    Rampage next fight?

    If Lidell would of beat Jardine, I don't think I'd be asking, but this division is pretty thick with good fighters. Who do you think it will be and why?

    I would like to see what Alexander can do. I think it might be Silva just because its Wanderlai but Alexander has been nasty since he got to UFC and has just been beating the crap out of guys.

    Liddell ruined alot of Dana's plans...I think it is going to be Silva as well as that would be a huge pay per view, especially with Randy being out for a while. Not sure who is going to want to face Alexander that guy is a beast!

    It would be a huge PPV, and I think it will happen. You just have to wonder if they will give Silva a easier matchup right away since all these other guys from Pride have been falling on there face lately.

    I like Rampage but if he fights Alexander, I don't know, mixed emotions.

    Dana has been saying with all of the competition out there no more "easy" matchups..which is good, they are getting paid good money earn your keep. I think he learned from the Cro Cop disaster

    Silva is "rumored" to be on the UFC 79 card in December (Vegas), and I doubt it will be against Rampage since they said he is done for the year. Silva could possibly be fighting someone above in the poll and winner gets Rampage in February.

    I don't see Rampage fighting againt his year, either. He had two huge fights this year, and he hurt his hand(s) in his last fight. It sounds like he needs some time off to heal.

    A great fight would be Silva vs. Alexander - some bombs going off in that one for sure

    I think 'Page will be fighting The Dean. Look for Dana White to capitalize on Jardine's recent upset over Liddell. I think they may give Wanderlei a tomato can or two in UFC so they can build up his image a little bit to the American crowds.
