    def a match with Rashad, since Rashad stated that he would prob take a fight, while waiting for Jones, and Machida to play out.

    I say Rua for sporting reasons:



    a) Rashad can't be knocked back for the belt again?!

    b) It was a close fight that Rua could claim to have won.

    Rematches in general can be a little lame, but in this case it's virtually a guarantee that a rematch will be a total war. Let 'em go at it again!

    Coming straight off the fight tonight I would say title shot... but that's just excitement running high and it really is unfair on Rashad.

    Rashad out the picture then it would be Dan for title shot, but I actually don't know who he should fight.





    F**k it, TITLE FIGHT for HENDO

    From an interesting match up point of view, I'd make Dan and Rashad fight the winner of Jones and the Dragon.



    What if the winner of the belt has to wait 60 days to fight again? Not unusual. And some how I think Rashad will stay busy this time.



    Having said that, what I think the UFC will do, is let Hendo fight for the belt next. He's not getting any younger.



    And as I've said almost from the beginning, Jones vs Rashad is one of those fights never quite happen, until maybe 5-7 years down the road...

    i think hendo should have stuck too heavyweight after the fedor fight. it is more of a natural weight for him and cutting too 205 takes away from his gass tank. i think hendo vs valazques with the winner getting a shot at dosantos. WAR HENDO. next ufc heavyweight champ!!!

    Screw Rashad, as much as people may want to see his grudge match with Jones after Hendo's fight tonight how can you not want him to fight for a title?

    s2681043 was this you're first time watching ufc cause you're comments are the dumbest i've ever seen hendo could barely make the heavyweight limit of 205 i think he weighed in at 206 for fedor and he usually weighs in under 205 for his LHW fights anyway i think hendo vs rashad would be great but i would rather watch evans vs jones and hendo rematch rampage in japan

    That actually sounds good even though I'd rather see Shogun vs. Rampage II in Japan(probably not going to happen though based on Shogun's potential condition). Their 1st fight was entertaining. Hendo is legendary, but I don't think he should skip to the front of the line for title shots at 205. I could see it though with one more win over a top contender.

    What do you mean "jump" to the front . He was the title holder in SF, KOd Fedor and just beat the guy that Jones took the belt from. HE IS THE FRONT. There are other people (Rashad) with equal claims to #1 contender status but no one is ahead of him.

    Unfotunately there are not too many fighters with credentials left...

    Light Heavyweight division has only about 5fighters who are anybodies. No one with real status.

    Personally Hendo will get a beating from Jones. Hendo should of knocked out Rua but couldnt. Jones will keep his distance and pick his shots. When he is good and tender he will get taken down for some GnP. Lets not forget what happened to Hendo against Silva. He got punked submitted.....

    I got to go with the winner of Jones and Machita. He's proven his worth by letting go of his StrikeForce Title and beating a top ten guy to earn a shot a the UFC belt. He won a hard fought close WAR with Shogun that won't be soon forgotten. And like Cranestyle said, Hendo aint gettin any younger.

    If Hendo doesn't get the title shot at the Jones-Machida winner, who gets it? I mean if he fights Rua again, the winner will likely fight for the belt while the winner of Evans-Davis will have to wait.
