Sylvia vs. Vera > Franklin vs. Silva

First I wanna say to all my boys on here, it feels good to be back on here posting. I took a little break from MMA and it felt good. After Shogun AND Chuck lost I was pissed and probably overreacted a little bit. But the hiatus from MMA has gotten me refreshed and Im ready to start talkin fights.

And UFC 77 has a great one. I find Sylvia/Vera fascinating. We FINALLY get to see if Vera is for real and we get to see if Tim can get back to his old form of knocking dudes into next week. I can firmly say I have no idea what to expect in this fight. Im rooting for Vera but I dont know if the size will be too much for him. Vera has very underrated wrestling and that could be a factor if Tim's reach poses problems for Brandon. I think this fight is a total toss up. Complete 50/50. I see it going to the judges and Ill take Vera.

As for the Main Event. I just dont see how Franklin wins this fight. Silva is better in every aspect of MMA. Rich's only chance is if he can outwrestle Silva get some ground and pound in. Other than that Silva will beat Rich everywhere. BUT I have been wrong before and that is why I will watch this fight and be on the edge of my seat. Ill take Silva via TKO in the 2nd. Seems like a pretty safe bet.

good to have you back brother

keep in mind tho anderson although as good as he is.....noone anywhere is unbeatble

i can see rich taking this one back....he really has no choice....i mean if he looses again....hes trapped in limbo.....

cant go down in weight and definately cant go up

The most solid advice I can give to anyone who fights BJ Penn is...do not motivate the guy. Lets face it, BJ although talented, is naturally lazy. Your job is to NOT convince him to step on that treadmill.

Of course Rich has a chance, hes a great fighter. But Silva blew him out of the Octogon. I dunno if Rich can ever recover from that.

Well id like to say WELCOME BACK, JDun...your a valid poster on this site.

And yeah, Sylvia Vs Vera definetly intrigues me more than Franklin Vs Silva for 2 reasons.

1) Sylvia Vs Vera is definetly a close fight...I got Sylvia winnin, but wont be suprised if Vera uses his speed to chop the big man down for 3 rounds. Silva Vs Franklin on the other hand I see as another victory for Silva, Franklin needs to come in wit a near perfect gameplan to win this fight.

2) Sylvia Vs Vera also will decide who gets to fight for the vacant HW title bout. Silva beating Franklin will leave the MW division in trouble, especially wit Hendo not wanting to fight at 185...and Okami Vs J-Mac isnt even gonna be televised, which is apparently for the #1 contender spot.

Good to have u back Jdun Honestly I agree with your pick of the Silva vs Franklin fight 100% While anything can happen in a fight I would expect Anderson to win.

Vera vs Sylvia is IMO a win for Sylvia. The guy is So Big and honestly if he comes ready to fight he will KO Sylvia in the 2nd round Vera has never faced anyone with power close to Sylvia's.

that all depends

if silva wins then i could see it being a contender fight....if not i just dont see the point of having jmac or okami fighting ace again.....at least not for a while

My post was under the assumption that Silva wins, IF Franklin wins then obviously they have Silva vs Franklin III...

If Silva wins then the next obvious choice for a mtchup would be Silva Vs Winner of Okami/J-Mac.

IMO the Vera vs Sylvia bout will be one of the most exiting fights this year... . however i agree with the majority in saying that i just dont see Franklin taking this one.
