WEll, last night certainly was a good fight, and I'm sure whoever Silva fights will be good.

You don't know who I am? You must be new.

Silva was a mediocre fighter in PRIDE, and almost even record, too lazy to check right now with all the traffic on MMA sites right now, and he beat an undefeated champ (undefeatd in the UFC) in the FIRST round. 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.
Here is a post I submitte don anothe rlink about Pride/UFC debates:
Hey all - this is my first post, glad to be on board.
Franklin is still a great fighter but Silva is nasty. Franklin is my fav fighter but when I saw Silva dismantle an over rated, over hyped Lieban, I knew Franklin would have a serious challenger. Franklin will be back and improved and Silva/Franklin II will be great - Silva will surely holdonto the belt for this eventual rematch because that division is not so strong but with some good strikers, it only takes one shot. By the way, will Hughes stick to his word and move up now to challenge Silva? Love to see it but I am not sur eif it is a smart move.

I cannot understand why all the debate and discussion about which is better PRIDE or UFC. Some think that Silva coming from PRIDE and beating Franklin must then mean Pride is better. Look at Silva's career, five fights in Pride, two in UFC - both a small portion of his expereince. The reality is just about all of the fighters spent time in the other camp at some point or another including UFC also rans who some how get pop in Pride. I personally just like MMA and I find it hard to watch Pride at times. I don't like the length of the rounds or the fact that fighters have to deal with the annoying ropes. It seems boring to me at times but there is certainly some great talent. I do believe UFC, as a product and organization, is better run and marketed (especially since it is USA grown and not overseas - obviously to an American this would be the case). Zuffa and Dana White have just done a fantatstic job of evolving its product and getting it out to the masses. I believe as a result of this we will see more of the top Pride fighters jumping ship to UFC over time. If either organization was really that great there would not be so much cross over. I am sure the debate will rage on but that's my two cents.

By the way, what ever happened ot Vanderlei Silva fighting Lidell? In the UFC PPV a few months back he came out and challenged Chuck and Dan White said it was going to happen then I have not heard anything. Is it off and if so why? Does anyone know who is slated to fight th ebig New Years Eve PPV?

That Tuf kid grove would get beat like all the other reality losers. I'd like to see tanner make a serious effort at a comeback. I know franklin beat him twice, plus louasuou or whatever his name is, and that tanner is leaving weird rants in his myspace page right now, but if he got his act together and really busted it, I think he is the best middleweight in the ufc.

Mr. Swick could do it. Both great strikers (swick could get lucky)
Possibly franklin in a rematch or maybe even tanner

Mac Danzig and his bird feeder once visited the Virgin Islands. They are now The Islands.
Mac Danzig can kill two fighters with one bird feeder.

One scary dude

Silva turned out to be everything I feared: tough, well-conditioned, and extremely smart in the ring. Rich did well not running at him like Leben did but I couldn't believe the clinch. Shows how strong Silva is! I don't know if Rich could have tried a sweep or foot stomp, anything to get that grip loosened. His nose may never heal after knee - wow!

To be honest I also don't think anything can beat this guy. From what I've seen so far he is very very good. The guys from the show are in for a long day - they won't have a chance. Would like to see Matt Sera get his butt knocked out.

Feel bad for Rich - did anyone see his wife's face - look of terror.

He'll be back though.

I am new to this, but addicted to fighting, just watching that is. Silva is un-real, in the UFC, there isn't too many people i could see picking him apart. Then again Franklin has a huge heart, but who has he really fought he needed to train much harder and maybe drink some more milk, he keeps breaking bones in his fights.

Franklin beat Tanner twice.

Tanner isn't a cakewalk. Then again, Tanner isn't an aggressive striker(Rich's kryptonite).

Dana should be calling Lindland's home.

They already fought and Anderson Silva kicked his ass.
