    That's ages away. I can't believe Machida still isn't top contender and has to have another fight in months.

    Both men are undefeated, but it really looks like Lyoto is kryptonite to anything Thiago can do.

    Here's how the card looks now:

    UFC 89
    Middleweight bout: Michael Bisping vs. Chris Leben
    Light Heavyweight bout: Lyoto Machida vs Thiago Silva
    Light Heavyweight bout: Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou vs. Luis Cane
    Welterweight bout: Akihiro Gono vs. Dan Hardy
    Heavyweight bout: Shane Carwin vs. Neil Wain
    Welterweight bout: Chris Lytle vs. Paul Taylor

    It's still lacking a title fight :-/ Griffin v Wanderlei thx.

    this card is still not worth watching. Minus whale be a ufc fight night card. Thiago Silva's career is something I have been keeping track of and machida would be a good but still not worth watching.

    Silva looked small as it is I guess he packed on pounds to make this fight. He is someone I really wanna see against GSP

    You would think that while keeping track of his career you would stumble upon what weightclass he fights in.

    I knew I liked you for some reason(besides the tits and ass)
     
  9. bad matchup for Silva, who gets by mroe on his power than technical striking ability (just like sokodjou)

    o'rly?
     
  11. not that both of them can't strike well, but they don't have the kind of skills where they could play distance with Machida and control the footwork. Or strike around his defenses to tag him up.

    It's in England so it might be free to air on Spike. It should be, but no idea if it will be.

    No way will I pay to go see this with the current card as it is.

    Am I the only one to think Michael Bisping is overrated?

    is this your first time to the cage?
     
  23. you and everyone else all say that, leading me to believe he's underrated except in england.

    besides that he LOST to matt hamill and the ufc is throwing him weak fights to build him up.

    Rich franklin kinda comes to mind he beat evan tanner and ken shamrock and people believed the hype till anderson silva smashed his face
