iirc Fitch didn't sit out not accepting fights for a year just because he knew he would lose "his shot".

In a perfect world, Both Rampage and Lyoto have exciting/dominating performances, Rampage gets the title shot, and Evans gets Machida. LOL.

Best case scenario is that Hamill squeaks out a win and gets the shot then the LHW division should settle itself between Evans Rampage Shogun Machida Forrest and maybe Bader and any Strikeforce crossovers.

I've sat through the entire Gracie Sakuraba fight... can I consider myself a hardcore MMA fan yet?

Machida will either in-and-out Jones and frustrate him to death, or catch a vs Shogun esque beatdown.

Whoever is saying JBJ will stop Rampage is silly. Rampage hasn't been stopped in years, and the last time he has been stopped, it came from soccer kicks against Shogun. I think Rampage has the best shot out of anyone in the LHW division currently to beat JBJ, thats not to say that JBJ doesn't have a chance with his speed/wrestling and reach.

The one thing I do know going into a Rampage/JBJ fight, Rampage will not be stopped.

Life can be so beautifully cruel at times.

I guess this is what you get when you wait around for a title shot because you don't want to hurt your brand.

Rampage/Bones is a lot more interesting to me than Rashad/Bones.

Not sure why Machida is being considered, unless he fights and wins again before then. Rampage gets the shot if he beats Hamill, I've been calling it for a bit now.

I'm not the biggest Rashad fan in the world, in fact I can't stand him, but this is bollocks. I just don't get it? Why can't they just rearrange Jones/Shad and cancel Phil Davis, go back to the original bout that was supposed to take place.

I would rather see Page/Jones from a personal stand point, so I shouldn't really be complaining, but I actually feel a bit sorry for Evans here.

Rashad beats Rampage, yet Rampage is in line for a title shot if he beats Hamill?

WTF is this bullshit?! This ain't right.

It's pretty obvious now to me that Jones ducked Rashad Evans and why would you be so suprised about that?

The trained together and I am sure Jones knows that he would lose today!

There is no other theory here!

Problem is he won't beat him
