    UFC 162 was a pretty good card. All the fights just all over the place. lol @ Silva.

    Spoiler for Silva:


    The 163 card looks pretty awesome as well.

    He lost on purpose to either get out of his contract / make more money on the rematch.

    Just good business.

    Silva does that constantly. He was bound to get caught by someone. This guy caught him.

    Was so overdue, and i am so happy about it. I hope he doesn't get/take a rematch. He really doesn't deserve it after the joke he has tried to make out of his last 5 or 6 fights.

    He'll get whatever he wants. And deservedly so. He's the best there is, regardless of his dumb antics.

    Nah Jone Jones is better than Silva, and arguably GSP is too, and IMO I would put aldo above Silva as well. Silva was great, don't get me wrong, but he wasn't the best.

    As for his fight, when you ignore the basics in any sport, you will get smashed sooner or later, and that's exactly what happened. I'm pissed he went out this way, but I can't say I wasn't expecting it.

    Mostly this. GSP is the only fighter that really just completely dominated the cage. Jon Jones is probably one of the smartest fighters out there and puts the work into it.

    Silva was bad against guys that could really take him down and work wrestling. Those fights especially he ran in circles around the cage avoiding a fight completely.

    I would say the all around best MMA fighter currently is a tie between Jon Jones and GSP, however in my personal opinion I think as soon as Jon Jones fights someone as freakishly built as he his, he's going to lose because he relies a lot on his tremendous reach advantage to get away with a lot of shit. Jones is basically Silva 2.0 to be honest, he doesn't take some fights as seriously as he should. GSP however is all technique. His fights may be boring, but I have not seen a more technical fighter than GSP, ever. He's also a sponge when it comes to learning new stuff, as seen when he learned wrestling after fighting Matt Hughes.

    So my preference for best fighter goes to GSP, but I can see the argument for Jones.

    With all that said however, I think Hendricks will rightly knock the fuck out of GSP because Hendricks is just obscenely strong, even when he wrestled in college he was man handling people. Also Hendricks has ungodly punching power. He's defintely one the hardest hitters to surface recently, and his wrestling is top notch, right up there with Koshcheck. Historicaly, GPS has always had trouble with strong punchers, and wrestlers ( Matt Hughes, and Matt Serra ) but the fight will be fun to watch either way.

    As for Aldo I think he can go far as a champion if he retains his discipline and drive, but his weight is going to catch up to him eventually. He cuts too much.

    Silva was a good stand up fighter, much like chuck liddell. He could also defend takedowns relatively easily, however his jiu jitsu and wrestling were sorely lacking, as evident when he refused to go against maya on the ground, and when he lucked out with that triangle on sonnen the first time they fought ( let's not forget sonnen did destroy silva for 4 rounds before that point )

    Silva will take the rematch and will take the belt right back. Quick smashing like he should've done the first time. First round KO.
