you need to think logically vegas is tito's house to fight
he won't fight in canada,

with the upcoming bouts everyone is fighting evans and silva in may
shogun in april
alexander in march
hendo is off light heavy for now
that leaves jardine,machida, and he won't fight chuck or wandelai yet

i think he will fight machida in may
or maybe even belfort if they resign him
shogun will fight in april either jardine or even nakamura when his suspension ends
soku won't fight tito but he is a option for shogun but i doubt the ufc wants either one of these boys to start out 0-2 either way this year tito needs to step up and fight, i know he is only fighting once or twice a year but if he wants to be a contender he needs to fight more a year and get down to business and stop pulling a randy

rumor has it that tito will be fighting machida on may 3rd....just go to mmajunkie.com, to see a further explonation, as of now machida has agreed to fight tito, now it all depends wether tito accepts or not

i'd love to see shogun vs tito in may, i think tito would get schooled by shogun as shogun will want to prove something

Tito has repeatedly called out Shogun, so that might happen down the road. For now, I say Machida.

This will be a true test of whether or not he needs to drop to 185 since Tito cuts a ton and Machida barely cuts at all. We know he's very skilled. Let's see if he can handle someone like Tito (or Rashad)

I think it all depends on Tito's dealings with a new contract. If he doesn't sign a new deal before the fight I wouldn't be surprised if the UFC doesn't stick him on an undercard. He has no momentum right now with his last fight being a draw. If the UFC gives him Machida and Tito wins then Tito would have a leg to stand on in negotiations. If Tito signs I would think Wandy. Both are big enough names to be a big draw.
