I'm interested to see how well Vera will go at a weight class that is more suited towards him. I hope he comes off shining.
Silva win via Murder.
As for JT Money and CB ... hard to pick. Hope it's an exciting match though.

He'll probably tag CB, and with CB's glass chin, he'll fall, JT will pounce on him, CB will pull guard, JT won't pass, end of round rinse lather, repeat x3.
Machida has already said that he won't fight Silva.
Similar to how Silva and Filho won't fight eadh other.
And Silva's already said the LHW belt (will) belong to Machida, so he won't go after it.

Here's a vid showing his clinch skills.
Not terrible, but notice around 5:10-5:25. Using interlaced fingers switching on and off to gable grip, and before they get pressed up against the cage Irvin allows a huge amount of space for Rhino to escape. Too bad he doesn't know his plum clinch escapes. I guarantee you Silva does.
afaik, Silva moving up is a one time thing, read an interview with him recently were he says he 's doing it as a favour to Dana White
Here you go:
If this happens I'll become the pope!

I say Anderson Silva by pure awesomeness.
You know guys I really really wanna go with Irvin simply for the love of an underdog, but I just cannot do it. It would be like me loading five chambers on a six shot revolver then playing russian roulette. Possible, but not very damn probable that I, like Irvin won't end up with our heads knocked half way across the room/cage. Good times.
Irvin is making a killing on the stand-up circuit. Now he says "I don't think he's real technical in terms of the clinch."
Because stopping Rich Franklin from escaping for 2 solid minutes is really pretty easy. It's not like you need technique or anything.
It is more like playing Russian roulette with a storm rifle... your only chance is the trigger jams.
At the recent Jungle Fight Championship, Silva said he weighed 100kg.
