Silva - a striker aint gonna do it son
Franklin - Forest hasn't had a fight since 2009... Ring rust?
Jones - Ryan Bader is good but not god
The UFC promos almost always hype up every major fight like that.
there's a promo that says silva/belfort is the most important fight ever in the ufc? wtf?
It says that Silva/Belfort is the most important fight in VITOR BELFORT's ufc career. The fact that he's fought Randy Couture for the Light Heavy Weight Strap three times makes me doubt this.

Jon Jones and Bader are both awesome. This is def. the Co-main event!
If Forrest cant bully Franklin then Rich will pick him apart. Good matchup.
Cerrone is scrappy as hell and so hoping Kelly is too.
Card looks awesome on paper.
Rooting for Franklin.
Vitor is probably the last striker left who has a chance against Silva. Should be a good fight, but I hope they start matching Silva up with more top wrestlers after this if he wins. Frankling vs Forrest is also hard to call. Gut feeling says Franklin though.
Really excited for this card.
Anderson Silva vs. Vitor Belfort - Can't pick against Silva, but kind of feel like Vitor can pull it off.
Forrest Griffin vs. Rich Franklin - Picking Rich over Forrest, I like Forrest, but I think Rich can handle him.
Jake Ellenberger vs. Carlos Eduardo Rocha
Ryan Bader vs. Jon Jones - Yeah, Jones-Bader will be awesome, but I definitely have Jones in this one.
Miguel Torres vs. Antonio Banuelos
Donald Cerrone vs. Paul Kelly - Just like watching the cowboy fight.
Chad Mendes vs. Michihiro Omigawa - Because Judo!
Gabe Ruediger vs. Paul Taylor
Norifumi 'Kid' Yamamoto vs. Demetrious Johnson
Kyle Kingsbury vs. Ricardo Romero
Mike Pierce vs. Kenny Robertson
Looks like a really good card.
Yeah. The "old" Vitor time period lasted for four fights from 1996-1997 and ended when Randy Couture picked him apart. An "old" Vitor would get outclassed by Anderson Silva.
A Vitor who's heinously awesome talent is properly nurtured is the Vitor needed to beat Anderson Silva.
