Yah Griffin hasn't been himself, but I threw him in there based on his previous encounter with Chael albeit years ago. The rest of the list I stand by and I think the consensus is Chael's greatest weapon is his mouth. That's what got em the title fight somehow. I'm sure everyone was confused; Lyoto who was supposed to fight, then Hendo and even Gustaf who's now facing Mousassi. Definite cluster imo, but very intriguing.
Vitor vs Chael could very well be a repeat of the Randy saga. It would pain me to see that. I never forgave Randy so I was quite pleased that Master Seagal taught The Dragon the crane kick which sent em to retirement.
Gustaf, Mousassi, Lyoto, Hendo, Vitor, and DC are in line after Chael. I think within 18 months he will be dethroned and I'm placing a sizable bet on Black Fedor cuz I know he'll be an underdog with the best chance of beating em.
