My vote is for the Spider. After the narrow escape against (roided up???) Chael Sonnen, I think he has something to prove.

Besides the possibility of a flash KO, I dont see what Vitor has for this. Yes he is talented with good pop, but that will be useless against Anderson.

I doubt we'll ever see GSP/Anderson, especially with Yushin Okami already having the next shot at the MW championship and Chael still lingering in the background.

If Anderson is on his striking game, I don't see GSP getting near him. The reach advantage is substantial. The only problem I see is how damned strong GSP would be at 185 vs Silva having to diet down quite a bit more to get to 185. Silva looked flat against Sonnen. I am wondering if fighting at that weight is getting harder and harder for Silva as he ages.

My money is on Vitor, he's like Chael in the way of he'll charge and bring the fight to Silva vs others just floundering around trying to figure out what to do, Vitor won't be afraid to engage him and Silva showed he doesn't like it when people charge and engage him (i.e. Chael).

a recent interview with DW he did say he was going to get that fight together if they both win their upcoming fights. With that said....DW is known togo back on his word a time or two

-Ive seen every friggen UFC that has ever taken place, ive bought & recorded every UFC since 51, ive even kept track of other organizations such as, Pride, K-1, M1-Global, Strikeforce, IFL, WEC, EliteXC, Affliction, & the lower MMA events such as King of the Cage & Bulldog.
-Ive been a student of Mui Tai & BJJ for years & tried out for season 2 of the Ultimate Fighter, & in my honest opinion,,, what has Vitor done to deserve a title shot???
-I hate it when u have a super talent like Anderson & GSP, & the've cleaned out there divisions & Dana is now just throwing guys infront of them!! Maybe at one point he had a big name, but Vitor came on the scene when he was a kid for christ sakes, juiced out of his mind, was expected to be a superior Ju Jitsu guy & suprized everyone with his hand speed!!
-Not many people have seen any of his recent fights cauz he hasnt had many, & now without the muscles & endurance he had a decade ago, a "Flask TKO" is his only shot & i expect it to be another "no action" type of fight!! They will dance & hold restraint cauz Anderson is a counter-striker & so is Vitor!!!!
-Everytime ive pointed this out it has happened, BUT Dana has gone on the record saying, "He will FIRE Anderson" if he pulls another clown-around fight so it will be interesting to see if he swings first!!!!!!

I want to see anderson/gsp as much as anyone.. but I have a bad feeling one of them is going to lose. Despite that fact, I hope this isn't like a pacquiao-mayweather when it's in every conversation but everyone knows it won't happen. I'd also like to see the spider take out Okami before he fights GSP, then retire.. put a stamp on the division for good. Hopefully, they both win, are uninjured, Dana/Joe are good on setting that match up, and it ends up being he fight of the century.

I also don't think Chael's really lingering at the top. Who knows what'll happen with his legal woes, and despite his success against the top prospects in the division, he'll have to win at least one before another title shot, which would be after Okami and/or GSP have a shot at the title. That being said, I don't know of anyone that doesn't want to see sonnen/silva again.

I'm not wasting my money on this ppv, Silva hasn't been exciting to watch for quite a while.

Hopefully this is a very good fight and Vitor charges, so we don't see Silva dancing around like a monkey again lol.

-You are correct in the "strategy" that Vitor NEEDS to deploy to beat Silva as it was very interesting to see Chael charge him, connect, back him up, & taking him down for 4 rounds in a row!! The problem was Chael couldnt finish him & by round 4 he figured he'd coast to a decision & got caught which DID show that Silva is a good champion!!
-This fight could go either way & i think it will be won by who takes the center octagon & THEN pushes foward, establishes his RANGE, & waits for that opening & lays the other out!! Both can be knocked out by the other, but if no one takes the lead & pushes foward then we will see another 5 round dancing contest!!
((Think of it like Randy Coutures ability to impose his will power!!))

Chael got impatient at a point where he was also very fatigued. He essentially handed Silva his arm. He never should have raised up. I think if he had stayed tight and low in Silva's guard, he would have won a unanimous decision.
I don't know much about Belfort but I don't think he has the same wrestling credentials as Sonnen. He may not be able to enact the same type of game plan.

-Just read an interview with Dana White & he even said that this could be the greatest fight ever OR the worst staring contest in the history of MMA!!!!
-Did u know these two used to be friends & training partners in Brazil & that Vitor pulled out of a fight with Silva before claiming an injury but it was reported his "mind" just wasnt right & he couldnt face his long-time friend!!!!
