    at first, i was gonna say that neither really deserve a title shot, but then i tried to think who does....


    is it too soon for a rematch against Fitch?

    Swicks lost 1 of his last 10 fights and that was to Okami a monster 185lber and swick was a tiny one.

    And I cant think of a 170lber who is a legit threat to him at all.

    fights in other weight classes shoudn't count towards whether or not he deserves a title shot IMO
    ah, good call

    speaking of whom, Rumble's fighting Yoshida next

    Ok he is a 4-0 UFC 170lber with other MMA experience still deserves a shot IMHO.

    Anthony Johnson would be a cool fight. Homeboy has good wrestling and good striking.

    that fight wouldn't go to the ground. Shields would get lit the fuck up on his feet.

    Neither Swick nor Kampmann have a great shot to win, but they both have a puncher's chance - and both are deserving. After this fight, and maybe a Jake Shields fight I think GSP needs to start eating some cheeseburgers and head to middleweight.

    All the star LHW's, a couple middle weights, and All the heavyweights. Choose your words more carefully next time.
