I agree with what you're saying. I don't really like to see a title rematch too quick because then most likely it will be the same scenario all over again. But I really can't see how you would rank Bonnar ahead of Shogun even in your title shot rankings... Bonnar has won Soszynski and Pokrajac and before that suffered losses to Soszynski and Mark Coleman! So I agree with everything you said except the Bonnar part cause that's just crazy talk
Bonnar will never get a title shot imo. I've just thrown that out there. Just a *long shot*...if you want.
But the guy is entertaining to watch. His fights are always
exciting and fun to watch.
Plus, he's never been stopped.
I believe Bonnar vs Shogun would be a fun fight in Brazil.
Limba?... dude... Bonnar?? How is Bonnar even relevant these days?
My *love* for Bonnar has been described in the above sentences.
Hamill got tooled by Franklin, and JBJ... now if he beats Rampage, ok... I might agree that he's back in the picture.
Don't sleep on Matt Hamill.
Yes - he got beat up beadly by Jones. But who wasn't lately?!
And the Franklin loss is 3 years old.
He has shown big improvements after that fight (except Jones of course).
I hate the fact the people don't give him too much credit for his win against Ortiz.
But at the same time, Forrest Griffin's high position in the rankings is a result of a win over Ortiz as well.
But, i have Hamill beating Rampage annyway.
Vera???!!?! Brandon Vera?? no no no...
Griffin? YES! he just beat Franklin.
Why not Vera?! It would be a muay thai classic, a very exciting fight.
And Griffin?! It might happen...it doesn't sound bad at all, but i don't think it's gonna happen. Call it "a feeling".
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.
Well, Rashad is contender no.1.
Griffin, Hamill/Rampage and .... Couture
are contender cathegory 2.
Davis, Shogun and Machida are contender cathegory 3.
My opinion of course...
But, the UFC operates strangely sometimes.
So...i have to go with Shogun vs Franklin!
