    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Who gets a title shot now?

    Just wondering who you guys think gets a title shot now in each division?

    206 +
    Randy vs. Nogueira or maybe Barnett

    205
    Quinton vs. winner of a wandy vs houston fight maybe

    185
    Silva vs Franklin

    170
    Hughes vs Serra than maybe the winner fights the winner of a GSP vs. Fitch fight

    155
    If the title is vacated than maybe stevenson vs. penn, id like to see melendez here if he'll sign with ufc.

    Isn't Dan Henderson technically still the 183-pound Pride champion? Although he lost the 205-pound unification bout with Rampage, I was under the impression that he ONLY lost the 205-pound belt. If this is the case, does this mean that we might see a Pride Welterweight/UFC Middleweight championship unification bout in the near future?

    Oh, and back on topic... I think a Randy/Nogueira fight would be the bee's knees. Of course I would root for Captain America, because I'm an AMERICAN, dammit!

    So many LHWs it's getting ridiculous.

    but @ kingmiracleman: that would make sense. sucks for Henderson if he loses them both.

    heavyweight: randy's not fighting till next year, so there's some time. we'll never see fedor or barnett. vera vs sylvia is coming up. i'd like to see nog vs kongo. if vera and nog win, winners fight for top contender. if kongo wins, i'm not sure. if sylvia wins, then randy vs cecil peoples.

    light heavy: quinton looks ready, but nobody else is. i truly fear he will fight the winner of tito vs rashad 2. i'd like to see houston alexander vs lyoto, jardine vs wanderlei, forrest vs chuck, shogun vs... i don't know. bonnar. between those four fights, we can find a top contender. we need sokoudjou.

    middleweight: other than silva and franklin (edit: and henderson if he wants to be), i'm not sure the ufc has any plain old contenders at 185, much less a top contender. i could see herman vs leben, so the winner can be fed to the lions (we can dream), followed by... cote vs quarry? yushin okami vs the rumored troubled return of evan tanner? still on the books jeremy horn vs still on the books royce? i'm reaching. i'm really reaching.

    welterweight: matt vs matt, winner vs gsp, winner vs karo/first matt loser, winner vs fitch/second loser, winner vs shields/third loser... by which point maybe nick diaz will be back in the ufc, or marcus davis will be ready. this division is good.

    lightweight: bj vs stevenson, winner vs florian, winner vs fisher. tyson griffin is not allowed near a title fight, he's bugged in this release and can't lose. roger, if he can win a couple actual fights (probably won't get those till they do a ufc in mexico).

    those are my thoughts at the moment. i may not agree with them tomorrow.

    HW - winner of Silvia / Vera
    LHW - lots of guys with roughly equal claims
    MW - Henderson for unified title
    WW - Hughes then GSP (if he wins his next fight)
    LW - Penn vs. Stevenson

    As far as LHW goes, this could work:
    - Jackson / Alexander
    - Griffin / Machida
    - Rua / Jardine
    - Liddell / Silva
    - Evans / Ortiz

    LHW, Jardine could possibly have the title shot, though his loss to Alexander weighs heavily, Jardine has rebuilt himself well.

    Alexander maybe for a title shot, though I am not sure he is remotely ready for Jackson.

    I would still like to see Liddell vs Wand, even though it doesnt matter as much anymore.

    Griffin vs Machida, is a fight I would like to see.
