If Shogun has the Belt it won't happen. A. Silva won't take the belt of the division that Machida is in. It will only happen if Shogun looses the rematch.

I think Silva would walk straight through Shogun. Silva is like 49-1 in pro muay thay, Shogun would have a hard time chopping him down with kicks, Silva has been in that situation plenty of times. Shogun ate a decent number of punches from Machida. Silva is more technically sound, faster, and hits quite a bit harder then Machida. You dont get to eat a lot of punches from Silva and still remain standing. This would not be a good match up for Shogun. Silva is on another level with his stand up, no one else even comes close. His UFC career has pretty much been a highlight reel of making other people look like amateurs in the stand up game.

What's your take on it if Shogun takes it to the ground?

This is part of why I was even more pissed about the decision. Before they gave it to Machida, I was picturing Randy vs Shogun and Silva vs. Shogun. Both would be awesome fights. Then I saw them fly away for now.

This is an extremely good matchup. At first glance the popular pick is Anderson and why not the guy is on such a tear right now. Anderson hasn't revieved hardly any damage if any since he came over to the UFC so it will be alot like the Machida fight in that regard. Shogun has some serious speed and I think Shogun would be able to land shots on Anderson. Shogun's always had one of the best chins in the game as well, not to mention if Shogun takes it to the ground I definitely think he has the egde there. a 3 rounder doesn't do this fight justice, it needs to be 5.

I think Shogun would absolutely tool Rampage. Rampage hasn't looked good since the Henderson fight. He's become extremely one dimensional, he hasn't used his wrestling since the Hendo fight and in his striking he doesnt seem to box anymore, all he does is load up on that big left hook and the big uppercut, he hasn't been setting up his punches or throwing many combinations hes become very one dimensional and very predictable. Rampage's achilles heel imo is that he doesn't defend at all, doesn't check leg kicks, never worked on thai clinch defense after he got destroyed by Wanderlei there in the first fight or the second, and when he covers up he leaves alot of spaces where his face is very vulnerable, alot more than any other fighter or boxer ive seen.

A Rashad fight is interesting but the biggest beef I have with Rashad is he's too gunshy. He needs to start letting his hands go more often, it's fine being patient but hes way too patient. He's got good technique,good power, good speed, great footwork and head movement, but as the old saying goes you can't win if you don't throw punches (since Rashad hasn't used his wrestling in awhile). I think Rashad should start throwing more jabs, more kicks, and attempt more takedowns not necessarily to get the fight to the ground but to throw his opponent off balance and keep him guessing. The showboating definitely didn't help in the Machida fight either.

Thats a tought call. Shoguns ground game has looked good when he has used it, so has Silvas. I think they would probably cancel each other out.

I'd love to see Shogun matched up against Jon Jones or Luis Cane at this point.

Even though both those fighters are still pretty green in the UFC, I would enjoy watching them vs Shogun over the more established LHW's.

It's a difficult one for the UFC to figure out. If they rematch right away, that solves a few short term problems. But, both of them will need competitive opponents afterwards. Where are they going to find 2 LHW's who deserve a shot at these two?

I'm hoping Bones will indeed evolve into the monster we're all hoping he can be.

It would be a huge draw for sure. But the fight itself? Anderson kicks Shogun's ass. Hard. Just like he kicks everyone elses.
