    These guys were scheduled to fight anyways. So why not right?

    Jones vs Gus/Rumble
    DC/Shad
    Shogun/Rampage 2

    On the same card just for the drama. Would be a monster LHW card imo. Good timing too

    it would eliminate 2 contenders in a relatively thin division. they've both lost to Jones too so it would be hard to book it as a higher profile, #1 contender fight, which it deserves to be but Jones beat Evans handily and beat DC recently.

    its faily likely that the Gus/Rumble loser gets an easy #1 contenders fight to ensure that Jones next fight in Fall 2017 will not be a rematch against Rashad/DC.

  5. Totally. Jones will likely fight those two in a row, whether or not he wins the first one.

    As for the OP - Dude, no more Shogun fights! Its over. He was awesome, now he needs to live is life and not get hurt anymore.

    I would like to see Shad get in a fight with a B level fighter since he was scheduled to fight Glover. Don't need him gathering rust for an extra 6 months before fighting DC.
    Otherwise those 3 fights on same card would be very cool for me.

    Its good competetive big name fights man. Who wants to see DC fight the Hendo's or cummings of the world?

    I dont see Rashad in the title picture. Not yet. A win over DC would put him on that level.

    The only thing worse than eliminating contenders through actual competition, is building a queue to feed a champ.

    Besides, this is the UFC. At worst, they give you an easy win and you get your next title shot. And that's if they don't grant you one, just because.

    Definitely interested in Shogun Rampage 2. I think it might go the same way as Rampgae Silva 3

    No interest in it to be honest, feed Lil Nog or Bader to Cormier.

    Lets hope that Rampage has mercy this time and doesnt drop 3 extra punches on shoguns lifeless body. He hated wand though.

    Lil nog vs Bader was the dullest fight ever. And lil nog won in my book.

    Lil nog vs cormier? !?!?! NO

    Still don't want to see this fight.

    Both Shad and DC should be given guys like Bader or Little Nog to build them up for eventual rematches.

    Rashad isnt a contender.

    Well you can't give him someone below their level and the UFC won't want to knock of several contenders for one guy who's already lost to the champ.

    Rashad needs to fight a top contender. Dudes been on the shelf for the longest.
    His career is pretty much over anyway
