I'd say it would be Anderson/Cain in the finals, and I'd favor Anderson.

I'd favor Bones, possibly even Hendo and Shogun, over JDS.

Real small guys, under 170, probably wouldn't be competitive unless it would be Bendo. Still, I don't see anyone being a force who fights under 185 other than perhaps GSP, who could beat Silva but would get smashed by Cain.

QUOTE(#4):

JDS or Cain are sooooo much bigger. And Silva is my favorite fighter.

Not really.

Remember, he looked the same size as Forest when they fought, and Griffin cuts from 235 or so. Forest isn't much smaller than either of them.

Anderson's eye to eye with both of them, better reach than Cain. And his vastly superior kicks would come into play against a guy in JDS who throws nothing but punches.

I don't think a Silva/Dos Santos fight would even be competitive.

QUOTE(#7):

Yes. JDS would stalk forward and throw bombs until Anderson dropped.

No way. Anderson has the best movement in the division.

Give him a super predictable striker like JDS and watch him go to work.

Jon Jones/Anderson/Cain.

I still wouldn't favor DS over any of them, including Cain.
