I just read this tonight on sherdog. It's going to be a great fight. Vitor is arguably the best striker Anderson has faced and vice versa.

The Pitbull moving up 2 weight classes? Or is that supposed to be Thiago Silva?


WAR VITOR!!!! Though I wouldn't mind seeing Vitor get a couple more wins in this UFC campaign before challenging The Spider. He's been on a good run lately, but I fear Anderson may be too much and then the UFC may be left with a Vitor with a shaky mental game, same position as a few years ago.

Vitor is great, but Marquardt should get Anderson first.

Re: The Phenom vs The Spider at UFC 108

I was getting excited to see Hendo vs Anderson 2. Only guy to win a round against Silva and I think the best legit contender at middle weight. Oh well.

Nate already had a shot and didn't capitalize as did Hendo. Hendo and Nate both had good comeback runs and it's very debatable who should get another shot first. Have them fight (Easier said then done) and decide who gets the next shot.

Vitor hasn't faced Anderson and is arguably the best striker Anderson has faced in the UFC. If Silva is only going to fight three more times in the UFC, I want to see it against people he hasn't already beat.

Wow, Hendo and Nate got screwed. This is almost as ridiculous as Randy coming out of retirement into a hw title fight.

I think that fact that he won would mean it wasn't too ridiculous.
