I still refuse to buy into either argument that either organization is better, they both have great fighters and horrible fighters. I just hope now that all the PRIDE 'nuthuggers' dont go overboard on the PRIDE is better shit. Me, I like to consider myself an MMA nuthugger because the organization doesn't mean shit and I guess I'm one of the only ones on this forum that understands that concept.

This post was in response to a couple on the last page, I saw when I submitted it that there were like 6 new posts since I started this post. Dont think I'm just ranting for no reason hahaha
couldn't agree more. i love mma altogether. I just wish the USA wasn't so infactuated with protecting our kids from violence and dedicate a channel to the greatest sport of all time (next to football). Maybe I'll start one. Any investment partners interested, preferrably ones with connections.

Anderson Silva vs Chuck Lidell anyone? Silva could easily go tot he 205 weight class by adding a lil more lean mass.

Although I guess that would be really doubtful. The UFC surely doesn't want someone abandoning the belt instantly...Only BJ penn would have the will to do something like that.

Kendall Grove has become a much better fighter since he joined up with Tito and his crew. I would say he may have the best shot at Silva in that group.

The correct answer is probably nobody from the UFC.

I don't think Grove is ready yet so I hope KG gets a shot at Franklin first and if he can get by him, maybe.

Anderson vs. Liddell would be crazy man! I think Silva would have a little trouble making LHW, he make Grove look like Emmanuel Yarborough. I said it earlier, but I think Grove would be better off moving up to LHW, and it would be extremely easy for him to do also. Silva's lankiness and skinniness is a great advantage. It works very well for him, for one its decieving, and two, what makes him stand out is his speed, and bulking up to 205 will only slow him down.

Also BJ didnt abandon the belt, don't believe everything SPIKEtv tells you its ****ing ridiculous how much they lie for ratings.

I agree completely. Although I do believe that Kendal is kind of spoon fed and highly favored for soley for his charisma, charm, personality, and appeal, I have to admit he has all the tools to be a great fighter one day. If he continues to train with Punishment then definately/eventually. But I agree because for some reason Grove just seems like a great matchup for Silva, but only because of their lankiness hahaa. Grove would die in the ring with Silva right now, no question. If Grove could get some Muay Thai training, he would stand a great chance, considering he is 6 inches taller than Silva, he wouldn't have to lift his knee or leg up as high in the clinch to get a good hit. That is where his height is a huge advantage.

Mike Quick is very smart though i think he will learn from rich's loss and have a better game plan for Anderson.

Whats up man SW Ohio in da hizzy!!!! I'm about 15 minutes from your house man, ain't that crazy? Oh by the way you left your bathroom light on, and your dog is too loud.
