it wont be griffin either for the same reason as Rashad.

it will be :

1) Sam Hoger
2) Jason Lambert

or some other primer fight for Rampage until fighters like rashad and griffin are rested.

IMHO, Rampage at ufc 67 doesn't make much sense really.

maybe Lindland...

Didn't they also get Lindland? I know Rampage beat him already but it would be a good match for one of those guys to challenge for the LHW champ...Although I don't think Rampage would fight Tito if he wins against Chuck.

if they don't bill Chuck/Rampage as QJ's first UFC fight, that'd look like a big kick in the nuts to me... i mean, they'd be ignoring the history, and the fans!!! QJ doesn't get "gateway" fights... Rashad is a joke and a half, and i think giving Rampage any TUFer would be insulting. he immidietly deserves to be in the title mix!!!

whiskey, racism, money, grease, twinkie's, guns.....yep lol thats about it

fact is that isn't gonna happen.

Liddel is fighting Tito at UFC 66, he is not going to fight Rampage one month later...just, no.

this is why im saying rampage at ufc 67 is pretty useless. they are going to give him a can that he will stomp and we'll be back to square one.

I think they should try and let it play out the way they did with Anderson Silva. Give Rampage someone for his first fight that he'll most likely thrash, then set up an immediate title shot. You can't give him the title fight immediately because there'll be too many people that only follow the UFC, and don't know who he is and what his history/credentials are. At the same time, you don't want to take the risk of him losing, or looking soft in a fight, because you'll lose the huge pay-off with Lidell.

All they would have to do is say he already beat Chuck when they're advertising and no one will question his title shot. I dont think its a good idea to have Rampage/Babalu. If Babalu wins then there would be no one left for Chuck to fight assuming he beats Tito, and I think Babalu would beat Rampage but its a toss up.

They will probably feed Rampage a Bonnar or Jardine type guy. After that they can let him fight Chuck. I want the old Rampage back. The one from before team Chute Boxe broke his spirit. I hope a move to the UFC re-energizes him and he gets back to slamiing the **** out of people.
