  3. Patrick Cote vs Nate Marquardt would be awesome!

    Nate’s looked “Great” since his loss to Anderson. Unfortunately, Cote’s injury is going to sideline him for awhile. Also, given Silva’s intent on retiring after 5 more fights, I think that I only want to see him rematch one opponent. Out of all his previous fights, I’d prefer him to rematch Dan Henderson.

    I can’t agree with a bout between Lyoto Machida and Keith Jardine if he’s able to dispose of Thiago Silva. I think if Lyoto can finish Thiago Silva then he is undeniably the LHW #1 Contender and should get an immediate title shot. Having said that, if Thiago Silva wins I have no problem with him fighting Jardine next. I think Lyoto has disposed of more top tier talent while Thiago’s first top tier opponent will be Lyoto Machida.

  4. Giga,

    I agree that Lyoto deserves a title shot but I have a feeling they are going to give it to the winner of Wanderlei/Rampage.

    Cote vs. Nate would be solid also.

  5. Honestly, I wouldn’t blame them. As a fan of Chuck Liddell I would love to see him fight for the title one last time before he hangs up his gloves. If Wanderlei/Rampage fought for the title next, it’s the quickest route there. Especially if Wanderlei wins! I’m rooting for Wanderlei. I really would like him to smash Evans or Forrest.

  6. What about Fedor vs Lesnar? I’ve been waiting for awhile for Fedor to come over to the UFC to clean house.

  7. Brian,

    I would love to see Fedor fight in the UFC. I just don’t think it will happen. His managers are preventing him from signing an exclusive contract with them. His entrance alone would be worth the PPV money!
