Man, with past wins(outside of the UFC) over Jay Hieron, Rory Markham, and a decsion loss to Fitch and a win over Steve Bruno that Jow Silva would test this guy a bit. but they throw him in with an unknown in John Howard. Not that Howard isn't deserving to fight in the UFC but i want to see Wilson against top competition.

Chris Wilson is for real. I think he is one of the top 10 WW's in the UFC.

Pretty bizzarre, signing and matchup.

Howard fought Alexandre Moreno in one of the local shows World Fight League, and he was armbarred in the first round. It was a couple years ago, but I can't imagine he's improved enough to compete with Wilson. Even if he has dropped a weight class.

I agree completely. That is a fight where the winner would be going somewhere.
