Rocha VS Thiago orr Rocha Vs Shields would be an absolutely sick grappling match. WW has their own Damian Maia now in Rocha. Maybe Vitor Vianna if the UFC get's their head out of their a$$ and sign him to WW/MW is a deadly well-rounded MMA sub mater.

If you only pick two:

Anderson Silva
Wanderlei Silva

Both deserve to be showcased in Brazil for what they've done for MMA over the last decade.

I predict Silva will be on this card fighting Okami!

Maia, Belfort, Wanderlei are safe bets also.

Aldo - maybe.

the rest, i don;t know!

Kind of topic, in a Brazil V USA:

Cruz V Nunes
Aldo V Mendes
Charles Olivera V Frankie Edgar
Thiago Alves V Jake Shields
Chael Sonnen V Anderson Silva
Bones V Shogun
Cain V JDS

I have it USA 3 V Brazil 4

If it's Brazil V World, add GSP, Brazil 3 V The World 4

I wonder why Falcao was listed at LHW and Thiago Silva at MW.



Actually it's interesting that they even included Thiago.

My card if I'm Joe Silva:

Anderson Silva v Yushin Okami (MW Championship)
Jose Aldo vs Diego Nunes/Kenny Florian (FW Championship)
Minotauro Nogueira v Mirko Cro Cop
Wanderlei Silva v Vitor Belfort
Royce Gracie v (somebody he can submit)

Demian Maia v Rousimar Palhares
Little Nog v Tito Ortiz (lol)
Carlos Eduardo Rocha v Paulo Thiago
Charles Oliveira v Gleison Tibau
Mario Miranda v Rafael Natal
Fabio Maldonado v Ricardo Arona (if they sign him)
(A bantamweight fight)

I left off JDS because I assume he beats Lesnar. Shogun could fight on this card too if he loses to JBJ.

I think that it's a lock that Royce makes a return and they find him somebody who is virtually guaranteed to be submitted.
