Silva's manager reveals that this card can be even better than the original and says Anderson is in the main event fighting at LHW! (It won't be Evans^^)

 

Co main Glover vs TBA...

 

(Glover isn't fighting Chael or Maldonado).

I've updated the thread.

 

LHW's who aren't booked for a fight and haven't been ruled out of contention to fight on the card,

Jimmo, Bonnar, Te Huna, Vera, return for Yvel maybe? Anyone of those may be put in against Glover, I'd love to see Yvel back, looks a beast at 205!

 

205 opponent for Silva? Shogod!!!

Shogun's in a fight with Gus but I'm sure this would take precedent, I just hope they don't give him a spoon fed guy...

No in the article they say Evans isn't it.

 

PS: Silva also said he would not go up again and here he is' date=' I think he doesn't care anymore he has proved what needed to be proven he just wants to put on big fights now.[/quote']

 

If not Shogun, either Tito's coming back (lol), or this man......

I wonder how people would feel if Jones quickly beat Vitor while remaining unscathed.....then stepped up to fight Anderson Silva in Rio at 153.

 

Wishful thinking. :)

 

I would love that, so many haters would shut their mouths about both men...

 

But I can't see JBJ taking two fights in just one month especially against A. Silva.

I think Vitor has a better chance than Machida did.

 

The way i see it is Vitor will be very dangerous early but Jon will probably take him down and win the war of attrition busting him up and then open can of whoop *** in the second round.

 

I think Machida can go into later rounds. First fight Jones capitilized on the cut not taking anything away though but i think Machida is a tougher match but Vitor is dangerous early.

I'm on Ariel Helwani's twitter right now. He keeps updating. I'm excited to see what they do!

 

Silva vs Shogun would be good. But seeing how Shogun fought against Vera, I think Silva would win easily.

 

But I have a feeling it will be Machida vs Shogun 3.

Jones said he lacked a killer instinct in the Rashad fight and he knew it.....but he said Vitor will be a much different story. I don't see this fight touching a 3rd round. Maybe not even a 2nd...

 

Shogun needs to GTFO!!! Silva will tool him! Such an easy win. Forest would be another joke! Spoon feeding Silva fighters who like to stand and bang......Silva wins hands down. It should be Evans or Bonnar!!!

JBJ would've had to be recklessly agressive to put Evans away in that fight, Evans was just tryin to survive after the 1st, he was completely outclassed and froze up in that defensive position trying not to get finished.

I agree and if Vitor can't get it done early in the first i think he's in big trouble especially if he gets taken down early.
