    I believe that Shogun will beat Machida because Muay Thai is better than Karate.

    Doesn't Machida also cross-train in Muay Thai?

    Machida vs. Shogun will probably be interesting for a few minutes before Rua gets knocked out. The aggressive Chute Boxe style he's got is going to play right into Machida's hands.

    Not currently, although he has. Also, Sumo, Shootwrestling, boxing, judo, bjj.

    Shogun has very slick Capo.

    Who else in the LHW division really deserves a title shot right now? Shogun is the best choice based on his former stature in Pride, and a fairly impressive performance against Chuck (no matter how washed up Liddell may be) in April.

    Thiago isn't compelling or deserving based on his first fight with Lyoto, and he took Jardine completely out of the picture in their fight. Rich Franklin not only just lost, but hasn't been at 205 consistently enough to put 2 wins together in that division. Cane hasn't fought anyone yet, and isn't marketable either. I'd love to see a fight against Lil' Nog, but he hasn't even had his first UFC fight, and needs to beat someone at least top 15 before he deserves a title shot.
    In fact, aside from the winner of Evans/Jackson which isn't going to happen anywhere near soon enough, the most deserving person for a LHW title shot is Anderson Silva! Of course, we all know why that isn't going to happen.

    It's because he's black, isn't it?

    It's because he does sexy dances before and after every fight, which disturbs your average insecure MMA fan.
