Swick's ground game is way t bad to even pretend like he's a contender for anything. He couldn't even be the fruit loops champ.

The reason why no one is even able to touch rich franklin right now is because yes he's got the skills obviously, but because he's a natural 205. When he's in cage, he practically dwarfs anyone he's fighting. Who was the last person that was close to him in size? Maybe evan tanner but i think he doesn't possess the physical strength that rich has. Which is why i would like to see rich and nate marquardt fight because nate looks like a 205er and is the most well-rounded in the division next to rich franklin. Anderson Silva is good, but not in the same class overall as rich and nate.

i think most of the reason ppl vote for Anderson Silva is b.c of one decent knockout...period, and that everyone thinks Leben is almost ready for a shot. Nate Marquardt has done some fights and deserves a shot first. As mentioned he is more like Richs size also which could make for a good fight. Nate is undervalued IMO. Silva is very good but im not sure about getting a one fight title shot in the UFC.....Unless your first name is Wanderlai, of course.

Leben has the balls to win but i think he is still some distance form the Cardio that you need for a major fight, I agree Silva would be the best candidate so far.

Stefan Struve
Donald Cerrone
Glover Texiera
Cub Swanson
Kim Dong - Hyun.
