I don't mean to be disrespectful to either fighter, but if Silva fails to beat Leben, he should probably consider retirement. If he wants to continue fighting, all the power to him, I just hope that he can accept gate keeper status.

That being said, I'm still picking Silva to win by either technical knock out or by a decision.

This, is a fight, that you can say with 100% confidence will not be boring. It's either FOTN or KOTN, garaunteed. I like Leben, but come on, it's Wandy. I'm hoping for an Axe Murderer style vicious KO and confetti streaming from the rafters!

Many have gone against Leben before and he proved them wrong.

With that being said...i don't think it's the case this time.

The only problem i have with this fight is Wanderlei coming into this fight after a 16 month absence!!!

In the meantime, Leben fought 3 times.

Wanderlei should have a strength advantage in this fight and he will most likely stalk Leben trying to knock him out - in big fashion.

He just needs to keep his hands up and doen't get involved in a brawl, where anything can happen.

I believe if Wand comes to bang he will get knocked out. He's too battle worn. If he comes out with a smarter game utilize good movement, throw leg kicks for points and to slow Leben down, clinch knees, mix in a few takedowns, he can catch Leben off guard. Leben is like a slow moving golem or zombie for that matter. Especially when he gets tagged hard, he just stops for a second blinks then continues moving forward. It's almost comical and scary at the same time. If I decked someone my hardest and they still came at me I'd be pretty pissed...cuz that would mean my punches are weak...roflz! On to a superman punch, then roundhouse, followed by a flying knee. If that doesn't work then out comes the Louisville...

I'm very curious to see which Wanderlei comes out.

The Wanderlei who fought Bisping or the one who fought against Jardine. Man, that was vintage Axe Murderer.

All Silva needs to do is be patient, he can pick Leben apart. Most of the big fights lately which were meant to be certain KO's have been going to points, but I think this one will end. As already said, Silva can do it handily with the right gameplan.

silva can not brawl with leben, his chin and punching power have become less impressive over the last few years... he does have the skills and technique advantage to get the decision though.

I just seriously hope Silva can win this one. A loss to a fighter at Leben's level is a good sign that you no longer have much to offer any of the top guys.
