So who do you guys think he's gonna fight next? I know that if Rashad beats Phil, then Rashad gets the shot. If he losses and Rampage wins, then Page will get the shot. Forest and Shogun are already set up, so who else? Maybe Bader if he wins? What about Vladdy? I dont think they'll give him the winner of SHogun and Forest, it's too far down the line. Same thing for a fight with Phil Davis...your take?

IMO either Rich Franklin Thiago Silva or even Stephan Bonnar.

I wouldn't be surprised if they held him off for Sweden/England vs Cyrille Diabaté... Whether it's at that venue or not. I wouldn't be interested in a Thiago or Franklin rematch, Bonnar's a possibility, Bader wouldn't be a bad match up.

My choice would be Cyrille though, just as its a test for Machida. It's a guy who has reach almost as long as Jones. If Machida could beat Cyrille standing, then all his biggest concern in the Jones Matchup would be the wrestling... And the elbows

If the UFC manages to sanction five round non title fights in time, I can see Rampage vs. Machida 2 if Rampage beats Hamill.

I think it would be a good time for Machida/Bonnar 2, Bonnar deserves a shot at the big names again.

too soon for bonnar. his only wins since 2006 are Mike Nickels, Eric Schafer, Krzysztof Soszynski and Igor Pokrajac. Machida would obliterate him at this point.

This is the man... Vladimir "The Janitor" Matyushenko

IMO Rich doesn't deserve the fight but I wouldn't mind seeing part 2. THiago is out for a LONG time....it's gonna be even longer then the year suspension cuz he's gonna have to reapply for a license and whatnot. Stephan would be a huge step down in competition, eventhough i love watching him fight. I think Vladdy is the best pick besides Bader....who knows though. Rich vs Lyoto in RIO would be awesome. The could hype it with the first fight.

What's the chances of them bringing over some SF guys? Maybe Mousasi? That would be a sick fight for RIO

I think he should fight either Bader if he beats Tito, winner of Rampage-Hamil, or the winner of Shogun-Forrest 2.

Their really the only logical options for him right now I believe. Anybody else would be a step down really. I think would for him to fight Nog but they train together.

My vote is for Bader....If/when he beats Tito. Both guys arfe climbing toward the top. And Lyoto isn't one to rush straight into another fight. I can the UFC letting him sit until Bader is ready.
