I'm am! Both Jardine and Griffin fought him pretty evenly. I agreed with both decisions, but they were basically even matches. That's not a slap, but all three need to improve before deserving a shot.

I think its already too late for Jardine.

By the time Jackson comes back he'll be very rusty and lose another decision or get flash KO'd. He'll also be older... lol.

Forrest COULD become champion again... But it's a longshot.

The only reason I want Rampage to get a title shot is because both Machida and Shogun will absolutely destroy him. His whole acting schtick has pissed me off to the point where I don't care what he does. Not to mention his piss poor/crap coaching on TUF.

I'd be interested to see a Rampage vs. Shogun rematch... Shogun does good against 1 dimensional punchers with KO Power. Rampage will get low kicked to hell in this one. Shogun wouldn't stand in front of him swinging wildly ala Wanderlei. If a Jardine uppercut can make Rampage blackout for a few seconds... I think Shogun has what it takes to counter punch him into a late TKO or at least a hard fought decision like Forrest did.

Actually I wouldn't mind seeing that, either. But it would even be sweeter at the hands of Rashad.

Shogun already dominated Rampage, back when Rampage was in his prime.

Couture/Machida would be GREAT matchup, and obviously a very good draw.

Machida/Shogun isn't exactly setting the box office on fire, so getting Randy in the mix isn't a bad idea at all, for fans or for the UFC coffers.

he couldn't deal with Liddell's hands, nor even Nog's in his declining state. how in the heck is he going to give Machida a fight?

It's all moot, anyway. He's not gonna get past Vera.

I like randy couture but i dont get the whole "want" from fans to see him fight on main events..a 46 year old man on the decline of his career. I think randys "master gameplans" have always been overrated. I see machida stuffing most of randys attempts and dont htink he'll get far with his dirty boxing. If he gets machida to the ground..whats he going to do from there? I see it like couture vs nog 2 except very more lopsided.
