I would say either Forrest, or Bisping
Forrest would be an exicting brawl and then after Forrest gets tired Shogun can take him down and finish him.
Bisping would get trashed by Shogun since Elvis almost made him tap Shogun would trash him.
I agree on Machida in a way I think that Shogun would win a decison against Machida but i wouldn't be exicting and not the way to introduce Shogun to American fans.

I say Bisping. His mouth is too big for its own good. Someone needs to be humbled.

I personally don't like Shogun so Machida sounds great! A fight against Forrest would be good too. Mauricio hasn't faced too many well rounded fighters.

I think he could take out anybody so whatever they put in front of him, i know will be a good fight. I'm hoping either, Bisping, Babalu or Ortiz

Are you joking Lil Nog, Arona, Cyborg, and Rampage aren't well rounded. Nakamura is a very good fighter and he has also faced some of the best stand up guys in the LHW divison.

Nakamura is my favourite fighter. I said too many, I didn't say any. He has versed people who are better strikers than he but he will have a big advantage in the grappling and strength department. You know what I mean? I respect Shogun's fighting ability, don't you worry about that.

5 ( I was only counting wins but Babalu is well rounded) fighters who r well rounded out of 18 not counting Nakamura and Overeem twice who are both very good fighters but not well rounded. thats 11 fights against not well rounded fighters.
One was Snake who is a monster at standup
One was Randleman who is probably the best pure wrestler in MMA
Eric Wanderlei is an amazing BJJ guy
He's beaten a couple scrubs in his first two Meca fights and his first four Pride fights.

I hate two tell you that is one of the best records in all of MMA he has faced all types of fighters. And I hate to say the UFC guys ren't all that well rounded.
