    :noes:

    Which fight would you rather see and why?

    I think its safe to assume a win against either of these guys and its title shot time!

    Thiago. More potential to be exciting.

    I would like to see him beat Machida too.

    It would be a fight to see if he really has improved his game recently.

    If he comes out and swings like a maniac Machida could pick him apart down the middle like Cro Cop did.

    At the very least we would see someone bring the fight to Machida.

    That sucks, I really like Thiago and Machida and don't want either to lose to Wanderlei, but I'd definitely be rooting for wand.

    Meh they're screwing things up. The LHW picture is muddied enough without being determined to make the 2 guys that haven't faltered yet get beaten.

    IMO Machida is the #1 contender, while T Silva hasn't been completely proven, so Silva v Silva makes sense.

    I think White wants to see Silva v Rampage III and wants to try and make that happen.

    I think he beats Thiago pretty handidly. Him and Machida could be a good fight, I think Wandy presents enough pressure he might be able to throw Machida off his game.

    yeah I wouldnt want to see him fight machida either I would much rather see him fight thiago. Dana white might fuck up royal if machida beats him because I think hes banking on the fact that wand can beat him but I see that fight going either way. Wand didnt do to well against chuck and machidas ability to control distance is at the same level as chuck if not better.

    I would just put thiago vs wand it would be a better fight and wand would have a higher chance of winning and it would put him closer to the rampage fight. Right now the only real contender for the title is machida but I guess dana wants to give him one more fight before throwing him in and rashad hasnt done anything to warrant it yet.

    imho, wandy is exactly the kind of guy machida wants. somebody that relentlessly will walk forward. wandy would get jabbed over and over while trying to track machida down. it would be pretty ugly :o

    Machida picks him apart for 3 rds and wins a decision everyone crys about it being boring.

    Id prefer to see him fight Thiago..

    Then the fight I really want to see Chuck v Wandy 2 Get these guys coming off a few big wins I think itll be an awesome fight..

    Wand vs Machida = 15 mins worth of rounds and 15 seconds worth of action.

    I am surprised he is sop willing to fight someone from Chute Boxe, but i guess they have all gone their own ways now.

    I'd like to see him fight Machida, I am pretty sure Randy could help him game plan a way to beat him.

    I'd like to see Wand vs Machida just so we can see a high quality striker take the fight to him. He's never fought someone as aggressive and talented as Wanderlei.
