Silva should fight the winner of Okami/Vitor next.
Chael should fight the loser of Okami/Vitor or winner of Bisping/Akiyama for a title shot.

JDS gets winner of Brock/Cain obviuosly.
Roy Nelson..who cares? He got exposed for the gatekeeper that he is, let him fight Mir or Nog.

Jon Fitch gets GSP.
Alves should move up to MW and fight John Hathaway, that would be a fun fight.

Bisping/Akiyama winner one win away from a title shot?! NO WAY! None of them deserves it. Palhares/Marquardt both have better chances of getting a shot faster. And thers's Belcher or Maia out there for Bisping/Akiyama.

Nelson is by no means a gatekeeper. He is legit. He just gor beat in the title-shot eliminator by a fighter who destroyed all oh his previous opponents in the UFC and is considered one of the best HWs in the world.

Alves to MW?! Not such a bad idea imo. But not Hathaway. Hathaway is at WW.:)

As far as I'm concerned JDS is the number 2 HW in the world. With wins over the number Werdum(3), Nelson (10) Cro-Cop (11), Gonzaga (15ish), Struve (20ish).

As for Bisping getting a shot, y'know wins over Miller, Akiyama, and Sonnen would make him the clear number 1 contender. Though I don't think he'll get past Chael.

Roy Nelson just lost to a top 5 heavyweights, and people want him up against Carwin? (who is still in the top 5 IMO).

I say put him up against Frank Mir, that would be a solid fight for him (of course if Mir can beat Nog). If not Nog for sure.

I have to agree with Rogan though in that the whole 'fat boy' persona is getting old pretty quickly. Time for him to really put some thought in conditioning, and eating right instead of being a poster boy for fat guys. I can only imagine how devestating he would be with a chin like he has, the ju-jitsu he has, and the one punch power he has being out of shape.

I'm not saying get shredded, but at least stay in a fight for 3 full rounds.

Anyway on to everyone else, Chael did fantastic, but I think immediate rematches go to those who really were robbed in a fight, in this case, Chael wasn't robbed, he just got caught. Regardless of how he "talks" about how he feels about Ju-Jitsu, he has to study it a bit more (and you know he did, seeing that he was doing all the right defense moves).

Did anyone else love his flying summersault in the first round...lol brilliant!!
