Thats awesome. I think Nate is the perfect guy to beat Anderson. This match should open up the divsion. I hope the winner of Swick\okanmi gets the title shot after that.

Good. IMO giving it to anybody else would have been a bunch of crap. He's definitely earned it. I think Nate takes it, too.

Next up after that I think it should be Swick (if he beats Okami). Give Rich one more fight after J-Mac (assuming Rich wins that one).

It said sometime in 2007, so I don't know how excited I would get yet. I know it also said his timing matches up right, but I'm stil not sold until I see The UFC pushing it. Maybe if they start showing his darkmatces on unleashed it would be a start, or promoting him on inside the UFC, I'm not saying he's not deserving, but if Franklin has a dominating performance I think they will try to push that matchup quick.

Rich wasn't even competitve vs Anderson. Beating a guy like MacDonald hardly proves he deserves a rematch yet. Let him fight Lutter (who was somewhat competitve) after J-Mac or else a guy like Cote.

No he wasn't , but it was just a bad gameplan ( with a dash of dehydration thrown in) that made him gfet beat so badly to me. EIther way, my post was not about who deserves it, but who I think the UFC will have him fight.

According to MMAweekly; Nate The Great gets his shot in June.

Nice, Nate is very deserving and this should be a good fight... If this card pans out like the rumours say it will, it will be a damn good card with this match and GSP vs Hughes 3
