I really don't understand why Dana White would set up yet another squash match for Silva. Okami on the other hand, is at least intriguing due to his size and strength.

As far as being exciting, I thought Okami did a good job letting his hands go and then knocking out Evan Tanner. Tanner's not a contender, but still, it was a strong, exciting finish.

Okami definitely has some power in those big ol' knees.

Why would Leites be behind the winner of Gouveia/Marquardt?
What about Silva's fight at 205? I really want to see him there.

Leites gets a shot? And some people bitch when some say Bisping deserves a shot. Bisping should be before Leites.

No, Nate started winning until after he threw the illegal knee, we don't know if Nate would of won that fight if he didn't throw the illegal knee.

Bisping beat 2 dudes vs Leites 5. Makes sense to me.

I'm pretty sure even if Bisping was offered to fight Silva he would have turned it down anyway. Didn't Mike say he needs at least two more fights before he's ready to challenge for the belt.

Meh, I dont have too many problems with this.

Obviously I think Okami should be #1 contender by a long shot, but Leites and some others were certainly the next in contention for me..

Do I think Leites will dethrown?? No.

They should make Bisping face Maia or Hendo before giving him a title shot. Winning a decision over Leben doesn't qualify him to be a contender IMO. I wish they would bring Franklin back so he can clean out all the trash in the MW division.

Favorite fighters:
BJ Penn
Nogueira Bros
Anderson Silva
Lyoto Machida
Demian Maia
Andrei Arlovski
