Rich is my favorite fighter and I think Nate would take him. Nate is head and shoulders better than the first time he fought Silva. I don't see Vitor catching him I think Greg Jackson will come up with a great plan to close the distance rough Vitor up against the cage and either take him down in the second or third and finish him or walk away with a decision. Nate is huge for 185 and ready for another shot at Silva while I don't see him beating Anderson I think he fairs 10 times better then the first time

And while I am not making any excuses for Rich but I don't think he was physically or mentally ready for Vitor. I have never heard rich make excuses but he even said in an interview that he wasn't really 100% for that fight.

Chances make Champion's....Champion's take chances
