Rampage must fight two times to claim the title. The recent fight with Dana White won’t get him the title immediately. I’m guessing he’ll have to defeat Rashad Evans to earn the title of top contender. I think he’ll be fighting for an official title fight during the final month of the year 2010. He beats the two competitors who are ahead of him. Rampage is my top man to win and could bring nightmares for anyone in the light heavyweight division. Antonio Rogelio Nogueira, a new UFC fighter UFC may be a newcomer to MMA. However, this former Pride champion proved his worth to defeat Luiz Arthur Cane at UFC 106 and appears currently in the middle of about with his counterpart, the light heavyweight champion Brandon Vera.
Antonio Rogelio Nogueira sent shockwaves across his light heavyweight class. It was his first win over Cane, who was thought to be one of his top 3 boxers at 205-205. I’d like to see him win revenge for the defeat he sustained against Shogun during his Pride times, and there is a chance that he’ll be just two victories away from getting the crown. Also, Brandon Vera, my second choice as a title contender, and the circumstances surrounding his “loss” in the fight against Couture were a bit odd. Vera has beaten two other heavyweights, including Krzysztof Lodzinski. Vera scored significant victories during the UFC against a former heavyweight champion. Vera is a professional with two skills that distinguish him from his competitors: his Muay Thai is on a different level. At the same time, the sport Greco Roman Wrestling provides an ideal base to complement his ability at Muay Thai. Vera is currently at 205, and Vera might be formidable.
In the heavyweight division, there are a lot of contenders in the heavyweight. There are anywhere from the four-five title candidates. First, Frank Mir beat Lesner using an ointment lock. This was, however, during Lesner’s debut. There’s a legend about Mama Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, who seems to be back to his former glory after his injury. Nogueira could exert pressure on Lesner because of his BJJ ability and his Black Belt in Judo. It could give him a new challenge. Cain Velasquez has six victories in the UFC and has never lost. Cain will face Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC 110 and decide who will be the next contender to be the top. Junior dos Santos is four and has a win in the UFC.
UFC, Dos Santos has caught the world’s attention with striking impressively against Fabricio Werdum and Stefan Struve, both by massive knockouts. Then the TKO victory over Mirko Cro Cop Filipodia? In UFC 103. dos Santos fights Dutch Gilbert Yves at UFC 108 with a win. It would place Dos Santos in the second category for heavyweights. Division. The last contender could be Shane Carwyn. Carwyn has been a winner three times in the UFC, and his overall record stands at 11 wins without losing. Carwyn is set to fight Lesner in a title fight. However, his argument might be delayed until June due to injuries or illness. The concept has been put up that Mir may be able to take on Carwyn should Lesner isn’t back fully fit soon.
