I also think Anderson can go a lot of months holding on to that title. Only 2 fighters come to mind that can defeat him, Rich Franklin and Mike Swick.

Franklin maybe...Swick wouldnt stand a chance against Franklin..

Though I must say the 20 second fight of a Swick/Silva fight would be the most fast paced fight we'd ever see

Franklin didnt look like himself blah blah. Franklin looked like he did in every fight. He always likes to start off mixing strikes, this time he fought a guy that is clearly the better striker, Franklin had a long time (basically since Silva beat Leben) to train for this fight and know what Silva was all about.

And he wouldnt only have to practice muai-thai clinch defense, he'd have to practice every other aspect in MMA...because Silva is more well rounded than him..period.
Silva, is w/o a question in my mind, a better and more well-rounded fighter than Franklin. He proved it tonight. But just because someone gets beat doesn't mean tey would get beat every time. I guarantee you that Silva is not as good on the ground as Dean Lister. They are just handing out black-belts in Jiu Jitsu at the chute boxe academy in Brazil. Wanderlei and Anderson are not black belts in my mind. Shogun is but those others are not. They focus on striking so much there. And they do a great job with it. Anderson is by far the best striker there. And in the MW division of the UFC right now. That is why I say take it to the ground. But that is much easier said then done. Not to mention you need to get in a good position. Silva is good. But his competition in the UFC thus far has not been. Aparently Hughes is going to move up and try and fight Silva now. That is the new rumor. Like to see that one. Hughes would not stand a chance. He thought BJ was a tough match. Wait til he meets a bigger, stronger, longer-lasting version.

Watching silva will make some fighters piss on themselves.
The guy is a bad ass. Ritch should have thought about dropping to one knee when the fight started.

Hughes moving up to fight Silva? Crazy talk. TKO within 17 seconds. Hughes in't dumb enough or skilled enough to even think it.

I just wish we would have a united fighting championship so we could wuit arguing about the better organizations and see the best fight the best. I am tired of paying for average PPV's. UFC is all about matching up some boring fights.

Ignorant? Dude most of the UFC fans are all around MMA fans that enjoy every MMA promotion there is (bar the TUF fighters that only watch the TV show). To call them ignorant is something ignorant of it's own.
