Here are my picks for which fights should happen next. In these matchups I am also acting under the assumption that all PRIDE fighters are fair game.

Rampage v. Hendo(announced)
Liddell v. Wandy ( needs to happen before it can't)
Shogun v. Winner of Evans/Ortiz
Fihlo v. Kang
Bisping v. Soku (who's the real young gun)
Little Nog v. Loser of Evans/Ortiz
Arona v. Babalu
Griffin v. Alexander
Jardine v. Bonnar/Nickels

Any comments, criticisms, predictions, or just plain flamies?

I like Rampage vs Henderson and of course Wanderlei vs Liddell. I really don't want to see Shogun vs Evans/Ortiz though because Rua doesn't have a great takedown defense and might get beaten by a decision IMO. Filho vs Kang is good though it's 185. I'd like to add:

Sokoudjou vs Alexander (though Alexander hasn't proven himself, it'd be a war)
Nakamura vs Bisping or Babalu

You're right kang and Fihlo shoudn't be there

And as far as Shogun v. Ortiz/Evans, not wanting to have a fav fighters weakness exposed and see if he can handle it is not very competitive IMO

Shogun isn't one of my favorite fighters, it's more not wanting to hear the comments people make about how "overrated Shogun is." I'd rather see this fight in a year after Shogun has had a few fights in the UFC and has adapted. Looking back on it now it isn't very interesting to give Shogun a guaranteed win.

Filho / Kang is at 185... either way I wanna see it, but I think Chuck/Wandy could still be a huge draw!!!

Can someone please tell me why Houston is being mentioned so much. He beat Kieth Jardine. Big woop!

He needs to beat Tito, Evans, or Bisping before I put him in contention.

Yes, he destroyed Jardine, but Jardine is not a good fighter. He went to decision w/Stephan Bonner for Christs sake.

Does he have potential? Yes, but please dont put him in LHW contention until he beats someone reputible.

Im big Overeem fan, but he said he has to cut to much weight to make LHW, so he says he is going to fight only HW from now on

Meaning he should be picked up soon by Dana then he can figh Kongo, Arlovski, or Tim. I hope it is Tim, 'cause I would love to see Alistar put him in a Muay Tai clinch and knee the crap outta him.

All are good match ups for him.

i agree 100%. now is the best possible timing to hype this fight because it's an all-or-nothing winner-takes-all scenario right now. if the fight would have happened last year then the winner would be declared the best and the loser would still be considered a great fighter, but now whoever wins could be redeemed for their losses and the loser faces a long road to victory and possible retirement.

Overeem at HW with 5-minute rounds will be a force.
