I voted for Anderson Silva. He proved that he can fight at Middleweight by destroying Chris Leben. His skills standing and on the ground are phenomenal and he doesn't have to cut more than five pounds for this fight.

Goin with Rich Franklin, i dont know why. Its 50/50 but my gut says Rich

Chris leben stinks. His stand up is horrible. Sure he has a good chin but any good fighter could expose him especially when he comes in with his head up and hands down. I say rich.:thumbsup: but it could go either way. both are great all around fighters...:dunno:

I think Rich will win it but I would not be dissapointed if Anderson pulls an upset!

SlammedSL1 09-01-2006 02:25 PM

Silva has my vote

He picked Leben apart even tho Leben does suck ass

Rich is alright since he's a gifted athlete but Silva will pull out the win here

has everyone forgot that anderson was a chute box fighter. They said he was supposed to be even better then wanderlie. It's not like he just came out of nowhere. No one gives him credit. UFC fans never give fighter's from other organizations credit it seems.

I watch a lot of pride. And they said in a chute box interview that he was chute box's best striker. I call shenanagins on this to. but it was straight from chute box.

well i guess only time will tell. I know the crow is one tough fighter but franklin had 5 rounds to get the fight done and couldn't. he couldn't finish him.
