I want Kampmann v Bisping right now, reaaaaaaal bad. I actually really dig Bisping, but I think Kampmann would make him look reeeeal silly. I need Kampmann v Rich to. I need to see the 'upset'!
I agree completely with you, except on that whole digging Bisping thing. Thats just crazy talk.

I think Bisping should get one or two warm-up fights first after he moves down, and the same goes for Kampmann and Mc Fedries now that they come back from their injuries.

This is where the ufc should step in and move ppl (loss in the LHW shuffle or) fighting above their respective weight classes in to MW. Like rashad evans or the deaf dude for instance, they aren't the worst fighters but the aren't exactly spicin up an already over crowded division. Machida (even though he is just fine where is at) seems like a natural middle weight.

To Live is 2 suffer, 2 survive? well that is 2 find meaning in the suffering

Why would Okami even come close to deserving a title fight? He lost to Franklin and his fights are generally boring. Not many people even know who he is. Wasn't his last fight an undercard? I'm not saying he's a bad fighter or anything but why does he deserve one after fighting once since his loss to Franklin. Unless he's fought a couple more times I don't know about or remember.

the only fighter i see getting an immediate title shot is okammi, everyone else is just too far down the ladder right now. franklin is coming off a ko to silva, marquadt is coming off a loss to silva, then bisping, mcfedries, cote, grove and kampmann are either coming off loses, havn't done enough or just aren't popular enough to get a title shot soon.

if silva does lose though i think ufc will give him an immidiate rematch, if henderson loses then silva gets to redeem his loss to okami.

<--- the punch that started it all!

My current favirote fighters
Anderson Silva
Junior Dos Santos
Mauricio Rua
Alistair Overeem
Jon Jones

WAR dan hardy, paul daley, ross pearson and terry etim doing it for the britz!

Because when he beats Evan Tanner that will have made him 6-1 in the cage, all dominating wins. Tim Sylvia usually puts people to sleep, but he is getting a title shot. If he's dominating the other people in the division then why wouldn't he be the number one contender?



TEAM LORD:
1. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
2. Nate Marquardt
3. Goran Reljic
4. Amir Saddolah

The winner of Okami/Tanner, I don't think Kampmann should get a shot coming off an injury he should have a fight or two before he gets his shot.

Yushin Okami or Thales Leites.

Since Okami lost recently (Albeit, it was against Franklin and it was a fight where he (Okami) looked good in the third), I have to go with Leites, who is on a 3 fight winning streak.

Kampmann will need to have a warm up fight in order to get the rust out, and Evan Tanner has been way, way, WAY too inactive to even be considered.

It'll probably be the winner of Tanner vs Okami.
