rumored that Wanderlei Silva's next fight could be with Rashad Evans, and then a title shot with the winner of Forrest/Rampage.

I would rather see SIlva get a title shot right away, or fight Thiago

I'd like to see Rashad stop getting spoon fed to the top ranks of the UFC and have someone like Wanderlei (assuming he can) put Rashad away once and for all. I have no idea how Dana White could have mixed Rashad up in the top 5 of the UFC, but I think its time for him to stop being so hyped when he can barely finish any of his fights at all, he just makes for a dull fighter who dances around and lays on you for three rounds, its just not in the best interest of the sport to let a guy like him run it, so they need a good guy like Wandy to knock Rashad off his horse.

Hopefully this is true, Wandy's a true LHW, he probably could make 185 and has made 220+, but doesn't mean he should.

And ring age is A LOT different then actual age. Wand started in IVC with no rules, and has been in some absloute wars throughout his career. He's not done by a longshot, but he's not in his prime by any stretch either, imo.

I see him beating just about anyone at LHW if he's aggressive enough. And he definitely needs to show Rampage some humility after all that smack he talked about the refs being against him in PRIDE.

Wandy's style might not be right for scoring a KO over Rashad. As much as I hate to say that. Much like others, the thought of Rashad eeking out a victory over Wandy makes me want to shoot myself in the head.

Silva vs Silva would be sick. Id way rather see this fight for the number 1 contender fight that silva vs rashad. Id like to see the silva vs silva, winner getting a shot at the title, then chuck vs rua, winner getting a title shot after one of the silvas. It would be awesome if it ended up chuck vs wandy for the title sometime next year. Itd be fun looking up all the old threads of everybody saying there both done, then getting to see them fight in the showcase which everybody wanted to see in the first place, for the belt.

No Rashad. I want to see Silva face someone who will fight him. I want to see Silva vs. Rampage 3, and then Chuck vs. Wand 2. Come one UFC make sure this happends.

we will see Wandy Rampage 3 dont worry. when Forrest steals his belt, Rampage will be on the same level as Wandy. just which will happen first. Wandy vs Page3, Chuck vs Page3, or Chuck vs Wandy2.

I can guarantee at least 1 of those fights happening this year.

I think Rashad would control Wandy with considerable ease, and grind out a UD

Everyone seems to be forgetting Machida. He deserves a title shot before Wandy who is 1-1 in the UFC.
