I wouldn't be surprised if Anderson and GSP walk around the same weight. And I'd easily give strength advantage to GSP.
That could be a very good fight.

Probably Okami (if he wins) because:

1) Okami has a DQ win over Silva
2) He has only lost once in the UFC and it was against Franklin (who he almost finished)
3) He is the most established fighter in the current middleweight division (Kendall and Martin were looking good but then they got KO'd)

Swick wants to fight at WW and I'm pretty sure he plans on staying there unless he gets a shot at Leben

GSP would be intersting but I highly doubt Dana would let that happen since he is the #1 contender for the WW belt

I think it's gotta be either Okami vs Macdonald winner or Henderson.

GSP walks around at 185ish and he has said before that he would like to one day move up an challenge for the title. Man that would be sick eh!

Theres no way Cote should be in the running he had a four fight losing streak before his recent two wins, hes 2-4 in the UFC he has a ways to go, KO'ing Grove doesnt put you at number one contender. It's gotta be Quarry,Swick, Okami, or Leban, but most likely Quarry, Okami and McDonald have been both beat by Franklin, and if Franklin loses... well there you go.. I'd like to see McFredries up there though.

This question really highlights how sucky the MW division really is. You have 2 dominant guys way above everyone else, and a massive rift inbetween them.

Franklin can walk through everyone, except Silva. If he loses - what does that make him? Where does he go? Hang out fighting up and comers until they give him a 3rd fight with Anderson? It's such a weird situation.

There isn't a bridge between the two levels.

A Silva vs Okami - that should be the next fight if both those guys win at ufc 77

A Silva vs McFedries - standup war- i would love to see that fight

A Silva vs Kampmann- Kampmann is tough and took some of drew mcfedries best shots- that would be interesting fight

Love to see Henderson vs Silva- biggest MW fight ever that one, Bisping vs silva in england: that would be hostile territory for sure but silva takes it

And last one is Matt Hughes swansong fight- keeps saying he wants anderson- if there was a shortage of contenders (like now) then Matt Hughes would be a good fight in between times

If they weren't training partners or whatever, I would like to see UFC Middleweight Champion, Anderson Silva vs. WEC Middleweight Champion, Paulo Filho. That would be a good fight to see. I don't think a cross over fight between WEC or UFC would happen though. Not this soon in the young history of the WEC anyways.

I'll run down the list real quick of all the names I can think of in the Middleweight division:

Rich Franklin (If Anderson wins, obviously he wouldn't get another shot right away)

Martin Kampmann (Out until sometime in '08. Also needs a big name win in order to be in title contention)

Yushin Okami (Lost to Franklin, but defeated Anderson Silva in another promotion. Could be next in line with a win over Jason MacDonald)

Jason MacDonald (Lost to Franklin. Win against Okami could put him one step closer, but I'm not sure he would be a legit contender with a win over just Okami)

Chris Leben (Decisive win against Terry Martin at the last UFN. Was already torn apart by Anderson Silva. Can they really sell another fight between these two??)

Mike Swick (Was moving up the ranks. Lost to Okami and is now moving down to Welterweight)

Terry Martin (Nice fight with Leben, but gassed out in 3rd and was viciously KO'd. No need for him to step into the Octagon with the man who brutally demolished Leben)

Kendall Grove (Again, moved up the ranks and had some great fights with Alan Belcher and others. Lost to Patrick Cote and lost contention)

Alan Belcher (Rogan has called this guy the future of the Middleweight division, and although I would agree that he is a great fighter and is bound to improve, fact is is that he has two losses to bigger names in the division. He has lost to Okami and was choked out by Kendall Grove. He has an upcoming fight against Kalib Starnes, so if he wins this, it could put him a step closer I guess, but not in direct contention)

Kalib Starnes (Decent UFC career so far. Has a win against Jason Macdonald in another promotion before being on TUF 3. Lost to Okami in his first fight however. Has recently beat Chris Leben and a win over Belcher could put him fairly close to the title. Plus he has that "TUF" advantage that would make him a more marketable challenger)

Dave Terrell (Making his return to the UFC Middleweight division at UFC 78. Has a brutal win over Matt Lindland in his first UFC fight. Only loss is to Evan Tanner in 2005 for the vacant, at the time, Middleweight title. A win over Ed Herman at UFC 78 could throw him into the picture, with that win being his second in a row in the UFC)


Out of all these names, the only ones that stand out to me could be: Kampmann (upon return and one big fight), Okami, Starnes, "possibly" Grove or Belcher, or Terrell.

Also, I don't know if the UFC are really viewing Okami or Macdonald as the next in line. If they were, don't you think their fight would be on the main card instead of the prelim?? How are they going to sell the fight if the challenger wasn't even main card worthy in his last fight??
