i dont think he'll live up to his hype, not too impressed with vera. The heavyweight division has passed him by. But I think he'd have a better chance at heavyweight than at light heavy weight.

I hope he fights AA in december

possible december card AKA Greatest Card Ever-
Chuck vs Wandy
Serra vs Hughes
Vera vs AA
Cro Cop vs Big Nog (according to Cmill's translation of CC interview)

I know this is a longshot but its possible

The HW division passed him by? How so? He last fought in November and it was only in the past 6 months since Cro-Cop signed that any real depth began to be added to the HW's. So in the last 10 months he's missed 2, maybe 3 fights and I'm sure he hasn't just been sitting around, eating Doritos and watching Oprah. Before anyone says that he can't compete with the new fighters, remember who is fighting Couture for the belt and why.

Until he beats someone who's top 10 NOW, he's not in my top 10. I'd like to see him and AA, I'd pick AA, and I don't like AA lol.

and they signed big nog. I just dont think he's going to come in and be good. Hasnt fought any real contenders. I think if he gets thrown in with the contenders he'll get beat.

Plus the winner of Hendo/Rampage vs. Shogun? Probably a little too early but a man can dream, right??? hahaha god that would be a bad ass card

The reasons i call this card a long shot

Matt Serra vs Matt hughes - Confirmed

Wandy (confirmed) vs Chuck (has beat jardine with out injuries, then dana has to ok this fight - possible) so this fight gets a maybe

Cro Cop vs Big Nog - Neither is confirmed to fight in december let alone against each other ( cro cop said in an interview (thanks to Cmill) that he would be fighting in vegas in december against Big Nog) so this fight gets a maybe

Vera vs AA - I just made this fight up since neither has an opponent and it would be a great fight. And we all know UFC doesnt give us hardcore fans the fights we want to see. But its a possible. So this fight gets a maybe.

All these maybies equal a longshot to me, Plus Serra or Hughes could injured or staph(theres alot of that going around)
