Atleast he's not recycling fighters.. And will go up a weight class to take a fight once in a while without needing a year of nutrition and training.

Been wanting this fight like a fatass wants cake! This one is on myfantasy fight list. Now its happening (barring any Ouch, oh ow, oh man my shoulder hurts again, I can't fight Silva like this!) and I'm pretty damn pumped!

I suspect Belfort will stand with Silva since (IMO) he lacks the takedown ability to put Silva on the ground, or the control to keep him there. And since it'll stay standing, I anticipate a Chris Leban esque ending (Ima kill you, Ima kill you, rahhh! BAM BAM BAM, ouch.)

damn.. i fear Anderson Silva may lose this fight..

Vitor is a dangerous fighter..
He is not an "inferior" striker ..

Vitor is extremely dangerous..

I think this matchup is very dangerous for Silva..

This is the fight i think Silva has an extremely high percentage of losing..

I'd hate to see Silva lose his belt and ruin his streak...

I sure hope Silva prepares and trains hard for this fight..
and does not take Vitor lightly..

Vitor can stand in there and take it, but I dont think Anderson can handle what Vitor can give him. If it goes to the ground. Well, I know Anderson is long, but he will still get pounded by Vitor and hard!

i completely agree..
Vitor is essentially the originator of striking in the UFC ...
During UFC's beginning.. he was one of a few fighters who utilized striking as a deadly weapon..

look what he did to W. Silva .. lol
W. Silva blinked and it was over ..

Vitor is a force to be reckoned with !

this fight is very tough, how can any1 think this is easy for AS? vitor has some very heavy and fast hands its very possible he ends up catching AS...i think this is his toughest fight to date

a wrestler wont beat AS, it will either be another elite strifer in vitor or a elite bjj guy with good wrestling to take him down...but a wrestler will never grind out a 25 min UD...just wont happen

LOL completely disagree with this post.

Leben is known as having a granite chin. Silva KO'd him how fast?

He rocked Hendo who has a legendary chin to setup his sub.

Anderson also has a great chin. He has been hit with some hard shots right to the chin and not even blinked. Also I think you're really underestimating Anderson grappling.

Vitor's striking is in a different class than Leben.
Vitor's skill is in a different class than Leben.

Vitor is not going to blindly walk into shots, just to prove how "granite" his chin is. Vitor has common sense, and will only take shots when necessary.

Vitor is a bigger fighter than Henderson. Henderson is a good fighter with a granite chin, but IMO, Vitor has more power, weight, and can do more damage. Just go back and watch a few of Vitor's fights..

It's been a while since Vitor has fought seriously.. so we all tend to forget how dangerous and skilled Vitor really is.

I also think this is A. Silva's most dangerous fight of his career.

Either way.. im stoked.. i can't wait till this fight happens !
