Fun thread; I'll play.
I'm going to start at the *potential* Shogun vs. Bader fight and go from there.

Shogun vs. Bader - Shogun by TKO/KO in less than two rounds.

Shogun vs. Rampage - Rampage was super slow at this point, but so was Shogun. I don't know if the Shogun who beat Machida still exists, but that guy beats any version of Rampage IMHO so I'm going to take Shogun by decision.

Shogun vs. Machida III PROBABLY wouldn't have happened, at least not since Shogun had beaten Machida in nearly everyone's mind then rematched him and decimated him. With that being said, the next fight would probably have been Shogun vs. Rashad.

Shogun vs. Rashad - Rashad by UD, anything he wants. Jon Jones doesn't exist in this universe so he's still with Greg Jackson and he wouldn't have been sonned by Jones and lost his confidence.

Rashad vs. Machida II - Rashad by decision. I still think Rashad could have won the first fight and would win a rematch in a world without Jones.

This is where it gets interesting. Does Dan Henderson still get hurt in this parallel universe? Does Rashad not accept the Chael fight if so? Let's assume he does accept a Chael fight.

Rashad Evans vs. Chael Sonnen - Rashad via anything he wants.

Now, this eliminates the time off for TUF for Rashad since he'd have already demolished Chael and wouldn't need the PR push that TUF gave Bones, and he DID need it. Dan probably comes back from injury and fights Rashad.

Rashad Evans vs. Dan Henderson - This fight probably goes WAY worse for Hendo than the one in our universe did. Rashad via UD.

In this world, Vitor doesn't get a BS title shot to save a card.

Rashad Evans vs. Alexander Gustaffson - Gustaffson via jabfuck. Rashad doesn't have the stones to beat the Gustaffson that fought Jones IMHO.

Alexander Gustaffson vs Glover Teixera - Gus via being better.

Now, I'm not sure that A: DC works up the beef he has with Bones, with Gus and B: that Machida drops divisions to run away from anyone other than Jones. Therefore...

Alexander Gustaffson vs. Lyoto Machida - This one's tight. This would be our current fight and I think it would be SO fun to watch.

So my question to you guys is: who takes it? I say Gus.

TL;DR?
Shogun > Bader and Rampage
Rashad > Shogun, Machida, Chael, Hendo
Gustaffson > Rashad, Glover and Machida

This stuff is for fun and I'm stating my opinions. So naturally, flame away Shertards.

Glover probably.

Machida could win it back but then lose it by playing too safe & losing a split decision.

Hard to say….I think it would have changed hands a few times. I think right now it would be Gus or Glover

Gus hasnt beaten a single person whom you've mentioned. Why is he favored?

That's the weird thing about opinions...

In my opinion, he'd beat them.

Blow your mind yet?
