Who do you guys think Wanderlei will fight if he doesnt fight Liddell in Dec.???

I think Machida could fight him but Wandy would kill him...... a rematch with Tito could be cool but Tito's already fighting Evans again......... Stephon Bonnar would be another could one..... I dont know??.... IMO Wandy would own the LHW division.

i dont think the winner of nakamura vs machida will fight him, just beacuse they are not a big name to the casual fan, i think stephan bonnar might be considerable one, also michael bisping, or maybe the winner of sakara vs houston alxenader(not very possible though, because as i said before they are not a big name for the casual fan), its hard to think of a possible opponent,having said that i would rather watch wand vs chuck by far than any of the other ones mentioned.....

He will fight Chuck. Remember Wandy has lost 2 straight fights, and seems to be differint fighter that dominated Pride. I don't think Dana will chance a loss to a lessor opponet, and that will destroy the pay day that Chuck vs Wandy would bring.

If Liddell gets too badly hurt against Jardine and gets suspended it might not happen, and this has been on & off before, so it's too early to say "it will happen". If Jardine somehow wins or puts on a good enough showing in a loss he could be the opponent.

If Chuck knocks out Jardine without receiving punishment, he'll definately fight Silva, but I don't see Jardine vs. Silva. Maybe Bonnar or maybe Vitor Belfort.

win or lose i think liddell and silva will fight in december. prolonging this fight any longer wouldnt be the best idea and i'm sure dana already knows this.

A fight between him and Tito or Vitor would be great from a hardcore fan and marketing perspective.

Im thinnking Bisping,Bonnar,Alexander if he wins for the fact that alot of people know him after the jardine tko,Tito rematch would be ausome but i dont think they would want to chance wandi losing three in a row like that.Im not sure this is me just venting.

Wanderlei will fight and destory chuck dont worry about it!Just hope chuck doesnt get his face messed up and have a months doctors suspension or something. If this happens then I dont think Wanderlei will fight anyone else I think the fight will just be moved back to a show that CHuck can make!
