Who shoould Rampage fight next?

I personally think that if Wanderlei beats Chuck it should be him. Some say the winner of Evans Bisping, I dont really think Chuck should get a re-match for beating Wanderlei. Only because the fight with Jardine. Then you have Forrest who beat Shogun. Shogun would have been an obvious choice had he not lost. I dont know about Forrest either considering he lost to Jardine also.Alexander beat Jardine but other than that who has he fought that makes him a contender? Its kind of a confusing time for the LHW. Lets put it to a vote..

well whoes to say that hendo shouldnt be allowed to face off agains silva.....he did ko him before......fact is we need to have some rematches.....

my idea is

have jardine vs houston if houston wins his next fight......then have griffin vs rampage.....

then you can either have wandy face the winner either way it will be a good promotion

either go with......rampage getting his ass kicked again

or i will avenge my student sorta idea

The most solid advice I can give to anyone who fights BJ Penn is...do not motivate the guy. Lets face it, BJ although talented, is naturally lazy. Your job is to NOT convince him to step on that treadmill.

only because

of what wandy has done to page in the past.....im really not jumping for joy to see a third face off between these two just yet

I voted for Houston, but realistically, I don't think it will happen. I think that Alexander should fight Forrest, and the winner of that fight should go on to fight Rampage.

Honestly, I think that Forrest will be the best challenge Houston has had yet, but I think Houston will win it and prove that he deserves a shot at Rampage.

Even if Wanderlei beats Chuck, I'd like to see him fight once more before he steps up for a title shot. He has lost two in a row and I would like to see him take his time in acclimating to the Octagon.

Well I voted for "Other" but that's just because I think it should be the winner of Chuck & Wandy, Machida, or Alexander. The ladder is run so terribly in the LHW division there is no real outstanding number 1 contender. The winner of Chuck & Wandy getting a title shot is obviously the most exciting fight because no matter what you get a rematch. However, Machida and Alexander have more of a claim based on their victories in the octagon. I really have no idea why i answered this poll since I have no real stance on the subject.. lol.


Thanks to NikosCC for the sick sig!

Wow, Jardine has really been getting the shaft lately. I guess beating the longtime champion and the guy who choked out Shogun don't count for much. Everyone just remembers the Houston KO, I guess.
My first choice is Forrest. I think he's earned it, despite the loss to Jardine. And let's face it Forrest vs. Rampage is a big money fight.
Jardine also deserves to be in the mix, but he's going to need a rematch with Houston first. It's the only way to get that monkey off his back.
The winner of Evans vs. Bisping will still be a fight away, I believe.
There are so many unknowns right now when Rampage be ready? When will Forrest be back? What will Jardine do next? Will Shogun rebound? Can Silva beat Alexander? Will Machida knock someone out and finally get some respect? And what the hell will happen with Chuck and Wanderlei?
It boggles the mind...
