Gus has it as long as he beats manuwa.

The winner of dc/rashad will probably face davis to decide the next contender.

HW:Barry, Ivanov
MW:Rockhold, Mousasi, Slava
LW:Alvarez, Pettis, Cowboy, Khabib

I think Gus is already confirmed for the next title shot (as long as he wins).

I think the Ufc wants to give Gus the title shot if he wins

However, we have upcoming..

Rashad vs Cormier


Gus vs Manuwa.

Any of these 4 men could be next if they win impressively. Obviously Cormier and Gus have been talked about the most. But if Manuwa or Rashad absolutely destroy their opponents then they could quite easily get a shot.

I think you nailed it on the head with the two fights you mentioned. One of the winners from these two fights will get the next title shot.

If you kill enough of them, they stop fighting.

Yeah, that's what I think as well.

I would prefer Gus if he wins. DC/Jones is compelling, but I want a rematch.

LOL. Troll or retard?

To answer TS: I'd like to see Jon rematch Gus, but IMO Rashad is a tougher opponent than Manuwa. I could see this going either way if they both win their fights, and honestly, don't care who Jon fights next (assuming he gets by Glover), they'll both get a title shot in time.

Favorite fighters: Wandy, Igor, Fedor, Shogun, Ruas, Rutten, Jones
