If the fight were to happen, Anderson would finish Paulo "Over Rated"(IMO) Filho in round 1.

Problem with your statement is that 1.) Beating Paulo is not guaranteed and 2.) Sonnen as a fighter, his skillset is alot like Hendo's except he's not quite as good as Dan. And if Dan cant do it, I dont think Chael can either.

Sorry to disappoint you.

to me silva has two more matches ahead of him
one with okami and the other with fihlo

Did you see Cung wince like a little girl when he got tagged by Shamrock in the 2nd round? I think Anderson would walk through him. But at the same time I would much rather see Cung Le vs. Silva over Filho laying and praying against Silva.

This fight won't happen. Silva refuses to fight Filho, just like Silva wants Lyoto Machida to take the LHW belt and won't fight Lyoto either, they all train together, and Anderson sees plenty of fights out there that he wants.

Goran Reljic looks like he could be a contender as well. Although I'll probably reserve judgement until I see a little more of him. If he beats Thales Leites though it could streamline him towards a title shot.

Filho of Japan looked like he could have taken Anderson down and make a good fight of it, but Filho of the US has looked very lethargic. If we see the old Filho then I would really like to see that fight.

I would also love to see Cung Le fight Silva.

I hope they combine the divisions. It's not a deep enough div (even worldwide) for one company to split the good guys in it.
