UFC vs AFFLICTION

UFC's Dana White has really scrambled and come up with a less-than interesting fight for Anderson Silva vs "The Sandman" Irvin. Silva is the best and even though he is going up to 205lbs...the Sandman is not in his league. I love the UFC, but putting together a quick event for TV to interrupt he Afliction event is not good and may not be very entertaining.

Todd
Anderson is a freak that guy is light years ahead of the sport they need to put him in a glass case with a title under it saying "in case of title contention break glass" and he will remain there for a long time no one beats him

Re: UFC vs AFFLICTION

Silva shouldn't be considered much of an underdog since he walks around at 213 lbs before he cuts to make weight. I think Irvin has a chance to beat him but I wouldn't place a bet on him.

I heard Hermes Franca is going to fight Frankie Edgar on the same card but I'm still going to record it and go watch the Affliction PPV.

Re: UFC vs AFFLICTION

Look at this card like a Spike TV Fight Night and not a main card PPV.
If you watch it with that kind of head, you can enjoy it and not expect much.

Silva will struggle ever so slightly before he taps out Irvin. A Superman punch is not going to catch Silva off-guard.

Re: UFC vs AFFLICTION

I think it's a good match up. Irvin is a fighter with some serious KO power against some very strong oponnents.
