Rampage, next title shot?

Now this is all just my thoughts on how the LHW division could pan out. If machida or shogun wins I think rampage could possibly be the next fighting for the belt. Heres why I think that could happen.

A. If machida wins, who's left that actually has a recent win? I know ryan bader,jon jones are up and comers but bader hasn't fought anyone of value IMO and is still fresh. Jon Jones has a fight coming up with matt hamill.

B. Rashad evans/thiago silva aren't fighting for a few months . I think rashad will win but I dont think he should get a rematch with just 1 win. Neither should thiago(2, he beat jardine..who hasn't? chuck liddell).

C. If shogun wins, everyone would love to see shogun/rampage 2.

D. Dana wants his dollars spent on TUF to payoff. I could see him calling up rampage and offering him a nice bit to fight for the belt because rampage would be the biggest draw of anyone in the LHW division. Everyone knows him from TUF and old heads will recognize him from the A- Team movie(if the movie is out/previewed by then..i dont know the time frames of how Hollywood works.)

E. Its obvious rampage is more pissed off at Dana talking shit then actually wanting to quit fighting. He blogs all the time . At first he was done..now its "up in the air". He's not done. If rampage got a call saying he could get a shot at his belt with machida or double the pleasure with revenge against shogun..i think he'd take it.

This is all just wild guesses basically with a little bit of facts of how the LHW division is at the moment. Although I could see Dana giving Randy the shot if he beats Vera. I hope not..randy gets all kinds of favoritism. I think machida /shogun would beat him horribly and Vera even worse if he was to win. Personally, i dont care to see couture fight for belts anymore. Dont think he should get a shot with a 1-2 record either if he wins.

I don't think Page will be back for about a year. And when he does, i'd like it to be to fight Rashad once and for all.

The reason he quit in the first place was not over the 'baby' comment, that came after, instead he said it's so he could spend more time with his kids.

Dana already said that if Couture wins at 105, he'll get the next title shot.

Of course, but is it fair to Thiago/Rashad, Cane/Nogueira, Jones/Hamill? How does Randy just JUMP into the title bout?

Cuz he's old. But I agree.

As for Rampage, hell no. Why should he get a shot? He needs to prove himself. So far he's a Forest, Jardine level fighter, which is good, but not good enough. He needs to beat Rashad before getting a shot.

Yeah, I know. Dana knows putting COuture in there will sell more tickets, etc. But its no biggy to me. Rashad/Thiago arent getting screwed because their fight doesnt happen till like 2-3 events after Couture/Vera. So the winner could easily get the next shot after Couture. And it gives time for all the other guys to keep building themselves up.

I dont see why Dana hugs randys balls so much..he's lost past 2 fights. So if he beats vera ..a guy who has looked mediocre at best in LHW..he gets a shot. I know I know..randys been around before the octagon was even a recognized shape but thats a little too much loyalty. Last person he beat worth a damn was gonzaga.

Rampage was supposed to get a shot but couldnt because of his jaw. He's 2-0 since he lost his belt. Jardine level fighter? Come on..are you serious? Jardines 2-4 in his last 6 bouts while rampages only loss is to forrest since 2005. Although, i do believe he should fight rashad because he did agree to do TUF
