kds if he beats Fedor than there is always a chance he also rematchs Barnett but I understand what your saying but while a lot of fans have Couture at #4 since he has 2 wins at HW a lot of UFC fan's and Dana White have Randy at #1 so I guess in their minds he's not skipping over but who knows.
mlsman I don't know If I would put him over Barnett and Nogueira but I might. It would depend on how the fight went.
livingdeadman he could still get a shot but it wouldn't be thought of the same way. Right now Randy is UFC champion if he loses he won't be then the fight would be much different, defiantly not for the #1 spot.
