    HW Mir vs Lesnar
    LHW Machida vs Rashad
    MW Anderson vs that guy
    WW GSP vs Alves
    LW BJ vs Florian

    Looks like the order of things within the UFC is starting to balance itself out. I dont see any one beating BJ, GSP or Anderson in their perspective weight classes right now and when Machida wins the LHW title I dont think any one will be able to beat him.

    unless Machida fucks Anderson's wife I think the belt is his for a while.
    Velasquez is the only HW qwith a shot of beating lesnar.
    Florian might have a good shot of beating Penn. And it kills me to say that.

    its funny because there are a lot of good guys in the mw division now a days but anderson is just so much better then every one else and thats what makes the division look bad. GSP is doing the same thing at ww for both of these guys theres no one that can touch them in their weight classes. Same goes with Penn I dont see any one beating him at lw

    I see Silva getting bored and losing the belt to someone that usually wouldnt beat him due to a lazy mistake.

    Anderson Silva had his first fight at LHW summer last year with James Irvin.

    Machida and Anderson will never fight one another. If they do, it'll be for record demolishing paydays.

    Machida probably isn't getting the next 205 shot

    Anderson has already gone on record to say that he would never fight some one who he is training with or any one he considers a friend because it conflicts with his ideals. It came up before in an interview if he would ever fight paulo filho because at the time they were both pretty big named MW's and he said he wouldn't.

    I think he will. After hearing what Jacksons plan was for BJ (dont try to finish early, make him do pushing movements so his shoulders would fill with blood and get tired, to slow down his boxing) I don't think there is anyone in the world who can gameplan like that camp. I don't think rampage will be able to take down Jardine.

    But regardless, Machida deserves it. I think that with his record, how long he's been waiting, and how emphatically he beat Thiago, it's enough that rampage should have to sit and wait, even if he did get robbed.

    rampage has been sighned to fight jardine any ways so its not like he can contend any time soon. I think the ufc is holding off on giving him a title shot till he gets his legal affairs in order. The last thing we need is a UFC champion in jail that cant defend for 6 months

    Dana has said that if rampage beats jardine, he gets the next shot. If not, Machida does.

    who's in front of him?

    Imo Machida is the only one that should be fighting Rashad right now.

    edit: nevermind
    I still think Machida should be well ahead of Rampage.

    All I remember was dana saying the winner of Machida vs Silva was getting the next title shot. Between Rashad, Rampage, and Machida, I dont think there is a bad matchup.

    Machida will walk all over Rampage imo.

    But i guess Rampage and Rashad is the real money winner as far as main events go. Machid vs Rashad is more interesting to me.

    I remember hearing that if Machida won he was going to get a title shot (but not necessarily *the next* title shot) - and if Silva won he was 1 more win away from a title shot.

    I think it will probably go Rampage vs Rashad next, with Machida getting the winner of that.
