I got to think definately not Rampage. Too early for them to fight, UFC will want to hype it some more and build Rampage. Chuck looks unstopable right now. I have to think UFC 71 may be a tune up fight for Chuck, most likely being Jardine. I think Dana intended to have Forrest fight him if he would have walked though Jardine. They also probably want to build Rashad and Bisping some more, and i have to think Tito will take on Babalu after their next fights. I don't see the UFC bringing someone in (e.g. Little Nog) to take him on just yet because they will try to build up whoever they bring in with UFC fans (if they were ever not going to do this it would have been with Cro Cop). Rampage vs. Chuck is probably more likely for December/January '08 kind of thing.
No offense to Jardine but I would be very disappointed if he was the next guy to face Chuck, Jardine has no credibility as the number one contender at the moment, beating Forrest in any fashion is really not enough. I know why it would of happened, but if Forrest got that title shot then I would be moaning too.
I think the man to blame for this predicament i Chuck himself for eating up the top contenders over and over again and he really shows no sign of relent at the moment.
