He's deceivingly strong. The way he threw Rich Franklin around who's definitely a strong dude. I've seen his military workouts. Look at his size he's naturally a LHW I think, but somehow is able to cut to MW.

Now that Machida is out of contention I believe he will venture back there soon enough.

Anderson Silva vs Rampage
Anderson Silva vs JBJ
Anderson Silva vs Title Holder whom we all hope will still be Rua.

This. GSP/Anderson is just another stupid name match-up rather then a stylistic fight match-up like shogun/anderson

I always thought Anderson should fight Shogun After Vitor and then Retire!!! Win or lose. It would be a barn burner, there both great strikers and both pull of crazy submissions. I love this fight.

I agree theres nothing else out there for him to prove after that...it probably wont happen though. Between the loads of money and love of the sport Andy will find a reason to keep fighting till he loses and gets beat back to back..

lolwut? Facing another striker?

Shogun is the last guy Anderson would run away from. It's guys like Jones and Bader who would sit on his chest and hold him there.

Agreed on the whole thing. Partly because I am on Shogun's nuts but who isn't? Before machida fight everybody voted that A.silva would beat Shogun with ease, after he won the belt the vote results were 50/50.

I know Andy will go out a legend, but I want him to leave the UFC with an impeccable record, a record that people can compare to the greats in the future. I want him to stick to his division and do the best he can and retire undefeated in the UFC with the highest number of title defenses.

Outside of perhaps JBJ, Anderson would be a favorite against any fighter 170-205.

Are you kidding? Anderson would be a heavy favorite against any fighter 170-205 at least for the bookmakers. And I'm talking at least -400 here. The one exception might be GSP.
