I think Griffin should fight Michael Bisping for a possible title shot. As far as title shots go I think Liddell's next defense will be against Rampage

Just some guesses.... Griffin probably would have gotten a title shot if he had beaten Jardine. Now he's going to have to climb the ladder a little bit again before getting a chance at a title. In the event Rashad wins his fight on Thursday vs Salmon he may be just 1 fight away from getting a title shot. Perhaps Rashad vs Jardine, winner gets a shot. In the event Rampage beats Eastman in 2 weeks, they'll probably give him the Liddell fight, a la another Anderson Silva UFC entry: highly touted Pride talent wins an entry fight, then tries for the belt, plus Chuck wants it. Obviously all just speculation hinging on the favorite outcomes of upcoming fights and some good ol' MMA math though... Hopefully they'll do something like that, which means that Tito and Babalu could be open for a fight since no one will want to see Tito vs Chuck 3 or Babalu vs Chuck 3. IMO Tito vs Babalu would be a good match. Now if we could just somehow export Chuck for 1 fight or import Shogun for 1 fight I'd love to see Shogun vs Chuck... but I guess this is a topic for the MMA Lounge forum

Chuck is supposedly out 6 months with injjuries so that gives a lot of time for it to be sorted out. With Rashad and Jardine being on the same team, that probably rules them out fghting eachother. Babalu is supposed to be fighting Lambert next. I think Machida in the picture now is well. I think Rashad could beat Tito. He's got better wrestling , faster hands, and a great Chin. However they do it , I still see Rampage getting the next titile shot.

I think Rashad definitely deserves the next fight with Chuck, but it will probably be given to Rampage. Chuck wants it and they are trying very hard to hype him up. I think Forrest has to work his way back up and Jardine needs at least one more win. Forrest and Bisping would be a great fight though.

rampage possibly getting a beatdown seems actually somewhat unlikely to me... since he did man handle chuck at pride. but chuck's awareness has developed a bit more since the first fight with rampage.

I have to agree with Nate22
He manhandled Lambert with a dominating GNP. No LaynPray that time. It was very entertaing, you may want to watch it(UFC 63 hughesvPenn 2 undercard)

Rashad was a big dark horse coming from Ultimate Fighter.

I think he stands a chance with anyone in his division.

Seriously explosive!!

If you don't like Rashad... I'd love to hear your opinion on Koscheck

O, btw, Sublime fan?

Rashads not been very impressive until the last fight but he finished that one nicely. Hopefully he continues to develop his finishing power. He has some seriously good wrestling skills and that has gotten him through.

I would like to see him go up against a Babalu or a Tito before a title shot for sure.
