    I dont think hell fight Machida. But id love to see him square off with Rampage. Also would he fight Shogun? They are from the same city right? I dont know how close they are

    If thats true that his manager is bringing up the idea of him going to 205 full time, i think it will be stupid. Theres guys for him to fight, but we wanna see him fight for the title and Machida wont be losing that anytime soon and if he wont fight Machida, there is no point in him moving up. It would be like hes just doing it for fun and not to be the best at 205.

    people dont give Rampage enough credit. He definitely wouldnt charge at anderson with reckless abandon like some people think they should.

    they were, but i dont think they'd have a problem fighting eachother.

    Silva would rape them both, but I guess at this point you just have to throw the highest calibur names at him and let him stack his resume.

    we had a friend bring their dad over last night. the guy had never really seen mma before. He was in awe after watching anderson fight. I find it kind of cool that someone who has no idea what the sport is could tell they just witnessed greatness.

    Silva can clean out the division with out fighting for the title. A. Silva turned on all his former Chute Box teammates so Seeing shogun and wandy fight him is a possibility

    If Anderson moves to 205 permanently does Rich move back down and try to regain the belt?

    I wouldnt mind an okami rematch at all. They both have earned and deserved that fight.

    I'd like to see him fight Vitor. I'd like to see how a fight with him and an awake Vera would go. I dont think Vera has a chance, but i think the fight might be interesting.

    i'd rather see him clean up the 185 leftovers, or even a small HW rather than eliminating good future LHW contenders from contention.

    I've said a long time ago, if Anderson could dominate LHW like he was MW that I'd consider him P4P. However, while his last performance was impressive, it was I'm sure more a freak accident due to Forrest getting his jaw dislocated, and Anderson's win was more making up for his last two lame performances than anything else. But I definitely want to see him move up to LHW.

    How often do you see someone get a dislocated jaw from strikes in the UFC? That's where the "freak" comes in. The "accident" comes from the fact that Anderson wasn't trying to dislocate his jaw.

    As a potshot against DREAM, UFC should hold a Super Hulk tournament of their own where Silva fights Lesnar in a non-title fight.

    If he stays MW he should fight Vitor, Henderson and maybe okami since he lost their first fight by DQ.

    If he goes up to LHW fulltime he should definitely fight Rampage, then i dunno who. I love Vera but if he's gunshy fighting dudes like Reese Andy and Keith Jardine, i can't imagine what he would look like against Anderson.

    Anderson should move up to HW and fight Brock Lesnar, i'd have my money on Silva.
