rampage is no longer a threat to chuck, the sooner we get this rematch out the way the better. chuck will destroy him and then everyone can shutup about rampage, as for the future it has to be bisping the guy has phenomenal standup and the more he fights in the ufc the better he is going to get.he should have the belt within 2 years if chuck has retired by then.

Rashad is the next big thing unless Vera drops down (which may happen due to Cro Cop's addition to the UFC roster). He's quick, explosive and his striking is improving. Rampage is already a star, but he's not gonna beat Chuck. Same old argument so I won't go into it. I just think it's funny that all the "Tito is gonna beat Chuck" kids have become the "Rampage will do it again" kids.

Definitely Bisping. He's already shown true skills and he even admits himself there's a LOT to work on. Through time I think he'll turn out to be a big star. The TUF fighters have to be given a bit of slack as most had very limited MMA experience. OK it was a fast track affair into the UFC but they had to get into the series in the 1st place so they obviously hold some talent. Jardine is a close 2nd IMO but I suppose I'm a tad biased towards Bisping lol.

I also wish people would STFU about fighters moving down/up weights to be contenders. If the Queen had nuts she'd be the King! If it did happen then there would be room for discussion, otherwise it's pointless.

i think the solid guys at 205 right now are rampage, wilson gouveia(spelling might be wrong), rashad, and keith jardine. still none of them are the next big thing. i do not think we have seen the next big thing at a UFC event yet. if i had to pick one though i would say quinton jackson. i think bisping is overrated. he could be good but he needs at least a few years and he is not a very good wrestler

I agree he could make a good impression at 205 but i reckon he could make 185.

Stefan Struve
Donald Cerrone
Glover Texiera
Cub Swanson

that could be interesting. bisping vs swick would be an exciting match up. i think silva might be to much for him though. franklin and bisping could be good also.

I dunno bisping looks like he walks around at around 220, cutting down to 185 would be pretty hard. I personally like him at 205, and given some more experience, i think people will start to lighten up. It is still early, and i understand if people find he is overrated, but he is the next big thing. Rampage is arleady a star so he shouldnt even count. And rashad i find is boring, maybe if he gets an amazing stand up game ill be impressed, but so far, he is sub par for me. thats my rant.
