    Over the next few months we are going to see:
    tito-machida
    liddell-rashad
    wanderlei-jardine

    I would much rather watch:
    tito-wanderlei (great rematch to have)
    rashad-jardine (opposing styles / two guys fighting for placement in the top of the division)
    liddel-machida (again great styles to watch fight one another)

    Add Thiago Silva to the mix and have him fight machida or jardine even.

    What do you guys think?

    I like your idea, but I'm not totally against the current matchups. Machida will smash Tito out of the UFC and take a big step up the ladder. Dana is trying to get Liddell on the wining track for an eventual rematch with Page, and Wand - Jardine will hopefully be an explosion in the Octagon.

    I'm going to enjoy Machida raping Tito too much to agree with you.

    I think your picks would definitely make for better fights, but I like the way the fights are set up now because it pretty much guarantees all my favorite fighters are going to win.

    I think the UFC is purposely setting these guys up to win. Machida will definitely tool Tito, Chuck will definitely murder Rashad, and Wanderlei should definitely knockout Jardine; and ill be glad to see Jardine, Tito, and Rashad out of the contender picture. Although i dont have a problem with rashad really, but i really dont think hes ready at all to fight for the championship.

    They're likely just building up to those fights that you picked, cuz after machida beats tito, and chuck beats rashad, they'll almost HAVE to fight eachother; and Wanderlei can take a fight with someone like Thiago.

    good idea, but i highly doubt you would see jardine fight rashad unless it was a title fight....and thats not ever going to happen so you can forget about that.
    rashad will move down to 185 after he looses to chuck, and i swear to god if one of my most hated fighters looses to one of my most loved fighters im going to kill somebody.
    Wanderlei must put a hurting on that troll jardine.

    I really don't like jardine vs silva. Think Silva needs a can to get himself back on his game... I would even prefer to see him move down to 185 and fight hendo or franklin, then anderson.

    He'll do that after this fight I bet, especially if Jardine wins.

    im not so sure that machida will dominate tito. i think tito stands a very good chance to grind out a decision agasint machida.

    but i am looking forward to seeing chuck demolish another wrestler. :run:

    Well if Wandy was complaining that Chuck was too big, hes not going to have a very fun time with Jardine in there. But god damn, I cant take another upset from techno viking.

    post fight interview, said chuck hit ALOT harder than he thought he would, used his reach really well and he was much bigger than him
