I think it'll be Shogun, if he gets past Griffin, which he should. And what if Hendo loses, will he go back to MW? And what if Shogun wins the title, and Liddell and Wandy fight, Wandy wins and is up for a title shot? Will they match up Shogun and Wandy? I think not. Even though they said they'd fight if they had to. It'd be interesting to see, but I think Shogun could beat Wandy.

i think the would have rampage in one of those fights, buddy... he would be a former champ if say shogun wins. They probably would have liddel or wandy vs rampage and winner of that would fight shogun...

I hate how fighters won't fight their friends if one of them has the title.... buisness is buisness... deal with it..

If they dub the shogun/griffin fight "Winner gets title shot" and griffin does a Gonzaga on shogun, UFC gonna have a really tough time promoting griffin as their No. 1 contender

shogun will destroy forrest, and then fight hendo/rampage winner for the title. chuck is almost likely going to fight wandy as it is DW's dream match for years.

First of all, I was answering the question of who would end up fighting the winer of Rampage/Hendo.
And as to your post, no they wouldn't. If Rampage loses to Shogun, their not going to give him one fight and then the title shot again, like you said. There's too many fighters now. He'll have to fight probably two fights.
Assumming Rampage loses to Hendo or Shogun, he'd have to wait a little while. Chuck would get a shot (assumming he wins his next couple of fights) before Rampage would again.
So what are you talking about, 'buddy.' If Shogun beats Griffin, then he'll probably get a title shot (if somehow Forrest wins, I don't know what'll happen). Then the winner of Silva/Liddell (assumming Liddell gets past Jardine), if they match them up, would get the next shot (if Silva wins and would fight Shogun). Then you have a few ppl waiting in the wings.
Depending on how it plays out there are many things that could happen. The loser of Rampage/Hendo is in the wings (unless Hendo loses and goes back to MW), then you have Shogun who'll probably fight for the title next, then you have Liddell or Silva, depending on if they win or not, and who wins if they're paired up against eachother. After that is when Rampage would get his next shot (if he wins a couple fights before then) assumming he loses to Hendo or even Shogun. Chuck was the champ for quite a while, and after one loss, if he wins his next couple of fights, he'll get the shot before Rampage (if he loses to Hendo or Shogun). I'm no Chuck a**-kisser, but that's just the way it would be.
Damn this is complicated and hard to explain. Of course Rampage is in the mix, he's the LHW champion, what do you think? If Rampage loses, then Chuck, if he continues to win, will get a shot before Rampage would again.
It would be:
Shogun/Griffin vs. title holder (Rampage or Hendo)
then Wandy/Chuck (if Chucks beats Jardine) vs. title holder
I think I've just said the same things over and over about fifty times. Sorry.

Shogun will unless He loses or Hendo wins because if he wins its much easier to sell any match with Chuck in it and thats whats all about it isn't it



This is a very valid point. If Dan wins(he won't but lets play devils advocate) a Henderson vs Rua main event won't be a huge money maker for the UFC. I know I would love it, but the common fan doesn't know these two fighters. Chuck would be a good option, as long as he gets past Jardine, because he is a huge PPV draw, and he is Dana's poster boy. On the other hand if you move Chuck in to fight Dan you put off the blockbuster of Chuck/Wandy even longer.

All that being said Rampage will win, and he will fight Shogun. Wandy vs Chuck probably happens on the same card with the winner getting a crack at the belt.

Even though Chuck was a dominant champion, I don't think he should get an immediate rematch. I think after he beats Jardine (safely assumming), he would've gotten a rematch, but since the Liddell/Wandy talk has been going on for so long, they'll make them fight to see who'll fight against the current title holder (either Rampage, Hendo, or Shogun).
With the influx of Pride fighters, it's hard to give everyone what they think their due is. Besides Rampage, the LHW champ, there are four ppl right now who have a legitimate argument that they should fight for the belt.

My bet is shogun because chuck will need to win a few times before they let him back at the title

If Couture beats Gonzaga, I think it would be awesome to see him pull a Henderson move and try to hold both titles at the same time. If Henderson beats Rampage that would make it even better. Couture vs Henderson would be a great fight.
