Dana went 1-1.. He's wrong about the winner of Evans/Bisping being top 5 after the fight, but he was right about the winner of Alexander/Silva being in the top 10. As soon as he won, I removed Houston from his #9 spot, and moved up Machida to #9, and added Thiago Silva at #10.
i did the same thing with houston and silva. i figured thiago was going to win and with his impressive domination of houston i will say he should fight a top 5 figter next, maybe even shogun. it would be interesting since they come from the same camp...people don't realize that chute box is probably the top camp in the world and is, imo, a little better than x-treme couture.
as for rashad and bisping, i think neither of them are top 10, rashad being closest as i have him at number 11 and bisping at number 13. neither have impressed me in their fights and both looked really gassed in their fight. it was a sloppy slow paced fight that did not improve the rank for either fighter imo and if anything proved that bisping should move down to MW. it disgusted me how out of shape they were, especially since they were a main event.
i see the next LHW matches like this:
Forrest / Jardine rematch
Shogun / Thiago (or tito)
Sok / machida (is actually happening and i am really happy about this)
or Tito / Thiago (or shogun)
since rampage is hurt, it gives time for this stacked division to level out and let the cream rise to the top with a clear number one contender.
