    Two fights I want to see


    John Jones vs. Anderson Silva - probably won't happen cuz of weight
    NEW BJ Penn vs. GSP - I think it could actually be different now that BJ is serious.

    Rampage is on hiatus because of his movie role in the Summer Blockbuster the A-Team.

    I personally think the ultimate fight would be GSP vs Silva. It would be a showdown of what I believe to be the most skilled fighters. In the end Silva still wins in my mind though...the guy is just that damn good.

    On another note...I would love to see a real hard hitting heavyweight showdown...Brock vs Fedor (most likely will never happen...Fedor ducked Brock IMO, but even so I still could not call the fight either way) or Brock vs Bobby Lashley (Brock would most likely win this one, but I still think it would be a fun fight to watch with both men being former wrestlers and both being incredibly strong and powerful). I want to see a heavyweight fight where there is no real advantage power/strength wise.


    Cheers!

    BJPenn and GSP have already fought twice now. The second match was suppose to be when he was serious or wqhat ever you call it. really dont think it needs to be seen a 3rd time.

    The weight difference, if any, is negligible. Andy has fought at LHW twice and Forrest is far from a small LHW.

    It's bad business to have two young, talented prospects face each other at this point. Jones vs Thiago Silva makes a lot of sense, but Bader is an interesting challenge. I'd like to see him against either Couture or Franklin, but those 2 have fights tentatively scheduled.

    As an avid GSP fan, I have no interest in seeing BJ/GSP III, as the last defeat was so definitive there is no point. BJ was absolutely crushed, and Marv Marinovich or not, he will never be able to match GSP's athleticism even if they are equal in skill sets. GSP not only outwrestled BJ, but largely outstruck him on the feet as well. I want GSP challenged, and BJ is not it.

    i agree, they wouldn't put the two young guys in at this time...but if they don't have a problem both of them are on a collision course eventually, also interested in seeing the winner of alves and fitch vs hardy...i'm in a thought that in the ufc the creme really rose to the top, bj penn, gsp, and anderson silva are all really good champions, machida might end up the same way....but the fight for the 2nd spot seems like the more intrigueing fights these days rather than the title fights because of this

    Silva vs. GSP = ONE SICK FIGHT but I still think Silva would win too. He's scary good.

    I'm pretty sure Fedor is scared of Brock. Brock will fight anyone and Dana White would make this happen if he could. So my guess is Fedor is the only one keeping this from happening.

    M-1 Global and DW's relationship keep it from happening. DW is very, very disrespectful to many people and he doesn't understand the cultural differences between the US and Russia.

    White is just a prick. If it were not for him we'd probably see Lesnar vs Fedor fight. As far as Fedor being scared, I think not. He always appear so calm and focused in every fight, to him it would just be another fight. IMO

    The champion clause prohibits any champion from fighting in another organization.

    Brock doesn't deserve a shot at Fedor, he is so overrated. He didn't deserve a title shot and his best win was against and overrated Mir. If Mir wasn't being hyped by the UFC he wouldn't be considered top 10. That being said I want to see Fedor vs Brock just so people can watch Fedor put on a clinic. Secondly I want to see Machida vs Anderson Silva.

    Machida vs. silva would be epic.

    For what it's worth look up mirko crocop vs fedor and then look what happened to crocop after coming to UFC.

    Brock is a freak, albeit not my favorite person but a fighting freak nontheless. It would be a good fight and I still think IF Fedor can't submit him somehow, Brock will break his face (I love watching those big guys duke it out).

    This CC that we see is a mere shadow of the great CC that was in PRIDE. Also, MMAmath does not work.

    Yeah but that was prime Crocop, he even said he isn't into it mentally anymore. Not to mention he was considered at the time the best stand up heavyweight and Fedor wanted to beat him at his own game. There is no doubt in my mind that Fedor could have took him to the ground and submitted him instead of going to decision.

    Fedor not fighting Brock is only the result of hard-headed managment on both sides; not anyone being scared.

    Sadly, if this never happens(Fedor fighting the best, not just Brock), history will remember this as a series of events that unfolded only appease the ego's of a few very wealthy people and will be a huge loss to all of us fans and to the sport of mma. It will never go down that Fedor ducked anyone.

    I think Penn vs GSP III would be good, BJ looks amazing these days, I know the down side, but I think it could be different with this new BJ.

    That being said, Silva/GSP is a good one obviously, but I don't see it happening.

    The absolute only way I could drum up any interest in Penn/GSP III is if BJ challenged and beat two or more top contenders. BJ has been given a long leash at 170, and with three straight losses at WW, there is nothing whatsoever to suggest he deserves that fight. And saying he has better conditioning at 155 is obvious: he is 15lbs lighter, on a frame that belongs naturally in the LW class. He is conditioned at 155 precisely because he is at 155, not in spite of that fact. As I said, Marv Marinovich or not, I doubt BJ's capacities to put on enough healthy, athletic mass to compete with GSP in any substantial way, particularly considering GSP is both a better wrestler and striker.

    I am praying for Anderson Silva v Llyota Machida, but I highly doubt that this will happen because they are friends....

    I think gsp has a more than a good chance against silva. He is getting so finely tunned at what he does more so than anybody imo. Anderson is incredible so is gsp that would be by far the ufc's biggest fight. Id bet they make it happen.

    Anyone that was surprised by Shogun's performance against Machida has a very short memory or never saw him in PRIDE, particularly his '05 GP performance where he beat 4 top-10 LHWs. His thrashing of Rampage is one of the worst beatings I've ever seen.

    yeah shogun vs rampage bad news, i also have the dvd of shogun thrashing overeem and if i remember correctly fights heavyweight now (steroid use) that was when he was normal size....i don't think it has ever happened and both are in the twilights of their career, i know wandy dropped a weight class for his last few fights, but what about couture vs wandy
