    monson

    like everyone said...monson's height is a bitch...he had trouble boxing with mauricio cruz becuase of his reach, and cruz is not a striker....arlovski or sylvia would have no problem using their reach....how does everyone feel branden lee hinkle will do at 205 instead of hwt?

    Naw...but anybody know anything more about this guy Anthony Perosh the snowman is fighting at ufc 61?

    As far as I can tell he has a 5-1-0 record and he is an australian jui-jitsu submission style fighter...I guess.

    The guy better train hard and eat a big lunch...monson's pretty hungry for the UFC HW title and has had plenty of time to heal, train and prepare....and has way more experience.

    Plus since monson hooked up with ATT...he has been tearing up anyone he gets matched up with for a while.

    I think AA / Monson would be an awesome fight. AA has an impressive background in Sambo, and Monson being the Abu-Dhabi champion. Any thought on who you'd rather see win?

    i said he's next in line after AA.I don't think he'll fight Sylvia for the HW title ,but rather AA.

    I understand that they are both multi-dimensional fighters, but Silvia has yet to show a really significant ground game. That's not to say that he doesn't have one, but Monson is an Abu-Dhabi champ, I just don't think Silvia could realistically compete with that. Not in the long run of a 5 round fight.

That's a long way to go on someone who has a at least a little bit of a takedown defense. You're right though, Monson would be free to take his sub as he pleased if it went to the ground, assuming he had the time to work it. I feel it going to a decision.

    the dude already is a contender he's next in line after AA.
