Who has the best shot at beating Rampage

I was just wondering who everyone on here thought would have the best shot at taking the belt away from Rampage. I know we have had some upsets and all but i really think Forrest would give Page a hell of a fight....

Thoughts...

WAND maybe (just maybe) still has what it takes but he'd have to count with Rampage pushing it up to the fence. But Randy would probably work at that with Silva. If that problem plus the slams are overcome he at least has the firepower.

Other than that maybe Houston if the fight doesn't go on for more than 3 minutes, then Houston would gas. (Partly a joke). But we need to see his ground game.

Maybe Forrest but I think he'd get beat on the feat and not being able to take it to the ground, or get taken down and overpowered.

Sokoudjou and Arona definately need to arrive.

Soko vs Houston in a KO power match!!!!! WAR SOKO!!!! Like a five second long fight

EDIT: Maybe Lyoto if he can stay elusive (wich will be hard in the clinch)

Where's Wanderlei? :<

He has massacred him twice. Sure it's a while back, but he should still have been an option. ;p

Out of those? Forrest, but I don't think he could knock him out and I can't see Rampage gassing with his new training camp. It'd have to be decision (if Rampage didn't KHTFO), which would be cool anyways. Another 25 min war.

Lyoto machida of those you mentioned but those definitely are not the best. I'd still put wanderlei, shogun, hendo or rameu (sp?) above any of them.

I agree. This is a terrible thread, it doesn't even list the top five fighters in that division. We should all make it a point to reply no more to this pointless poll. Either do some research and include the fighters in the poll that deserve to be there, or go try and get FEDOR signed, either way at least you will be away and off of this forum.

So you think none of these will get the next title shot...I guess they will give a fighter coming off of a lose a chance at the title. Watch the sport and you would know.
