UFC 98 Fallout!
1. Who should get Machida next ?
All of a sudden this Light Heavyweight division doesn't seem to have
many serious challengers for Machida's title, does it? But the guy that
should have the first shot at Lyoto's belt is Rampage. He beat
Wanderlei Silva and Keith Jardine; in my book, that earns him the title
shot. Besides, he was supposed to have fought against Rashad Evans in
the first place, so it is only fair.
As for how a Machida vs Rampage fight may unfold, we will leave that to a future UFC preview.
David: Rampage is in line for the next shot- UFC 104 from early reports- but should he? If Forrest beats Anderson- and he could- I think he might be in line before Rampage.
Joao:Not Forrest again! He didn't deserve the title shot against Rampage in the first place, then he lost the belt in his very first defense. Besides, he is not going to beat Anderson Silva, no way.
For the Rest- including Rashad Evans, Tito Ortiz and a Preview of the WW tourney-
