Rather than building each fighter up again, and than have them fight each other or fight others.
i am more concerned about Rampage at this point than Shogun. Rampage's legal troubles will likely affect his mind in training and in the fight. Personally i don't think he should be coming back this quick, sense it was only a couple of months ago that people were wondering where his head is at and i have a hard time believeing he would be coming into this fight even in decemeber fully prepared.
The things is I guarantee you neither one of these guys want to fight a can or a decent guy who they should still easily beat. They want to fight only the best, reguardless of their condition, and I got a ton of respect for that. And besides if they put them up against a mid level/up and coming guy(ala Forrest) and they some how lost, everyone would claim that they only won because Rampage or Shogun were not at 100%.
