    How have Rampage and Vitor never been matched up and why is it a fight I must admit I've never seen as a possibility on the forums? With their styles and even with Rampages seeming lack of interest in fighting now I've always felt this would have to be an exciting battle. They have a few common opponents and it just seems strange to me that they never crossed paths.

    I'd also really like to see Shogun v. Belfort.

    Yeah true, another one that probably should have been made in Pride. Seems strange that draw cards like these haven't been matched up.
    Even Rampage or Shogun v Couture would have been good to see.

    Shogun and Rampage should fight now although its 5 years too late.

    Only problem with this fight now is that I'd hate to see Rampage destroy a worn out Shogun the way he did the worn out Wanderlei. Seems like a cheap way to even the score. I know Shogun still has a chance but dam he's taken some punishment in the last few years.

    Belfort vs. Rampage? Awesome!
    Belfort vs. Wanderlei? That still needs to happen!
    The same goes for W. Silva vs. Rampage IV, possibly as Wanderlei's final fight.
    While I am at it, Shogun vs. Couture a few years back would have been pretty cool.
    Shut up and take my money!

    I'd like to think so to be honest but if he comes in with shot knees I think Rampage may actually have the better hands and both have solid chins still but Shogun is just taking to many shots lately.
