But yeah, compare Rashad's and Machida's fights in UFC, and it really isn't even close who gets the shot. Machida needs atleast 1 solid win to prove he earns the shot, which is something Rashad did by KOing Chuck.
I would give Machida winner of Rampage vs. Wanderlei fight and give next title shot to the winner of that fight.
About the card; pure awesomeness, ending 2008 with style indeed. Really makes me wonder what kind of card we'll see at ufc 100 now :P
