If Wanderlie doesn't fight Liddell in his next fight, then who should he fight?

There are a few good matchups out there that I would like to see. One would be the winner of Ortiz Vs Evans 2. If Ortiz wins, that sets up another epic fight, that speaks for itself. If it's Rashad, that would also be a nice fight. It would give Evans the contender fight that he would need after beating Tito. Also it would give Wanderlie a fight against a fairly big name, so the fight could be hyped. Another match-up might be the loser of Jackson Vs Hendo. I know he has fought both of them but I wouldn't mind a rematch.

Thoughts....

i think they will give him the winner of Lyoto Machida vs Nakamura.......

and if they dont wanna give him a possible top contender as his first fight i think they Will give him the Winner of Houston Alaxander Vs Alessio Sakara

The only problem with the winner of Machida Vs Nakamura is they aren't really big names for the casual fan. The UFC should be looking to put Wanderlie against someone who is well known in North America. I could be wrong thats just the way I see it.

I agree putting Wanderlei with a somewhat big name.....the choices are small...but i would love to see tito or rashad...but defineatly chuck though.

the problem with tito is that he is fighting at ufc 77, and most of the rumors are that wanderlei will be fighting on Dec., so it will ufc 79 Dec29...........so i think it will be to close for tito to fight wanderlei 2 months after his fight with rashad....so i am pretty sure its not tito..........but if he happens not to be fighting at ufc 79 i agree tito would be the best 2nd choice..

so all fingers are pointing at chuck right now, it only makes sense......but in the case of that not happening maybe they should give him stephan bonnar, or bisping, or some TUF guy.....

Bonnar would get eaten alive! I don't think Bisping is ready for someone like Wanderlie, although I guess he has to learn sometime.

ohhh yeah i forgot plus tito only has one fight left on his contract and he has been talking about leaving ufc so dana probably wouldnt give him that big of a fight until he renewed his contract. thanks for reminding me.

i would rather see him fight machida or babalu then, if not tito or chuck

Np.....yea machida would be a great match, but ocho-cinco mentioned that he is not a really big name for the casual UFC fan, and the ufc probably wants give him a guy that is recognized, kind of the same thing they are doing with shogun(giving him a Popular TUF guy), and Babalu i wouldnt be sure, it would be a great fight, so choices are babalu or a TUF guy, and my personal favourite(if not chuck or tito of course) would be against the winner of sakara vs houston,,,,both very aggresive fighters, and would make wanderlei look very good.....

i think chuck should fight the winner of forrest/ shogun. there really isn't any other big names out there for him to fight. maybe rashad if he beats tito, but lets get serious, that won't happen. it's to soon for a chuck - tito rematch, and i think that chuck deserves to fight a big name. so if its not for the title then who else is there other than forrest or shogun?

***oh shit, my bad i thought we were talking chuck's next opponent.****
for sure silva should fight winner of tito/evans or babalu, assuming he wins.

Wanderlei Silva vs. Rashad Evans? Please, if there's a lord above let this fight happen so I can watch Evans made into a complete and total fool. Wanderlei would DESTROY Rashad. I can't even believe people bring that up hahaha

I Agree that Rashad would be way over his head against Wanderlie, but this fight could happen.

im not sold on alexander yet, i think jardine disrespected and overlooked alexander and houston made him pay, but i need to see more of him before i get ahead of myself and put him in there against wandy, or think championship bout for that matter
