Re: The Phenom vs The Spider at UFC 108

The champ has cleaned up the division, who else is the UFC gonna match him up against??

They can have him rematch a guy who he has already obliterated (Nate/Hendo) or fight a new opponent; an opponent who happens to be one of the most exciting & dangerous fighters in the history of the sport and who will be the best striker the champ has ever faced; an opponent who in his only fight since returning to the UFC became only the second man ever, along with the current champ, to finish former champ Rich Franklin (a man Hendo could only beat in a controversial split decision) in the UFC, and he did it as fast & as in devastating fashion as the current champ did....

This fight is one of the most logical match ups the UFC has ever come up with, and one one of the best match ups in the history of the sport. Get ready for fireworks...

Re: The Phenom vs The Spider at UFC 108

I want to see the fight. My only issue is Hendo and Nate both earned a rematch. Vitor comes back after 4 years, fights Franklin at a catch weight and gets and immediate title shot. I don't agree with that. Also, Hendo has a win against Vitor.

(I know Vitor, who lost to Hendo, just beat Rich, who beat Hendo. lol)

I may be reading this wrong but Dan Henderson beat Rich Franklin by Split Decision.

While he did knock out Rich it was not anywhere near the fashion that Anderson finished him off.

To be honest from what I saw it looked like Rich got grazed by a shot to the back of the head and went out for a second and Vitor jumped on him and finished him off with 2 or 3 more shots to the back of the head.

Now I am no MMA expert and since the announcers and judges didn't say anything I assume that like most sports **** happens and you have to deal with it and thus Rich loses and Vitor wins, but to call it a win that was as devastating as Anderson Silva's destruction would be misleading in my opinion.

Re: The Phenom vs The Spider at UFC 108

In my book these guys should all fight each other. Eventually they will. We know the winner of Nate vs Hendo will fight the winner of Vitor vs Silva, so there we know that in mid 2010 Vitor will fight Nate on his first title defense I definately wanna see a rematch between Vitor and Hendo. The Vitor that lost to Hendo was the worse Vitor I have ever seen. The guy didn't throw a single punch! Hendo usually brings it but in that fight he didn't do a whole lot either. Them rematching at the UFC would be a sick fight, specially if the title is on the line. Well, if Dan can lay & pray on Nate for three rounds...

Well, notice in my post I described the win as devastating, not as destructive. Anderson Silva's run over Franklin was utter destruction, you are absolutely right. Vitor's KO over Franklin on the other hand was as devastating as they come...

battle royal!



I don't agree with the politics involved in the match-up, but will certainly watch the fight between Vitor and Anderson
