I can see Russell fighting someone like Caballero as his first step up, assuming Caballero actually wants to fight someone at some point. Russell-Mares will happen in the next couple years at 126, and Russell (if he's as good as advertised), will mop the floor with Mares. And I'm a big Mares fan, but that's how much I believe in Russell's ability.
