    we need to start a "stop mentioning/talking or asking about" ______ thread with stuff like the fact that horn is out of the ufc and that dana doesn't like/won't do tourneys, etc. and make it a sticky at the top of the forum.

    it could also explain the difference between "your" and "you're."

    2. Nate Marquardt – 2 wins via decision, both against very respectable fighters.
    3. Jeremy Horn – 2 wins in the Middleweight Division, 1 Decision and 1 Submission via Arm Bar (not against top contenders).
    4. Anderson Silva – 1 very impressive first round win via KO against a guy who (most said before the fight) has a cinder block for a chin.
    5. David Terrell – 1 fight back in the UFC, 1 first round win via choke against a fighter with a respectable MMA record.

    This list doesn’t say Swick is better than anyone below him or that Anderson Silva is the 4th best fighter on this list, it simply states who I think are the top 5 contenders and why.

    Negative. The fights on TUF are considered to be exhibitions.

    Good idea but who gets a shot in the meantime?

    Horn/Silva

    Jeremy Horn should fight Anderson Silva to prove Silva truly deserves a title shot in the UFC. After Silva KO's him he will deserve a shot. Having Silva fight again will build the hype for the fight more than just having the one fight under his belt before he fights Franklin. No one has a chance against Franklin in my opinion. After seeing how that guy trains for a fight on that show I was blown away and don't think his focus will ever waiver to a point where he can be defeated.

    you've got to be fucking kidding me. Leben has no fucking chance. Ace would dominate him faster then he did with Quarry. every contender at MW could do that same shit to Leben, not just Silva.
