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.

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. but it could go either way. both are great all around fighters...

Mac Danzig and his bird feeder once visited the Virgin Islands. They are now The Islands.
Mac Danzig can kill two fighters with one bird feeder.
Superman owns a pair of Mac Danzig bird feeder pajamas.

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.
