Thoughts???

Bonnar would seem like a good choice, although 89 is probably too early for him to get back in, he said he would be back around the end of the year, possibly begining of 09.

maybe he"ll get somewhat of a can because not many of the top guys would be willing to take it on short notice, unless the fight is moved up to another event

Please MMA Gods let it be Wanderlei so he can have 2 first round knockouts then a title shot

Well, I don't think we'll see Wanderlei till Nov. or Dec., Jardine's booked, Bonnar's won't be ready(can't even fight on 90), so realistically, I think they're just gonna scrap the bout from the card, but reschedule it when Thiago is healed.

I said it on another thread, give him his title shot. I know it is probably impossible, and unlikely that Forrest would be even ready, but it would be well deserved, and a fight I would like to see.

Postpone a Machida match for a month or two and make it Franklin/Machida 2

Forrest Griffen vs Lyoto Machida. That would throw everyone for a loop.

I don't think they'll scrap the Jardine vs Vera fight and move one of those guys. They have to inject this co headliner with some hype since it doesn't have the battle of undefeated records mystique any longer.

I'm going to say Rampage Jackson vs Machida, because he's already in England. This would be a great oppurtunity for him to build some sponsership since he's training out there.

nooo

I'm already gutted about Silva

moving Machida would be too hard to take

other than the main event and perhaps Jardine - Vera, the rest of the card is pretty wack in comparision to other events

Wandy V Machida please at 89

FORREST!!! oh that's right Dana's scared (sarcasm)

This won't happen but it would be ideal. It's disappointing just to hear I might not get to see Machida. He deserves the shot more now than waiting for Chuck.

if not Shogun, why not Rampage? I think Machida-Shogun and Wanderlai-Rampage III are the match-ups to make now though.

It will be Wanderlei and Shogun will fight Rampage a I am so confident on this one.

Either have Wandy step in. Or wait till Thiago heals. Thats what I say.

I've been hearing rumors of Arona, which would be great EXCEPT, after last night it is clear Machida should get the next title shot. Hell he was gonna get next after Chuck, after he massacred Silva, so he should clearly get it now.
