I have to disagree; Rampage avenged his losses because Wanderlei is a shadow of his former self. Honestly, I think 'Page is, too, he just hasn't fallen as far as Wandy.

Why?

He'd be 2-1, unless you don't count the first rematch with Wand. Maybe even 2-2, if you count losing the belt to Forrest after TUF. And there's no way a rematch with Shogun would be bigger than the one with Silva, apart from the possible stakes (LHW belt). The grudge factor was huge against Silva.

Belfort is two years younger than Anderson Silva. He hasn't lost in more than three years and has won his last three fights by knockout. I suspect you're right about Sonnen. I wouldn't mind seeing Silva-Okami II.

It would be an intriguing fight.
