I'm pretty sure Dave Meltzer said that Anderson Silva flat out is refusing to fight on the UK show. So either he got his info wrong (which is pretty rare), or they threw an assload of money at Silva then he's not gonna be on it.

Meltzer tried to think of what fight they could put on to main event the show, and couldn't think of anything. So it's possible UFC threw money at Silva. They don't really have anything else right now.

I heard Thales Leites is going to be next in line for a MW title shot, so that could be Anderson's next opponet.

Diego is going to rape Stevenson, and I like Stevenson. But I don't see fase of the game he has an advantage over Diego in.

I don't think Diego is going to run through Stevenson by any means but he certainly posseses the tools required to beat him.

Diego is indeed a better fighter, and should be favored in this fight, but I'd be remiss if I didn't express some concern over Diego's bullish takedowns playing right into Stevenson's guillotine game. Of course, it may never come to that point (Diego is a more well-rounded striker), but worth pointing out.

They really save the shit cards for England eh?

Diego is a better striker, better grappler (top or bottom) and when things get tough he thrives, while Stevenson folds.

I don't see how he loses this fight.

Marquardt is going to pwn Gouveia. I'm sick of the Gouveia hypetrain, even though he really impressed me against Jason MacDaddy. Nobody dominated Jason MacDaddy since his UFC stint, like that.

Doerkson tapped him in Montreal but nobody seems to bring that up.

And yeah, Marquardt by absolute bludgeoning in that one.

He's a step up from Quarry as far as I see it. Regardless of how he scored the W Sonnen did beat Filho whom many at the time would've still ranked a top five opponent.

Excatly, Sonnen is a top 10 middleweight as far as my rankings go, so I think this is a good fight for Maia.

Sonnen by KO if he's not stupid enough to go to the ground. He will be, so Sonnen loses by submission.

I haven't seen enough from Maia's stand up to assume he's going to get KO'd if Sonnen keeps it to his feet.

Maia has some pretty good wrestling to go along with his BJJ skills, it wouldn't surprise me if he took Sonnen down.

Maia is very crafty in terms of getting guys to the mat without him actually taking them down. Sonnen is a good wrestler though so if he can keep this on the feet it'll be interesting to see how Maia fares.

I still stand by my tappity tap tap taparoo though.

Sonnen is on a different plain of wrestling than what Maia is used to. This showed in his fights with Filho, whose naturally stocky build lends itself well to taking down even experienced grapplers. Sonnen's standup is also very good. This fight is his to lose, which he probably will.

Of course he will, because Sonnen is utterly worthless when it matters.

You know what I miss? Canadian cards.

Was listening to Sirius Fight Club yesterday and there was apparently talk of Lesnar/Mir II and Silva/Leites in Montreal in April. But aside from that they're saying that potential bouts are David Loiseau vs Ed Herman and Jonathan Goulet vs the Barn Cat.
