    I was wondering what they had coming in the pipeline myself. Perhaps another fight for Nog and then title?? Here's to wishing that somehow fedor would be signed though.

    MW is in bad shape. I still am shocked how they could pass on Kang. If Bisping announces a drop down I bet they will give him a decent match adn then put him at the top of the contender list. But I will hand it to Silva, he is putting all the top 185s in the UFC against eachother. Not sparing fighters and having them fight the mass amounts of piss poor talent.

    HW has plenty, Nog can be one fight away from a title shot (or give him one now), you can kind of give Vera a title shot after beating timbo, AA can be one fight away, CC is 2 fights away, plenty of scenarios.

    Nog and Crocop have to fight each other first, per Dana White. and Ver and Sylvia are fighting each other coming up in a couple months.

    I dont think they will give anything to AA because he has one fight on his contract remaining. You dont want to give him that kind of leverage. When he mauls Couture and wins the belt, he has ultimate negotiations power.

    They pretty much have to give it to AA unless they want Randy to sit for 6 months. Unless Fedor signs:x:

    Nog is lined up to fight whoever wins the Crocop/Kongo fight if I am not mistaken

    Like Brock Lesnar. I can't say that I want to see Couture fight that guy, though. He's way too big and Randy won't have enough tapes to study to develop a game plan. I don't think that his old WWE matches count :mamoru:

    Has it been confirmed that Kang has signed with K-1?

    I thought that if Crocop wins against Kongo, He gets the next title shot??

    If AA only has one fight left on his contract then they will give him somebody soft unless he signs a new contract. If he does then I think he will fight Vera.

    Winner of Vera/Sylvia I dont think either deserve a shot but Crocop cant really be a contender after 1 win Nog maybe who is he fighting next?

    MW no idea Hendo maybe

    Winner of that fight then I guess it might be a bit far away though I kinda want to see Kongo fight Nog just to see how badly he pretzles him.

    yeah dana white seems to be stacking up the divisions one at a time he has built a bad ass ww division all by himself and the lhw division was pretty decent but when he got a hold of pride he stacked it up. now it seems like hes working the hw division. hes got his money making champion with randy and now the division has legitimacy which it didnt when tim was the champion. hes got a decent stable of fighters and hes constantly making moves to make the hw division better. I dont see him making major moves in the mw division yet. It looks like hes going to start working on the lw division after this.
