anderson silva would get his balls tied around his neck by Chuck. Anderson is small for 185.

Silva may be small for 185, but he is one of the most accurate and diverse strikers in all of MMA, not to mention, he has never been knocked out. Him vs Liddell would be an excellent stand up war, with power and size going to Liddell and everything else going to Silva. Liddell would be the obvious favorite for his consistency, size, and one punch knockout power, but Silva would definately have a good chance at out striking Liddell...as long as he doesn't get caught.

How is he small? He's over 6ft. Like 6'2" as Franklin is 6'1" and MacDonald was 6'3".

Babalu. Maybe if he'd train harder, drop down a weight class, he wouldn't gas so badly. He would be a different fighter. But he still needs alot of work on his stand-up.

Alessio Sakara in Middle weight. He's a really good fast paced boxer who really shouldn't be moving around his 205 weight. Also along of the people in the 205 weight class can take him down based on a.) he doesn't have much for takedown defense and b.) he's getting out muscled.

My Top 6
BW = Miguel Torres
LW = Tyson Griffin
WW = GSP
MW = Gegard Mousasi
LHW = Lyota Machida
HW = Fedor

I think he may mean small as in mass. Anderson is a slim 185 and his weight pretty much stays around there throughout his training. As far as whether or not it would be a factor in another weight class...I have no idea.

If and when Liddell defeats Rampage... I would definately like to see him move to HW. The HW division has long been a weak division in the UFC (compared to other weightclasses). Dana has recently said that he would also have Liddell move to HW, if he defeats Rampage.

Can you say Liddell vs Crocop? with potential matches agains Arlovski and Couture 4?! Huge...

Okay, I would like to see Anderson Silva go down to Welterweight and take on George St. Pierre. I think that would be an interesting battle.

I like to see Chuck Liddell move up to take on Brandon Vera, AA, Tim Sylvia and Cro Cop. He won't plow threw those guys easily. Well, Maybe Tim Sylvia!

I like to see Diego Sanchez move down to LH division to take on Sherk.

Joe Riggs needs to move back up to the MW division.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam
