Filho would dominate Silva. He is super strong with wicked take downs. He is a really bad match up for Silva. Him Versus Franklin would be a good fight, I still think Filho would take it though. I would love to see Anderson Silva fight Denis Kang. That would be a good slugfest. I would go with Kang though.

Cote and Leben was a sloppy strikefest.

He beat Swick years ago, today it would be different.

Lucky close his eyes swing for the fences shot with Rivera.

Santiago?...HAHA, please.

His fight with Dewees was impressive because he submitted him, so 1 fight, whoa.

Yeah, he's a can.

And I love American fighters, I just like to expose Leben for what he really is.

Na man none of those guys really stand a chance but if it came down to it Swick or Leben for sure. They would still get beat though because Rich and Silva are in a league of their own.

I voted the loser of The Ultimate Fighter 4 Finale. So either Patrick Cote or Travis Lutter. It'd be a good tune up and comeback match for Rich Franklin after being destroyed and decimated by Anderson Silvia. It'd also give him some confidence especially if he won by KO.


My Favourite Fighters
Ken Shamrock
Vitor Belfort
Fedor Emelianenko
Georges St. Pierre
Wanderlei Silva
Rich Franklin
Mark Kerr
Chuck Liddell
Robbie Lawler
B.J. Penn
Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic
Mauricio "Shogun" Rua
Chris Leben
Nick Diaz

yeah thats kinda what i was thinking, especially if rich is ready by feb. rich could fight the loser of the finale on the undercard of silva and the winner. it would be a good build up to the re-match to have them on the same card

I think you meant to say

Anderson Silva is a in a league of his own. He obviously outclassed Rich "Deuce" Franklin and will every time they fight. I think Rich finally realized that being the best in the UFC, doesn't mean hes worldclass. Silva is a world class fighter, he has fought in Pride (Which he was only a decent fighter, not completly dominant fighter like in UFC), and started in International Vale Tudo (Brazillian BareKnuckled fighting) That toughs you up more than any other kind of training can.

I cant wait for the rematch!

Other matches I want to see

Anderson Silva vs Matt Hughes
-To show everyone that Matt Hughes isnt world class either!
Anderson Silva vs Chuck Liddell
-Chuck is the best person for the job against Silva in the UFC Id still take Silva by KO in the 2nd found!
Anderson Silva vs Tim Sylvia
Just so Silva can have all the UFC belts that matter!

He is the most dominant fighter in the UFC today.

anderson silva is one of the only pure strikers in the ufc. all of them are sloppy just about. i dont understand what your problem is with leben. because he talks trash?? because he is sloppy?? so are most of the fighters in the ufc. thats why rich lost. he seemed like a great striker, but he is just bigger, stronger, and a better than the other guys they put in front of him. he throws looping punchs. if you watch the fight with rich and silva watch how silva just deflects richs punchs away. 95% of the fighters in the ufc are sloppy strikers.

i think the only really good fight for the UFC would be Leben vs Franklin.Its a big marketing fight, and Swick is going to be fighting Silva next I belive so hes not fighting Rich, therfore to get Rich back on track and to sell ppv's Leben will be the choice




Mancrushes
1.Shogun
2.BJ
3.Fedor
4.Kos
5.GSP
