Black guys usualy have harder heads,Looks like it to,But what idiots like Double leg dont get is that Leben is only 25,And you know this was a wake up for him.It's not like Nat Quarry who is like 34 years old now.Silva is in his prime and the best striker in UFC.

I dont think I would venture out and say that Silva is the best striker in the UFC. However I do think he is extremely under-rated.

I'm shocked!

I didn't pick Silva. I thought Leben would be able to weather the punches and take Silva down. Did he even try a takedown? I don't see Silva as a threat to Franklin. Let's see how he does against an overrated Swick and the "Swickotine"!

So how is Swick over-rated??? He has dominated all but 2 fights. One loss and one decision.

Silva's never been (T)KO'd in 20 fights, which is impressive imo, but that could easily change against a striker like Franklin. Should be an amazing scrap if/when it happens.

Let me say that I'm not just judging Anderson Silva based on his fight with Leben. He should have won his last nine fights, he was DQ'd once on what would have been a No Contest in the UFC, as least as far as I know, and Ryo Chonan got really lucky. (who does a flying scissor heel hook? they never happen in the UFC)

I think he's got a shot at Franklin. At least more than anyone else.

I think Leban was just way to confident in his chin. He was under the impression that he can go toe to toe w/ anyone b/c he has never been knocked out. I think that is why he didn't try to go to the ground when he got rocked the first time, oh well lesson learned

Only guy that was good was Riggs,And everyone beats Riggs.Leben has beaten better fighters then Swick including him awhile back.

Chris came forward trying to trade with Silva,i thought he was going to try and evade some punches and go for a take down but he didn't.Bad move by his coach.
