    Maia's +514. I figured his odds would be longer than that.

    If they get longer I might be stupid enough to bet him, but not to actually predict he'll win.

    I have the brains NOT to pick Maia over Silva.

    If ANDtheMC didn't commit suicide due to the Carwin raping Mir, I'm sure he'll be in shortly to disagree with everyone in this thread.

    it's tough for me to agree with that. i'd agree that it's tough to be excited about contenders, but that has more to do with the champs.

    lol, no.

    if that was the case, i would of said the lightweight division is weak too

    the middleweight division and welterweight division is weak as hell

    whens the last time the WW and MW division had any big prospects?

    strikeforce alone has a better welterweight and middleweight division than ufc

    the ufc welterweight division has been getting stronger tho, but very slowly

    the middleweight, not so much

    cmon man

    akiyama, Okami, Vitor, Marquardt, sonnen, wand, bisping, palhares, maia, a number of lhws that will have to move down

    kos, rumble, thiago, fitch, diego, daley, ellenberger, alves, hardy, kim, lytle, saunders, story, taylor

    mw is undoubtedly ufc's weakest division, but ww is pretty fucking stacked.

    i wouldnt consider the welterweight division stacked just yet, as ive said before tho it has slowly been getting stronger

    and diego doesnt even fight at welterweight anymore, only lightweight

    but after watching the first episode of TUF 11, shit has fucken badass dudes who stay looking to knock fools the fuck out

    shit has alotta potential badasses to strengthen up middleweight the division after the show

    koscheck needs a title shot tho, shits been long overdue

    i used to think maia was the challenge for silva but after what marquardt did.. and knowing silva is that much better with his standup, i find it hard to believe maia has any chance.. im curious how the ground game would go but i have a feeling we'll never get to see that much

    That shit cracked me up. Nah... I'm picking Anderson because I have a hard time believe he can get Anderson to the ground. Rousimar Palhares could but Maia can't (IMO). If it goes to the ground, Maia could easily win tho'. But he's gonna have to get it to the ground with a good amount of time left in the round.

    Yeah, I saw that match. For some reason I thought they rematched and Kenny came out on top. Kenny's twice the fighter he was then, It would have been a great fight.

    Kenny's one of the most improved fighters we've ever seen in MMA imo.

    went from okay jiu jitsu guy to probably the second best lightweight in the world.
