    Sergei Kharitonov >> “BigFoot” Silva> Justin Elders

    They had a chance to make the good fight. Instead we've got to settle for this. It's a damn shame.

    I dont think this fight is bad it has potential to be a very good war it all depends on which justin eilers shows up that night.Silva should get this win though b/c he is just just overall much btter than eilers who gets KO'd way to easily and too often.

    eilers has done good in the lower shows but i think silva is a step above what he has been fighting.
