I think UFC 107 underscored various bloggers point as of late, the bosses are the by a wide margin the best warriors at their weight. The bosses just need to guard their titles not win them, Anderson Silva demonstrates my point, at middleweight he has annihilated everybody bar Thietes Lietes who just needed a ground ju jitsu battle. At the point when he moves forward to light heavyweight he puts on a banger act and sends shockwaves through the light heavyweight division!

Champions like GSP and BJ Penn in the past have pursued their challenger to player and win, this as I would see it permits the challenger opportunity to transform guard into assault and permits the challenger a superior way to beat the boss.

BJ Penn showed at UFC 107 he is by the best warrior at 155 and needs to stand out forever as awesome at 155. What intrigued me more is the number of challengers recommend they can take care of BJ and have the right stuff to do as such. BJ has battled up welterweight and won battles, he has combat legends, for example, Matt Hughes and GSP for titles, he has likewise recently battled current light heavyweight champ Lyoto Machida when pushing more than 205 catchweight. Recall BJ Penn has been champion at both welterweight (champion at UFC 46 and stripped when he finished paperwork for K-1) and lightweight guarded since UFC 80, he has beaten Joe Stevenson, Sean Sherk, Kenny Florian and most as of late Diego Sanchez at UFC 107.

It likewise goes for GSP, he has guarded his title multiple times, each challenger proposes they will beat GSP, again his abilities, assurance and champion mindset guarantees he wins the battle before he enters the octagon. GSP has been champion since UFC 83, he has guarded against Jon Fitch at UFC 87, BJ Penn otherwise known as “greasegate” at UFC 94 and Thiago Alves at UFC 100.

Assuming that you go up to middleweight, what would you be able to say about Anderson Silva? The Brazilian has beaten each challenger before him for a really long time, he has gone up to light heavyweight and beaten a previous hero in Forest Griffin and hazardous striker James Irwin. There are many calls for Anderson to move forward and battle preparing accomplice and current champ Lyoto Machida yet rejects do to being companions. Exceptionally respectable at the end of the day he has the right stuff to beat the mythical beast. For me Anderson Silva is the best pound for pound contender in MMA and just has been tested once in his UFC profession. He hasn’t lost in 3 years which was a DQ. His last genuine lost was back in 2004 when Pride was in its hayday. Anderson has protected against Nate Marquardt at UFC 73, Rich Franklin at UFC 77, Dan Henderson at UFC 82, Patrick Côté at UFC 90, Thales Leites at UFC 97.

The possibly question in this contention is on the off chance that Lyoto Machida and Brock Lesnar are sufficient to be long haul champions at their individual loads. Lyoto has just protected his title once, which had the entire world inquiry the outcome against individual Brazilan Shogun Rua. The rematch is expected for March 2010. Then, at that point, you have previous WWE champ who has been a disclosure in his 4 battles in the UFC, he has beaten legend Randy Couture, Frank Mir at their rematch and Heath Hearing. His defeat possibly when he battles strategic and extremely specialized warriors as his crude power and shear size will frighten 90% of heavyweights. Brock seems, by all accounts, to be moving past the most exceedingly awful of his wounds and has been made tentative plans for to battle in June against number one competitor Shane Carwin. For me both can be champion for some battles however question they will for the shear reality the nature of competitors in the two loads.

Light heavyweight has various potential title competitors as of now –

Shogun Rua, current number one competitor and as of late lost to Machida at UFC 104. The rematch is made tentative arranges for UFC 113. Rua has not shown his best since joining the UFC yet Dana White and Joe Silva consider him to be the main. eventi UFC There are three warriors who most certainly would give Shogun issues assuming he wins the title.

Anderson Silva, current UFC middleweight champ has battled two times at the heavier weight and obliterated both previous champ Forrest Griffin and James Irwin inside the primary rounds. He doesn’t battle with the heavier contenders and expressly speaking I accept he could inconvenience anybody. He has expressed he could never battle stable mate Lyoto Machida.

Rashad Evans, previous champ and recuperating from his lose to Machida at UFC 98. He was because of battle individual top 5 competitor Rampage Jackson yet acting responsibilities have confused those plans. Evans has lost just lost one battle and hopes to make one more move to the top by battling Thiago Silva at UFC 108 as the headliner for the main UFC occasion in 2010. I figure given the open door Rashad could beat 95% of contenders.

Randy Couture, the previous light heavyweight and heavyweight champ has as of late made the stride down to light heavyweight since his consecutive loses at 206. Randy prevailed upon a dodgy passing judgment on choice Brandon Vera at UFC 105 in Manchester. Couture even at 46 is a genuine danger at light heavyweight and will be an enormous 205, he showed his power against Vera and could challenge any of the large punches like Evans, Jackson or Machida. It’s recommended that Couture with a success over individual 40+ ex champ Mark Coleman at UFC 109 tenacious, would have a chance at the title. To me altogether too soon however is a genuine legend of the UFC yet after another success would qualifies him for one more break at the title.
