    This would be a dream fight for me! I hope they make it happen but I can't see Chuck beating Anderson.

    Couple things about those fights bother me.

    Bisping vs Silva

    This fight may only last 1-2 minutes and even if it lasts 1 round (which would be a surprise) it would most likely be all Silva and Bisping most likely couldnt do anything to Silva. This in and out stick and move tactic Bisping uses woul completly go wrong for him against Anderson. NOT WORTH BUYING or filling a main event.

    Kongo vs Lesnar

    Wow that sounds like the most boring fight ive seen in a long time. Lesnar would dominate him. kongo has shown that he cant get back to his feet and lacks a good ground game. NO WAY could he stop Lesnar from taking the fight to the ground and keeping it there.

    Prisyan vs GSP

    Why would GSP fight Karo? Karo just got KO'd by Thiago who is the obvious next fight for GSP assuming he gets past Penn. And the fight with Thiago is very dangerous.

    Marquardt vs Hendo

    I like this fight a lot and IMO would make a clear #1 contender for the MW Div. But I wouldnt mind seeing Bisping fight either of them instead.

    i agree with everything u said steve sept i dont think marquardt vs hendo would make a clear number one contender. nate lost to thales albiet a controversial loss. i think thales and bisping like it or not are farther up the totem poll at this point in time.
