Im not really too sure if Rashad will be Liddell's NEXT opponent but he will surely be getting one soon enough. I really like Forrest but i dont tihnk that he has earned his shot yet.

Griffin needs to fight Babalu or Bisping if he even wants to be considered for a number one contender fight me thinks.

Don't get me wrong, I like Forrest just fine, but his sloppy boxing style is a horrible matchup against Chucks counter punching style. It would end up as a HL KO fo Chuck no doubt about it. I realize that the guy has worked for it, but I see it as just being a big payday for Griffin.

As for Bisbing, he needs to fight a Babalu or Ortiz just to prove himself as a LHW contender. Winning the TUF show, and fighting a couple of cans doesn't convince me. I like his fighting style; he's got the skills and the personality, but his best bet would be droppint down to 185, IMO

If rashad fight Chuck its going to look like every other fight chuck has had since becoming champ, its going to be rashad trying tyo take chuck down and not being able to then he'll try and throw with chuck and lidell will couter punch and get the knockout. Ithink rashad will be champ someday maybe but after chuck retires and he'll have to beat rampage. Right now idd like to see jim fight babalu or tito, even keith Jardine but that wont happen.

i dont think he will fight griffin cuz griffin could connect with a wild punch and ko him. i think rashad will fight grapplers untill he gets his title shot.

there is no way Griffin should get a title shot after losing to the Dean of Mean.

Rashad could be close to a title shot but I would wait a couple fights if I was him. Keep in mind he hasnt beaten any good fighters yet. Have him fight Tito, Babalu, someone in the top ranks within the UFC at 205

rashads not ready for chuck, if machida wins his fight with hoger i'd like to see a fight between rashad and lyoto

he has no impressive wins, the best guy he has beat is Lambert so he needs to fight Tito, Babalu or Griffin even before they even think about giving him a title shot

It looked like Aimes (Sp? That big f**ker he fought on the TUF show) conected with some wild haymakers, and Evens didn't even go down... I don't think that Forrest hits any harder than that...

That and it looks to me like Rashad has a pretty hard head

Good call... Sounds like it'd be a good matchup... Hope to see that one in the near future.

i agree fully "The human blanket" that is a good name for him. I dont think he should fight chuck yet but if so bring on the beatin. If Rampage gets a shot which i dont think he will cuz the last time the ufc let a pride fighter get a title shot after one fight one the ufc's most dominate champions got destroyed, but if Rampage does get his shot i feel he will beat chuck

If you remember his last 2 fight's I think you'll see that he has been finishing and not just laying n praying anymore. Either way I disagree with you on Rampage vs Chuck . So when it happens , would you like to make a fantasy wager? Please let me know
