    good tester fight at 205 for anderson

    i can see the o'brien match being a snoozer if he takes it to the ground

    this guy isnt even a top 15 contender at 205....weak...

    I love Anderson Silva as a fighter. I hope he comes in sharp and doesn't take the sandman lightly. Anderson has said he wakls around at roughly 213 so the weight hopefully won't be a problem.

    Dana owes some sort of explanation on the reason O'Brien was dropped then brought back to fill a rushed card just to counter program Affliction. I hope they allow him to complete his final two fights on the contract he signed. He's got potential to improve especially at his age.

    yep....he's a natty 215 guy anyway.....its not like he has a ton of work ahead of him. His skillset is still far superior to most at 205...his chin vs the heavier hitters is the only thing i wonder about. Wonder, not worry.....Silva is an ELITE fighter, i think he'll do just fine at 205

    I think it could be a pretty good test of Silva's chin as the Sandman has some power. I don't doubt that Silva has the skills to win at 205 but against some of the better strikers he may have problems.

    I'm looking forward to seeing O'Brien back.
