This will be a good fight and prove all the haters wrong. I wonder who else could fight in Montreal?

I think GSP will be on this card, no matter what. At least I hope! Win or lose at 94 I think he'll fight Alves.

As a Canadian, who watched GSP / Serra 2 on TV while his best friend was there, i WILL be at this event. Lord as my witness I'm going to be there. This is a quality main event, going to result in a brutal ko/tko for Silva and I'm guessing early. I think Thales Leites is a good fighter, but Silva is a phenom. People who are taking his making fun of Cote as a sign of weakness are in for a surprise, a rude painful surpise haha.

Keep the UFC coming to Canada! Let's get MMA sanctioned in Ontario and the UFC can have an event in Toronto and have a really quality payday, while satisfying loads of serious fans.

Matt Hughes said he is fighting Serra in April. I doubt both of those fights plus GSP is possible.

But it would be cool.

Maybe Goulet will be on it. But I doubt Cote will be ready either.

Looks like bad timing for a Canadian card, eh?

Anderson Silva to headline in Canada ?

Seems odd to me, i would have thought GSP will headline this card

terrible matchup, anderson will likely get boo'd for his preformance against cote and thales will just get beat down severly for a record breaking win streak... sounds pretty weak to me, i'm not impressed and might not even buy the ppv for this one unless it gets some good fights...

Especially when he was stopped at the border a couple of months ago. Has that been resolved?

i dont think that thales deserves a title shot.

great fight but to healine in canada
i thought gsp would be it but i doubt both fighters will have their belts on the line

Since UFC 94 is January 31st, it's been pretty apparent GSP would not be on this card.

I like the matchup. Thales is a great grappler and has pretty good standup as well. He poses a lot of problems for Anderson. Most likely Anderson will TKO Thales on the feet but I don't see any other contenders as worthy.

Hopefully this card will be anchored by a really strong co main event. I think if the UFC would headline an event with one of their more popular stars like Lidell and include Silva in one of the events, he would receive the exposure a fighter needs to sell consistent PPV's.

#1 Anderson Silva
#2 Dan Henderson
#3 Rich Franklin
#4 Yushin Okami
#5 Nate Marquardt
#6 Robbie Lawler
#7 Gegard Mousasi
#8 Matt Lindland
#9 Demian Maia
#10 Paulo Filho

According to the people on this website, these are the top 10 middleweights in the world. Anderson Silva has fought 4 of them with a record of 3-1.

After his last two fights against Irvin and Cote. Two fighters if we're being honest, were not supposed to win. Should we be expecting Anderson to be facing a ranked middleweight now?!

Whats wrong with Okami? He is a ranked MW, he was the last guy to defeat Silva.....


Jesse_Canadian_MMA » Posted 1/11/08 5:48:00PM

not a fan of this fight, leites? I'd rather see Maia in there or wait to see what happens with this Okami/Lister fight.
as for St Pierre if he wins he fights Alves if he loses he fights Koscheck again or Mike Swick

and just cause its in Canada doesnt mean it has to be canada vs ...
but there is Stout, Bocek, Soszynski, Jason Day,
maybe Soszynski against Cantwell since steve is so adament about fighting ultimate fighters?

There had better be some awesome under card because I want order it. Not a fight I want to see.

casey64 » Posted 7/5/07 2:39:00PM

This fight is week, anderson by domination.
