Event confirmed for the date

Vitor and Anderson have a verbal agreement for the title.

I'd say strength would go to Vitor and the ground could go either way.

The rumor was that he was retiring from MMA at the end of his UFC contract, which i think after the Forrest fight was 4 fights left. So after Vitor he still has 3 more to go.

god. who wants to see machida smoke both of these guys again?

i'd say winner of vera/couture, but that would be another undeserved shot for randy.

with liddell being old, wand dropping, and everyone losing, 205 doesnt seem so stacked anymore. rogerio and anderson wont even fight lyoto... lyoto losing is the best thing that could happen at 205. shogun/anderson or shogun/rognog 2 would be insane.

also, its pretty nuts that houston alexander is back in the UFC, yet they wont sign ricardo arona.

they need to just buyout mousasi's contract.

I still think the division is doing pretty well the problem is anyone that is considered in title contention right now either doesn't deserve it or is taking a hiatus.

Had Rampage fought Rashad and won he would have earned it.

Couture, Vera, Rashad, and Silva haven't really earned it. Both Rashad and Silva were just beat by Machida and they were both dominated. Vera has been very lackluster since dropping down to LHW. He's only beaten a handful of mid-level fighters. Couture is coming off of a loss and a win over Vera doesn't really warrant a title shot.

Since Rampage was locked up with Rashad (and now on hiatus), i believe that's half the reason Shogun got his crack at the title. Plus a Shogun, as you said, sets up the division alot of interesting title fights and an anticipated rematch providing he doesn't just walk through Machida.

An interesting question is, where do Lil Nog and Luis Cane fit into the picture after their fight. Sure Rogerio really shouldn't be in title contention after 1 win but Cane has been on fire. A win over a Nogueira should really catapult him into the mix.

I would say have a 4 man tournament to determine the next #1 contender. Winner of Evans/Silva vs. winner of Couture/Vera. Unfortunately this locks up the LHW belt for awhile but atleast a clear cut #1 contender will emerge. Have the loser of Shogun/Machida fight the winner of Nog/Cane.

i wish theyd do a fucking tournament already! four man would work, two rounds (each fight), winner fights machida. do it at the brazil event since multiple fights a night for one fighter is frowned upon in the US. also huff paint

I would love for the UFC to do a Grand Prix for each of the divisions. The almost all need it now anyway because there is so much confusion with who the #1 contenders are. The exception may be the middleweight division which still has Henderson, Marquardt, and Okami could all challenge for the title right after Vitor and Maia still isn't out of the running either. And now you have Wandy dropping down who could still bounce back and get in the title hunt as well.
