Looks like Evans will fight the winning of Machida/Silva now......

And if he doesn't then Joe Silva needs to be let go and someone else needs to start picking the matchups....

why not griffin v jackson 2? they both fought at 92, jackson already said he wanted a rematch, and im 100% positive that forest would be down for that fight. jackson v. jardine makes zero sense to me

Forrest won't be ready until July or so because of his hand injury.

They need a main event that can go in March.

I don't think it should be Jardine vs Jackson either, but I dont' want Jackson vs Rashad. I don't like the lose your title, beat one guy, get your title shot mentality. I think it should be Loyota vs Evans, once he gets through Silva.

I understand your thinking, but look at the situation. You have to look at how Rampage lost his title(controversial decision), and the way he won his last fight by handling one of the top fighters in the world. I think that he deserved a shot.

I actually understand this matchup. Rampage doesnt get that title shot after the 1 win over wandy and I think that is, is because forrest doesnt have the title anymore.

Forrest is injured. Then UFC is trying to build up Rampage or maybe jardine if he wins, with leg kicks like forrest and weird striking.

And Ohio card needed a draw and rampage is that draw.

I said it before, favor for a favor. Anyways, It is two big names, just not maybe the ones that made the most sense. Now, What if somehow and I won't put it past the man, Thiago Silva defeats Machida, Okay, now do they, will they give him the shot at Evans? You know that was rumored for UFC 84 in the beginning stages, but when Shogun pulled from the 85 card, they scheduled him to fight Liddell(which was scrapped obviously until 88). And then, in this crazy world I am talking about, Jardine wins against Rampage...then what kind of pile would we have? Or would it be?

With Machida/Silva, Jackson/Jardine, Cane/????, Liddell/Shogun, coming in the next three months, we do have one of the best set of matches in a division soo highly touted, and crowded. I know we could switch some of those names to better suit your liking, but let's be honest, these are great deciding fights. We need answers and yeah, Jackson is 'not' getting the immediate title shot everyone has been dumping on, so give Joe a 'slight' break...
Now Wanderlei better decide what he wants to do because this division will take off in the next three months, with or without him

should be a good fight. i think jardine will come in very cautious. most of you need to give jardine some more respect this guy can beat anyone on any given night and i think he's proven that by now.

This is to funny someone should tell Jardine that you want to have KO's on your win side of your record.

It kills me when the UFC puts on fights between two fighters that I like because I never want either of them to lose. But it happens so often I guess I'm starting to get used to it. I really don't wanna see Jardine get knocked out again, but at the same time I want to see Rampage dominate Evans. Still undecided on this one, but I know both guys are capable of getting the win, and it's gonna be fun to watch either way.
