Default Spider has met his match

GO FORREST!!! Def one of my fav fighters in the UFC today and i think he will beat Anderson Silva, at the very least, it wont be boring, Forest will not back down, has the same reach, a solid jaw and is just a tough ass, monkey looking son o a bitch, im so stoked for that!!!

But 1st, what i think will be FOTY (fight of the year), Machida vs Evans, deserves it's own thread, coming soon

I am really looking forward to Machida Evans, but only problwm I can see is they both are better at countering, could turn into a fight where no one makes an forward attacking move.

Fight of the year, Jeez, I dont know.

I really enjoyed some of the fights this past year, but fight of the year I dont know.

Rashad - Machida will definitely be an electric fight.

I can see Rashad pushing the action he's such a good striker now coupled with his wrestling I don't think he'll hold back.

FOTY, possible but I don't see it...There are so many fights just in the next 2-3 months that could be fight of the year.

Diaz - Smith
Brown - Faber 2
BJ - Kenflo

No shortage of exciting MMA that's forsure. The next month alone has 3-4 huge shows!

WTF??? Has this been set??? WOW!!

That will be a heck of a fight indeed.... Griffin with the strength advantage and Silva with the obvious quickness.

Very true. My only worry for Forrest is Silva's handspeed. He also has some decent power. Enough to give Griffin some problems. And I'm not sure that Griffin's good enough on the ground either.

Still not counting Forrest out though. He' s real-life Rocky lol.

It will be a VERY interesting fight.

Wait. Forrest fights at 205 and Silva fights at 185. Is Silva moving up to 205 then? Silva will have this fight in the palm of his hands.

Rashad is so illusive and skeptical with his striking. You never know when he will throw his big bomb.
