just watched the fight replay, this fight was insanely intense, most of it might have happened in the fighter's mind rather than the feet or hands, but it was extremely impressive, the intensity.

I don't see anyone other than GSP (the agressive GSP of the beginnings but with today's skillset) or sonnen with the tools to beat Silva: confidence, agression, technique on the feet and outstanding TD

Extremely impressive, Silva is on another level. It's great watching him rule MW, but I'd love to see him move up. I'd like to see Stann have a crack at him, but everyone else I think would be a repeat of tonight.

There are MW's who can make it scrappy and put Anderson on his back, but I don't think they pose much danger at all and the more competetive fights interest me more.

Unfortunately Dana is still contemplating Silva vs GSP... yawn.

Silva is ******* scary and just plain evil. Feeling out your opponent, making him comfortable in the first round and then just making him shit his pants in the second with all the intense movements and aggressiveness. Then he knocks him down with a freakin jab, subconsciously telling Okami "Hey, guess how a real punch will feel like". Then he fakes pity and lets his hands down, Okami feels better and gets knocked out.

Would love to see him embarrass GSP like that. If he beats Sonnen again, he needs to get the hell up to LHW.

BTW Bisping seems to think he could do better:
I think bisping would be an entertaining fight for anderson, because he is also fast on his feet. no doubt anderson would win, but i think bisping might last until the 3rd at least and the exchanges would be fun to watch.

I don't think stann would get past round 1 with anderson. i think he's solid, but in a forrest sort of way and i'd expect similar results

fighters I like
145 Jose Aldo
155 Melvin Guillard
170 Carlos Condit
185 Anderson Silva
205 Jon Jones/Machida
265 Alistair Overeem/Frank Mir

The presser wasn't showed in it's entirety last night, a bit unsure why. But check here for highlights and notes

He said that back when it was first announced that Okami was training with Sonnen.
