The incredibly jacked Gleison Tibau is typically the most muscular man in any lightweight bout. When he met former middleweight Francisco Trinaldo at UFC 153, the long-time UFC vet appeared undersized for the first time in his lightweight career.

Victories over the likes of Jeremy Stephens and Rafael dos Anjos show that his well-rounded attack could soon earn him a place near the top of the stacked lightweight division.
Here are five potential fights for Tibau to take next.
