    Most of the top options can't or won't happen... yet. And Franca is out for almost a year as well. My bet is that it will be Spencer Fisher.

    I want to see Heurta fight Penn and take his first loss in the UFC. This mexican posterboy bullshit really annoys me.

    Ya I know but I just really hate when they build up not so great fighters just for a target fan base. Kinda like Bisping and the British UFC events.

    I pray for Penn vs. Fisher. Can't wait for another gif of Hughes squirming as his buddy gets choked the fuck out.

    the only one i would care about would be gomi. the Pride/UFC title unification would be the only interesting thing about it though. BJ will destroy any of those guys :hs:

    I'm pissed at Sherk now that it won't be on the November card in NJ.


    :rofl: K-Flo would get Knocked the fuck out in the first round

    BJ already housed Gomi. No need for them to fight again.

    Hellboy is where it should be at!

    But I picked Din cause Din was whoopin him till BJ caught him with that lucky knee.

    Yeah, I think the way things have panned out, Fisher is probably the top contender atm according to the UFC management.

    I know I'd prefer some of those other matches, but I think it's going to be Fisher.

    I bet most of the people voting for Huerta want the fight to happen so Penn can derail his bandwagon.

    not that I think Huerta deserves it more than Hansen, I think they would only have Penn fight a Pride LW if it is one of their top guys but I wouldn't be surprised if it was one of the lower UFC LWs

    Hmm true!

    Arguably Florian could be interim champ, so maybe Florian v Penn or Florian v Fisher?

    Whatever happens, I want to see Penn get that title and then see some of the Pride guys cut to 155 and see some fucking wars!
