    With Jacare out, why not have Rockhold fill in for Jacare? Rockhold originally mentioned fighting Machida in Feb but that didn't workout but the Romero fight would. Machida can fight Jacare in April (he was alraedy scheduled for April anyway).

    Many people wanted to see Rockhold get the title shot, so this would be his chance.

    I like it. Rockhold has been training with Cormier the entire camp, he should be in moderately good shape already. If it happens Rockhold sub rd 3.

    Good switch. Winner of Romero/Rockhold gets a title shot.

    Its kinda stupid to have Machida/Rockhold and with Machida winning he is probably not getting a rematch that soon so you just kill contender in Rockhold.

    I see Rockhold winning against Romero much easier than against Machida. He should campaign for that fight.

    Yup, he will have 6 weeks to get ready and like you said, he should be in pretty good shape already.

    That's what I thought was going to happen. Romero/Rockhold & Machida/Jacare would be a lot better IMO, but the original fights aren't bad either. Jacare will be ready next month.

    I agree, and I like the Machida/Jacare fight better also. It's a cool clash of styles. I messaged Rockhold on twitter and said he should take the fight. Hopefully he does, especially since he has slightly over 6 weeks to get ready and said he wanted to fight in Feb anyway.

    Where do Machida and Jacare train nowadays? Not the same camp do they?

    Well I know Machida has been training with the Gracies and at King's MMA some, so they should have enough different places to go to avoid each other. Jacare is at Black House still right?
