Now that Hendo has lost to Rampage, what do you think should be next for him? Discuss

I think that If he drops down (which I think he should). He'll get the winner of Okami/MacDonald.

Although I don't think that losing a fight in a different division should matter. But he might have to show the UFC fans what he's all about before they try to sell another title fight with him.

I don't have a problem with him jumping straight into MW contention or having one fight before it. It's not a terribly deep division as things stand. I think him fighting the winner of Okami/MacDonald is a good idea. Assuming he's going to cut down right now (I think he might). He's certainly capable of beating some of the other LHW's.

He's stil the Pride champ. So of course he should fight the winner of Anderson/Franklin.

He has the Pride belt, so he gets first shot. I see him fighting 1 more time at LHW though, then dropping down, since it'll be probably4+months till Silva will be able to fight again after beatin Franklin(or vice versa)

What top contenders? Let him murder a can if it is going to be a long wait before he can get his shot.

I believe if Rich wins we'll see Hendo vs Rich. UFC already stated that if Rich wins it will be hard to market anyone against him since he beat most the #1 contenders already. So Hendo vs Rich is reasonable.
If Silva wins he will get to face the winner of Okami vs McDonald match before we see him face Hendo.

If Henderson would get his first MW fight against someone else than the UFC MW champion, and got beaten, would then the guy who beat him be allowed to fight the UFC champion for the title unification...?

Seriously though, of course he should start with the title fight right away.
