Yeah. I still say he should have had to fight a few more times in the UFC before he got a shot.

Yeah, he'd been fighting all over the place for years though, but maybe for the sake of getting the fans familiar with him they should have given silva a few warm up fights. I was watching at the bar and nobody knew who he was. Oh well, the end result would have been the same, with more embarrased fighters trying to fix their rearanged faces .

Maybe he would have at least two rounds worth of octagon time though.

Why do you say compared to pride?
You should look at Silvas record and see how many fights he had in pride.

dude he lost 4 fights in pride he is very beatable.there are a ton of guys in pride that would go for the single leg takedown in the clinch.or greco swim move to break that clinch bodylock would had been the best because a double trip and u possibly get the mount.franklin knew all of this.fight was very fishy to me because of that.to most fans they would think nobody in the world can get out of that clinch.thats bs .... hes awesome just not that awesome in world rankings many wrestlers such as fitch would take him down with ease matt hughs could go up and make him suffer on the ground...

Well i cant figure out why this is now "pride vs UFC" All the UFC fans should be tickled pink. Why?

Because Sliva (one of the best MW in the world) is now a UFC fighter. HE IS A UFC CHAMP. He's not going to go anywhere at all. Even in his post fight interview he called the UFC his home. Thats nothing bud good for us fans. Maybe not so good for the fighters in the MW.

I think it is the start of a trend. You will start to see alot more fighters crossing over. All it takes is money and some endorsements. UFC has money now. There are some really good endorsements coming in. They really need to land a kick ass Beer deal. Budwieser would be idea, coors light would be second choice.

I see Sliva coming to the UFC as a good move by dana. Hell he made a uninteresting weight class the topic of conversation across the nation when MMA is brought up.
