Forrest Griffin has the next shot at the UFC’s light heavyweight title.
But Griffin has already lost to Keith Jardine.
One-time 205-pound king Chuck Liddell wants another crack at the belt, currently held by his nemesis, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson.
Liddell, too, has already lost to Jardine.
And Wanderlei Silva, who has two wins over Jackson, concedes that while he’s thinking of dropping to middleweight after his fight Saturday at UFC 84 at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas, he also wouldn’t mind a shot at Jackson’s belt.
Silva, not surprisingly, has a bout with Jardine on Saturday.
And when it’s brought to Silva’s attention that Jardine has not yet had a crack at the belt, he’s puzzled.
“Keith is a very difficult fighter,” Silva said. “If anyone should be fighting for a title, it’s him.”Article
