Rashad actually has a real shot at beating Silva so I'll be pulling for him on Saturday night against Nog. Nothing against Nog of course but that match up would make bank for the UFC.

Top 7 Favorite Fighters at the moment

1. Forrest Griffin
2. Clay Guida
3. Shane Carwin
4. Jon Fitch
5. Chuck Liddell
6. Wanderlei Silva
7. Chris Leben

Great but.. out of these two undeserving opponents, which one deserves it most?

We'll just see how Dana feels after 156 to get an accurate decision.

lol.

Atleast Rashad is a big name guy, which is exactly what Anderson has been calling for.

I'd rather see Evans get the nod and Weidman take another fight in the interim. I believe Weidman is the real deal, but there's no need to rush him along.

I echo these sentiments, the UFC should respect Anderson's wishes. If Weidman is really that good then he'll beat Vitor or Lombard/Okami winner without much trouble.

This is how I feel. Evans has put his work in already, and has been screwed over big time in the past. Plus I think he will do well at 185lbs. Chris is young still and has allot to prove IMO.

Rashad and give Weidman Vitor, if Weidman beats Vitor he deserves a shot at the title, if Vitor wins, let him fight Lombard or something for the title shot, but if Vitor wins there's still doubts he'll get the title shot lol it's hard to sell a fight against a guy who has a legendary highlight reel knockout on him, just very little credibility in that match up unless Vitor really shows he's improved his ability of not getting completely embarrassed.

I dont get where people justify "rashad is just as good a wrestler as chael". He has done NOTHING to deserve that reference. He couldnt get jones down, he couldnt get machida down either. Cant remember if he got rampage down either. His MMA wrestling really isnt THAT good. Atleast not good enough to be compared to a chael sonnen or GSP. Not even close.

And either way, rashad doesn't have the mental toughness to beat silva. He "knew" he could beat jones, yet he stood with im for 5 rounds and got completely dismantled. He stood with chuck and even though he did get the KO, he shouldve taken it to the ground. Stood with machida, got knocked out. Stood with rampage, almost got knocked out. He had success against mid tier/over the hill opponents striking and now he thinks he is a top tier striker but hes not. He will try and stand with silva and get knocked out, got 18 mil credits to bet on it too.

Bendo | Aldo | Cerrone | Vitor | Fedor | Cormier
