Soko is top level. Anybody who knows MMA knows that. Do yourself a favor look at rankings on sites and lhw fighters. Most have Soko in the 7-10 range, and Tito right at 10 or outside of 10. And you dont understand MMA at all if you think you have to finish someone to dominate them. Did you ever see CCotoure Sylvia. That was a 5 round fight. And it was a domination by Cotoure . And Machida utterly dominated Tito, like few have done. Had the first round gone seconds longers its over right there. And he destroyed Rich Franklin and Stephen Bonner , both long tenured ufc fighters. So now you resort to saying Tito and Soko are not top fighters. What your doing is called reaching. You got nothing and your now slandering top fighters just to prove a wrong point of Machida not deserving a title shot. Just cause Machida destroys them does not make them not top fighters, it just shows how great Machida is. Your a hater not a realist.

The only possible canditates right now are:
Rampage, because of how that fight ended with all the stuff going on about it being too close. (although I think Forrest won that decision)
Machida, because he's undefeated and beat some decent names. (although I think he needs to beat a top 10 LHW first)
Liddell/Evans winner, because it just makes the most sense. Liddell beats Wanderlei and then Evans. Just seems like enough to me. Or Evans stays undefeated by beating the top 10 Liddell.
The Liddell/Evans winner just makes the most sense to me right now.

If Evans beats Liddell you have to give him a shot. As much as I cant stand the guy, he will have earned it.

the LHW division is really a mess right now..with contenders
Wanderlei and Chuck both are coming off of wins..but lost atleast twice each before the win...
Jardine was getting close...but just lost..
Sokoudjou needs more wins
Machida is probably the most deserving only beacause he hasnt lost and has some big names on his win list (although not all were in UFC)
Shogun self inflicted his self outof the picture by fighting injured
Thiago Silva needs to face someone good...
Matt Hammill could move a step closer if he beats Franklin...but still too far down the line..
if Rashad beats Chuck he could get the shot..
i dont know..Machida gets my vote I guess
