For GSP/Alves I'd have to put Silva Leites in the backseat as the co-mainevent.

Thales Leites??? Why? Why don't Anderson just forfeit the MW title and move up to Lightheavyweight full-time already?

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

Oh my lord, I almost fell asleep reading the TITLE of this thread, which is really to bad, because anderson probably one of the most exciting fighters to watch in the history of the sport.

I hope that there is a good undercard on this one, that's all I really need to say.

This more or less confirms my feeling that Silva is the most mishandled fighter in the history of MMA. Look, Floyd Mayweather, another P4P best, was a boring fighter, but when pit against De la Hoya generated a huge ppv draw. Silva is an EXCITING fighter. Get the guy in against any of the top light heavyweights and you have a thrilling fight. Make a light heavyweight drop down to middle. Do anything except put him in against a largely unrecognized Brazilian dude.

Dana, you manipulative bastard: What's the deal?

I really like this fight. I think Leites stands a good chance, since he's better on the ground and can take a good punch. He doesn't mind taking a shot to get someone down. I don't know why many are moaning about this fight. Leites deserves it.
