I think Rich is the dominant MW in mma right now but Anderson has a great chance to win and this is why. Rich has a suspect chin but he has great recovery time. He will get caught by anderson the question is going to be will anderson be able to finish him before he recovers. In just about all of Rich's fights he gets rocked at least once. His complete game is what allows him to weather that storm and get back on track. Part of his game plan is to weather the storm when it comes and win in dominating fashion. I think he has improved his all around game we just havn't seen it because for the most part he has fought primarily one dimensional fighters. Silva anderson is also primarily a one dimensional fighter. His stand-up is second to none but he hasn't been on the ground a lot. I see Rich getting caught, silva getting over anxious and Rich catching him in a sub sometime in the third round.
