I'd say Shogun is the first contender if he gets past Forrest. If Forrest wins, then he'll have to win one more and then I can see him getting a shot.
Liddell would have to beat Jardine and one more opponent, and then he can have his shot. Jardine is probably in the same boat as well, as beating Liddell would really elevate him in a lot of fan's eyes.
You could always justify giving Lyoto a title shot after beating Nakamura considering he is undefeated and I believe 3-0 in the UFC. That would boost him to 4-0, and at that point it becomes difficult to just shuffle him to the side, even if they don't like televising his fights.
And then of course is Wanderlei, who could definitely get a title shot if he wins his first fight in December. They have no problem giving a guy a single warm up and then throwing him in their for the belt (Heck, Henderson didn't even have to fight a warm up), so depending on his performance, he could definitely get a shot.
All the title fights are a little ways off, but there's still a ton of shuffling to do in the divisions so while we may not see any huge title fights soon, we're still going to get a lot of awesome events.
