i think they'll have jardine or alexander. im hoping for the chuck fight, it still makes sense to have that fight. both fighters coming off of a loss. guess we'll just have to wait and see.

nevermind, i see alexander is fighting a different silva in november.

Alexander is fighting at UFC 78
Jardine said he doesnt want to fight again till next year
If this is true and its a proper announcement then it will have to be Chuck, imagine them building it up like that with Rogan and Dana in the cage with him and then just having Sakara walk out or something

Last I heard, both Wandy & Chuck had verbally agreed to the fight, but nothing had been signed so it's not yet official but heading in that direction.

i think we can rule out a few:

bisping & rashad - fighting eachother.
jardine & tito - said to be taking time off until 2008.
thiago silva & houston alexander - fighting eachother.
forrest - injured?
shogun - injured?
bonnar - fighting soon.


possibilities:

chuck liddell
ryota machida

Think of it this way... it's a fight people have been waiting years for. With the recent blow the UFC took from Randy leaving and the reasons he gave... it would be a perfect move for the UFC to get people to be talking about something BIG!

The UFC has to have Chuck fight Silva now. This is their last shot to have a huge fight. One more loss by either and the fight goes down hill. The only way the fight could get bigger is if, and it's a big if, both fighters go on one hell of a tear, which is very possible, but does the UFC want to take the chance?
