I gotta disagree with you Arlovski Fan, I don't think Evans would be a good match up despite his great wrestling skills. Like you said Anderson is just a faster, stronger, more aggressive version of Lyoto and look at what Lyoto was able to do to Evans.

It defantly would be a good wrestler that would beat Anderson (Dan Henderson being the closest to beating him thus far. In my opinion Jon Jones after a few top level fighters, maybe Bader but he would have to improve his standup. Or Okami (wrong weight class I know)

I'd think someone from Greg Jackson's camp. He has sick gameplans and his fighters tend to listen to him more than most.

Rashad or Jardine. Probably Rashad.

Rampage. That's a fight I would love to see.

Same guy who I think is the only guy in the div that can beat Machida - Jon Jones.

Kid has some serious Greco, never seen anything like it. If he can get up close to Silva with his unorthodox striking, him and his ridiculous flips and slams will definitely be able to put Silva in his only somewhat weaker spot - on the ground. And Jones has shown some sick ground skills himself, so it'll be interesting. Silva's still the favorite though.

Rampage, Gegard if he came in (tactical/rangy/solid BJJ), Vitor (rapid fire punches/BJJ), Randy Couture (grinder/game plan), everyone forgot one fighter who had huge potential; Goran Reljic (185).

Out of everyone most definitely want to see Rampage. He poses one of the most serious threats cuz of his KO ability in both hands and more importantly his improbable pain tolerance and chin of steel. Took "The Axe Murderer" 17 knees to the head to TKO him in the first fight.

Sadly it might be a fight like Homer Simpson vs Drederick Tatum. Where "The Spider" busts combinations all night long.

I'd be freaking out if Rampage gets KOed in the first round by Silva though.

Can't believe he only has three fights left. They gotta bring back the SUPER FIGHTS or at least exhibition matches.

after seeing jones against obrien i think he is quite a few matches away from even coming close to competing with either LM or AS.

and after watching AS against forrest, i honestly do not think there is anyone that stands a good chance at beating him even llyoto. of course there is always that chance of getting KO, but i do not think anyone has a good chance of beating him.

some reason i would like to see him fight cro cop......hoping the cro cop of old would be back. i think that would be an entertaining fight.

and i am one of few that actually want to see him rematch hendo.

At 205? I'd say Dan Henderson.

I think Rampage and obviously Machida would be a threat. I choose Rampage because i would say he has probably got the best stand up boxing skills in the division. He got murdered by Forrests leg kicks, but hopefully he would of learned from that. What Anderson needs is an opponnent who possesses that KO power Rampage has, combined with his wrestling and the fact that there is no way Rampage would feel intimidated by Silva.

Silva vs Machida would be just like the neo vs smith fight(s). It has to happen one day.

No one right now, but there are a couple up and comers that, with some experience, can pose a real threat. For example: Jon Jones.
