    Anderson is the best at his current weight. But at 205 , Shogun will have the fight of his life with Anderson Silva. But Silva will be facing a very dangerous opponent. Specially in the clinches. Anderson is a master. Still Shogun is a great fighter and it is highly possible for him to win..

    Dana White mentioned that before Anderson can move up to LHW he must finish out Belfort and Sonnen. I believe he can do it, that scumbag. Once he does that I imagine he'll fight one or two guys in the division and head over to fight Shogun. Shogun's route will probably be more along the lines of Evans, Lil Nog and possibly one other fighter, possibly Couture because Shogun has said that he wanted to fight Couture.

    I think Shogun has what it takes to beat the spider. I think Shogun is better at figuring out his opponent's weaknesses and his striking is very unnatural and awkward. His striking is way better than anybody Silva has fought.

    People doubted him against Machida and he figured Machida out even when machida trains with Anderson. This could be the biggest MMA fight up to that point. When it comes to betting on the fighter I'll be betting on Shogun.

    Neither fighter have an easy win in their hands. Anybody who will easily say "Shogun" or "Silva" just doesn't know either fighter. I will be cheering on Shogun and I honestly feel as though he will take Silva out. He has the KO power and is very good at figuring out his opponents. You can't say either has **** striking, I just can't stand Silva and aside from Shogun being my fave guy (next to Couture) he has the tools to be in the top two or three top pound for pound fighters.
