Yeah, Anderson is quite possibly the best fighter in MMA history.
Frank Mir is a great fighter and one of my favorites, but he was beaten by Lesnar in such dominant fashion because of poor strategy. He pulled Jiu-Jitsu guard, big no no with someone so much larger than you, as they can easily overwhelm you with their superior size and strength. And he showed poor clinch defense against Carwin. He also seems to fold under big pressure as well.
205 is easily the most stacked division in the UFC. They have all the top LHW's in the world besides Gegard Mousasi (who's Strikeforce LHW Champion), Renato "Babalu" Sobral and King Mo. Hell, sitting outside the top 10 are very good fighters such as Luiz Cane, Ryan Bader, Chuck Liddell, Tito Ortiz, Keith Jardine, Matt Hamill, and Brandon Vera.

Yeah I have seen him, and he doesn't look like a good fighter, but thats just from looks, but when he enters that cage he is one bad dude. I like watching his fights.
I am starting to get into MMA and after seeing the ultimate fighter I can't wait to see Tito against Chuck. I always liked Tito because he has that cockiness, and I like that in fighters, but yeah their light heavyweight is a fun division to watch. I know I can't wait for Rampage and Evans, and I hope Rampage wins cause he is my favorite in MMA right now.
Oh okay I was wondering what happen in that fight cause I like Frank Mir he seems like a good fighter, but these past two fights he has just been whooped. I know he put on some good muscle though to face Carwin though.
Frank had a great outing against Cheick Kongo in his last fight before this one. He basically read Cheick standing, landed a hard left hook, dropped Cheick, then hopped on him for the fight-ending guillotine. He's still one of the very best Heavyweights in the world, just neds to clean some things up before successfully defeating the likes of Lesnar and Carwin.
As far as Anderson goes, the only fight I'm interested seeing him in at 185, is against Vitor Belfort. If he were to beat Vitor, there'd be essentially no challenge left for him at 185, and he'd have to move up and fight at 205. Dude walks around at 220 pounds anyway and can easily fight at 205. I'm really interested in fights against Shogun, Rashad, Rampage and Couture. It's a shame he won't ever fights Machida and Lil' Nog. Hell, he'd provide some interesting fights at Heavyweight.
I could see why Spider would not fight Shogun and those guys though, they walk around even heavier normally, Even when Spider fought Irvin he did look a little small...GSP/Spider is the dream fight i want to see...
I heard a rumor that he was 230 pounds when he fought Irvin. In any event, he's easily big enough to fight at 205. He's not too lean between fights either, so it's not like he has to cut too much muscle to make 205. However, he may be too big for GSP. He can fight Shogun too, that's a fight I've love to see. He refuses to fight Lil Nog and Machida though since they're long time training partners.
On another note, Facts, you always pop up in every MMA discussion, why don't you make picks for UFC shows? Even Bigs makes picks for the shows, and getting him to watch some MMA is like getting Catholic priests to stop fucking pre-adolescent boys.

Yeah I am doubting his skills at all. I liked Silva till 112 I don't understand why he did that. He could have showed him up by knocking him out, not making fun of the sport pretty much with his display.
Also yeah I love GSP he is my second favorite fighter after Rampage.
