I agree that Stevenson and Guillard are both up there. They're both getting close to deserving a shot. I don't know who would be a contender at this point in the Lightweight class. I'd have to guess Stevenson, Guillard and Spencer Fisher are up there.

I say:

Stevenson vs Guillard

Winner vs Fisher for #1 Contender

Winner vs Sherk

But obviously, this would put Sherk's first defence a ways down the road. So I guess they should see who of the three have the best chance/would make the better fight against Sherk.

Personally, I'd equally like to see Stevenson or Guillard get a title shot.

I dont think Sherk is going to fight next untill feb.

Just my opinion, maybe jan.

I personally think it will be against Joe Stevenson (if he wins this next fight).

Or Spencer Fischer, reason i say not joe stevenson is hed only have like 2 months to train after his next fight.

But we'll see eh?

What is it that is going to be on your mind when you're on your death bed? Will it be the tedious years of 9 to 5, or the memory of some great acheivement. Maybe a moment you stood in glory to the applause of millions.

lol your right, i almost forgot about hermes franca. he should probably get a title shot because he won at ufc 61 and 62.

If stevenson couldnt beat Neer I doubt he could beat Guillard. I understand that Neer did catch Guillard but I still see Guillard as a better fighter. All the best fighters get caught eventually.

I would love to see Melvin fight Sherk, but he needs to fight someone who is already established in the UFC first, like Stevenson. His shot will be a ways down the road still.
It is still too early for me to pass judgement on Joe just yet, I want to see how he performs in his next fight, and then go from there.
Mark Hominick should fight Melvin for the number 1 spot, and George should fight Fisher...

i think too many of these TUF guys win one or two fights and get thrown in the title picture. Joe and Melvin should at least win 2 more fights then have a crack at Sherk. Both on a good day stand a decent chance. When is Sam Stout fighting next.....Fisher should be in the mix after anothe win also. Florian may also be there but prob not for 9-12 months after just losing. Jens need to get back on the horse also and fight soon - hopefully UFC 66.
