forgivemyhonesty Posted July 5, 2011 Report Share Posted July 5, 2011 top LHW (in no particular order) Jon Jones fighting Rampage Rashad Evans fighting Phil Davis Forest Griffin fighting Shogun Who is Lyoto going to fight during this? Lyoto is without a suitable fight for the next few months and he is ready to go now. How can the UFC keep him busy? Chael Sonnen is returning and also needs a credible win to get him back into title contention... but really, Chael's appeal to the UFC isn't as a champion... after all, he's a criminal. Chael's appeal is as someone who makes otherwise meaningless fights meaningful. top MW (in no particular order) Anderson fighting Okami Bisping fighting Miller Marquardt is fired and was MW most popular can anyway... Stan is available, but UFC wouldn't match him with Chael for the same reason they wouldn't match Velasquez and Dos Santos... why knock a money maker to the bottom of the ladder when you can conceivably do title fights with both separately? Munoz is a viable option... but it would be a much MUCH more interesting story to see Chael vs Lyoto. Lyoto needs a fight to stay active so give him a fight with someone who won't disrupt the flow of the rest of the LHW division. give him an interesting fight to hold him over until the other LHWs are available. at the same time, this gives Chael the FASTEST route to the MW title and at the same time builds on an interesting story. You can't give Chael any other LHW like tito or someone like that because it's IRRELEVANT! Lyoto is Andy's bff! if Chael beats Lyoto... INSTANT REVENGE MATCH! FOR THE TITLE! if Lyoto wins then he'll have kept busy and defeated a tough competitor and by this point another LHW should be available for him to continue his road to a title shot. This is an interesting fight... i don't understand why people think it doesn't make sense. it makes perfect sense. it's a grudge match. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
