Anderson is a strong guy. I think I match up really well. He's a great champion and a great fighter but, I mean he's not a big puncher. He was submittied by Ryo Chonan in the third round and I knocked out Chonan in under two minutes


MMAth doesnt work Phil.


Look at the roster of the UFC, they're a bunch of bums at 185 lbs

Like Evan Tanner who Beat him Twice and Pete Sell who subbed him?


I felt that the Pride middleweights with Dan Henderson, myself, Misaki, Yuki Kondo, and Denis Kang were all better than the Rich Franklin's and, ya know, Evan Tanner, Nathan Marquardt in the UFC.

Once again how does Phil think he is better than Tanner? Espically considering Evan beat him........... Twice.



I just got sick of reading that article after that.

LOL. If Phil wants to use MMA math, lets see...

Phil lost to Tanner, who was destroyed by Franklin, who was destroyed by Silva.

I highly doubt that will ever happen. Besides, I'd rather see Baroni win so he gets a title shot in the UFC.
