No. 1 contender fight?! Too soon...way too soon.
He needs at least 3 fights to get back to a title shot if the other LHWs don't suffer any major injuries.
There are a lot of fighters ahead of him in thhe title shot rankings atm. Not overall rankings - just title shot rankings (i know it sounds strange).
Imo those fighters would be: Rashad, Hamill, Rampage, Griffin, Davis, even Bonnar.
My no.1 choice: Shogun vs Franklin.
My no.2 choice: Shogun vs Bonnar.
My no.3 choice: Shogun vs Vera.
My no.4 choice: Shogun vs Diabate.
Limba?... dude... Bonnar?? How is Bonnar even relevant these days?
Hamill got tooled by Franklin, and JBJ... now if he beats Rampage, ok... I might agree that he's back in the picture.
Vera???!!?! Brandon Vera?? no no no...
Griffin? YES! he just beat Franklin.
So it's gotta be Rashad, Rampage, or Griffin. Shogun and Machida at Tier 2...assuming Machida can beat Couture.
just my opinion, of course.
