Excited about an upcoming fight? Want to make predictions, or just give people a heads-up that there are some fights on? We can do it here.

(Also a good place to complain, dicuss, and agrue about the outcomes)

Has to, IMO, if he's a real champion. Sonnen now knows it takes more than wrestling to beat him. After having complete ground control over a guy for 4 and 1/2 rds.... took one punch for him to get a submission hold. Sonnen cant count on the fight unfolding the same way the next time. Silva knows it only takes one good punch. Sonnen needs to do much more damage the next fight.

Isn't Vitor already guaranteed the next shot at Silva? The UFC seems to like to get the #1 contender ready to go and close the door on some potentially good rematches.

At this point I think GSP and Shogun are much more dominant in their weight classes then Silva. Silva isn't even a top 5 PFP now IMO. Fedor, Shogun, GSP, Bones Jones, and an in shape Penn would top the list.
Shogun more dominant?!? LOL...okaaaaay.

Fedor? Come on. Have you never seen a Fedor fight? He's done exactly what Silva did on a handful of occasions. Except for in his last fight, when he tapped right away. Let's not forget that Silva WON the damn fight.

The P4P discussion is him and GSP. Nobody else.

Man, I'm still shocked Chael lost.

Sonnen's face may have looked worse, but there is no way in hell his body feels like andersons does. Anderson will feel it alot more.

Silva is no way involved in that discussion after been beaten badly for that many rounds in a row like that. You could say it's GSP and nobody else, but I honestly think right now Bones Jones is that guy. It's just a matter of time before he proves it. I think GSP could move up to 185 and do the same thing to Silva that Connen did and probably stop it with a submission.

Don't forget Shogun won the pride grand prix beating HW's in the process. He has had some injury issues, but now that he is back at full strength I don't see him losing for some time, much less being man handled for 4-5 rounds like Silva wa.

Also what a bitch of an excuse Silva laid out there at the end for getting his ass kicked. He said he had a broken rib or some bullshit.

Eh, that's the Brazilian ground game, eat some punishment and wait that opening. It just took 4.5 rounds for that opening, he'd been working for it the whole fight though. I was impressed by Sonnen, he kept throwing enough on the ground to keep the ref from standing them up the whole fight, he just chipped away at him, but it wasn't enough.

I don't think there is much doubt now that GSP would lay waste to Silva.

I hope that's the case, but GSP isn't exactly a knockout artist. I hope he can finish him once he gets him down. I also hope that fight takes place "soon."

Yeah, I was enjoying that fight a great deal, until the that 2 1/2 minutes of the fight. :-)A decent bunch of fights though.

That's twice now that Silva has been shown to really have a problem with Wrestlers. Hendo did a similar thing to him first round but got caught in the second. Sonnon was winning 8-10 rounds with it. Anderson doesn't do well off his back at all. GSP would put him there faster and easier than Sonnon did, and Sonnon had no problems doing it.

Finally something we agree upon. It's either 50-45 GSP or Silva Taps.


Anybody else as impressed with Bones Jones as I am? I think he might be the GSP of the LW division for years to come.

I hope that fight takes place in the foreseeable future and Silva gets his ass handed to him.
