I think both Bisping and Machide need to fight some tougher competition before they are allowed a title shot.
for the first time
Machida is hands down of the best pound for pound fighters in the world, but the UFC still does not put him in good match-ups because he is a decision fighter.
Here is the scenario, (if) Shogun Rua wins, I think he will want one more fight underneath his belt, before he gets a shot at the championship.
So that leaves Chuck Liddell waiting and wanting a title shot.
I say, you match up Shogun and Liddell and see who really is the true number one contender.
Also underneath of them you have the likes of (no order for shot)
-Renato "Babalu" Sorbal
-Wanderlei Silva (If he signs)
If both upsets occurr at UFC 76, and Houston Alexander wins, I think you could see a Griffin vs. Alexander match-up to determine who fights the champion, then a Liddell vs. Ortiz match-up to make sure Liddell does not lose 3 straight.
