Anderson Silva vs. Chris Leben

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. Yeah ur right. I think on this one Iím going to just say I hope the fight happens I bet it will be a good one


  2. You can certainly see the difference between a true experienced MMA fighter and an "up and coming" fighter when they are put side by side (think Franklin/Quarry). Leben had his ass handed to him in a handbag.

    Evans fights are sooooooo boring. I had to fast forward that one.

    The Cummo fight was a good one. It's funny that the nerd who can't see turned out to be such a good fighter. I can't wait to see some of these newbies get polished up a bit.

    As for Franklin/Silva......anything can happen at this level. You just have to wait and see. One wrong move can change the whole course of the fight.....that is what I find to be the attraction of MMA fighting. It's so unpredictable.

    Franklin needs a fight before he faces Silva, who and when will that be?
    All of those matchups will be good. Strikers like Loiseau and Swick will be entertaining matchups.

    Holy crap...I just watched this fight and Leben got KNTFO!

    And I agree competely with the statement above. Silva would make a great match against a striker, but I don't think he's proved himself on the ground. I haven't seen him in a while though, so I could be wrong.

    I don't remember who it was against, maybe Ryo Chonan [sp?], but I saw Silva in a Pride match from 2004 or 2005, and his ground game was pretty solid. He did end up losing, but he definitely held his own on the ground.

  6. Then I stand corrected.

    It was against Chonan, and Chonan caught Silva in an amazing heel hook.
    Sivla is skilled on the ground but striking is definitely his strength

  8. Chonan's finish was sick in that fight. I just returned it to Netflix : I'd like to see it again.

  9. Rogue, I'm still having issues with my media players. I'll PM you over there.

  10. I just watched the Silva/Leben fight. I can't believe how much **** Leben was talking. His record does not speak highly of his previous competition; I think it said he was 15-1. Silva was outstanding.
    Leben is lucky Silva kept thinking Big John was gonna stop it. The first time Leben went down, Silva paused before continuing. Then, after the big knee that ended it, he didn't dive on top and start pounding a la Crocop. Leben is lucky the beating wasn't worse.

    You have been watching a lot of MMA lately! Shouldn't you be grading some papers or something? LOL.

  12. Summertime, bro. Nothing to do but watch technically sophisticated violence

    Seriously though, I DVR everything that comes on Spike (as of the last month), and I get MMA DVDs from Netflix. I only watch them while doing cardio, and I do 30-75 min. just about every day. 60min of cardio is so easy while watching Fedor, Crocop, Silva, etc. The fights keep you hyped up so the cardio never gets tedious.

    My wife is becoming a bit concerned, though
