    I think it will be a grappler with a good chin who will take Anderson down.

    A guy like Leites would be interesting as he has a great chin and has excellent ground skills. Demian Maia is world class on the ground but I have no idea how good his chin we will find that out against Quarry.

    Henderson could fare better in a rematch but he is getting up there in age.

    Okami could also pose a threat has he has pretty good wrestling and good control from the top position he is also huge at mw.

    I just did not like that Anderson was more concerned with dancing around and putting on a show than actually fighting Cote. Its a mild concern as he has proven to be a dominant champion but lets hope it is not a trend.

    Bullshit main event. Silva didn't come to finish the fight at all. He was all about clowning around...

    I completely agree. I texted a friend that I was not sure he if was in a fight or rather in a dramatic theatre performance.

    That was a horrendous main event. But through no fault of Cote - he came to fight. Very disappointing from Silva's standpoint.

    The fans in the arena are douchebags booing at every moment then booing Cote. I am glad I was not there to be associated with it.
    That was my impression as well. Silva trying to hard to put on a show for the fans that it was TOO much. OVerall decent card, but man do I hate me some Alves.

    BTW, forgot to add, GREAT fight from Sherk-Griffin. Really enjoyed it, and had Sherk in the close win, just like the judges.

    How about Werdum getting dropped!! Spider looked bored in the octogon. Cote came to fight. Rotten luck for him.

    Sherk, Griffin, Dos Santos, and Fisher all picked up an extra 65 g's in bonus money.
