Wasn't he "not ready yet" just a few weeks ago? I guess he saw some openings to which he could capitalize on with his speed...

Yeah this fight would at least be a challenge to Anderson. I say make it happen still, and this time don't feed one dimensional guys as replacement if he gets injured.

I don't care for either match up TBH. Silva is gonna KO both of them. Vitor has a much better chance than Chael though.

I rather see Vitor if Dana is not willing to make a super fight. Hell after Vitor I want to see anderson beat the living sh** out of Chael after.

You know that Vitor is one dimensional right and Anderson is like GSP and Maia combined compared to Vitor on the ground. If you want someone who isn't one dimensional you have to go further down the ranks to guys like Akiyama and Wandy. Really I would rather see whoever wins that fight get a title shot they are just as deserving as Chael and have better overall skills than him.

Akiyama is yet another overrated japanese fighter who could barely make it past his UFC debut without being gifted a decision by the judges. His only accomplishment besides beating a bunch of cans in Japan is subbing a kickboxer. He doesn't belong in the cage with Sonnen or Marquardt let alone Anderson.

And Wanderlei is so far over the hill and so wild, a Wand-Anderson fight would be a joke. Dude is 2-5 in his last 7 fights and you think he's going to beat arguably the best fighter on the planet?

At least Vitor just knocked out two top 5 MWs in the world for his last two fights ... what exactly has Wanderlei or Akiyama done to convince you they're anywhere near the same league? Wanderlei just lost to the guy that Vitor just KOd in less than a minute and Akiyama is only given so much importance because of his Rob Emerson style running joke ... the dude is not a top 15 MW. Don't get me wrong, he's good but not an elite.

Vitor may be one-dimensional, but he poses a big threat to anyone in that dimension, even Anderson. Unlike Maia's dimension, the fight actually starts in his. It doesn't matter what Anderson is on the ground because he hasn't taken anyone down in his life and he ain't starting now... this will be a standup war and Vitor has the kind of speed to knock Anderson's fat head 10 times if he dares to stick out like he did against Maia. Anderson may be more technical, but no one has faster hands than the phenom.

Show me where I said either of them would beat Andy. Akiyama would beat the shit out of Sonnen by the way that is absurd Sonnen has no standup skills or submission defense he isn't a top 30 MW. Andy took down Nate and finished him so it has happened before and if Vitor started besting him he would do the same in this fight. I didn't say I didn't want to see Vitor/Andy either just that he isn't some elite all around fighter he is a really good puncher that is all.
