You know Wandy is going to try his best to put on a show, win or lose. And I can just see people saying "See, I told you Anderson is not boring" after the fight.
I think Wandy could win, but I would definitely favor Anderson. It would be a war, but it would probably end quickly either way.

Okami should be a lot better fight because I think there's some bad blood there. I'm not sure why though. I just remember that Anderson kept going after Okami and the ref had to hold him back then Anderson got pissed as hell and started talking ****.
Then the whole Wanderlei thing. Wandy had some harsh words for Anderson last week. If Wanderlei can somehow beat Rich Franklin in a dramatic fashion (and not get KTFO himself) I think he should get consideration for a shot at Anderson just because it would be such a big fight.
I think the smack talk and bad blood from those two fights would light a fire under Anderson's ass and not have him doing lame dances for 25 minutes against an opponent that is obviously afraid to stand.
GSP vs. Alves is going to be GSP's toughest to date IMO. BJ Penn couldn't match his size or strength so that wasn't as tough of a fight as some were thinking it would be.
Alves is a lot bigger and a little stronger than GSP and isn't going to be taken down so easily. GSP is probably going to have to stand with him for a couple of rounds and hopes that Alves gases out. But I have a lot of confidence in Greg Jackson's ability to get GSP ready for this fight.
One thing is for sure, if GSP wins this one in a dominating fashion he needs to be the #1 P4P in the world. Especially after Anderson's last two snoozefests of wins and after GSP dominated Penn like he did. The only other argument I could see would be Fedor if he dominates Barnett or whoever his opponent is this summer.

Cane sounds like a good fight, although I don't know if the UFC would want to deter one of their sound prospects.
I'd like to see Shogun get another fight in before getting Silva. Let him get back in to really good shape. A prime Shogun is just as creative as Silva. This seems like a fight Dana would find a reason to put on. I think he offered Shogun a chance at Chuck after the Coleman fight because he thought Chuck would blast him through the arena. Wrong. However, he should realize Shogun is too marketable, and a fight with Silva could be a lose/lose situation for the company.
Rampage? Hell yeah. But we all know he's healing up to take on the winner of the championship fight.
Rashad and Anderson could be a good fight, but the likelihood of him getting tagged to death is high. I still think Evans poses a serious threat with those newly-found missiles. But if Forrest avoided them, Anderson probably can.
What's up with Rampage anyway...did he have his surgery yet?
and given the fact that fedor has defeated top 5 competition in his last 2 fights in less than 5 combined minutes. he remains top dog on my list

DC Sports: The Curse Is Real
It's still a toss-up between the two for me. Right Now I have Fedor as the top guy but a dominating win over Alves would probably push GSP over the top for me. The Serra loss was two years ago and he came back and totally dominated Serra in the rematch. No one held onto Anderson's flying heel-hook loss to Ryo Chonan like they have to the Serra loss for GSP and Anderson never avenged that loss.
The only problem I have with Fedor is that he fought a lot of scrubs between the last Cro Cop bout and Tim Sylvia. Hong-Man-Choi, Zulu, Matt Lindland (not that he sucks but he has no business at HW) etc.
But like you said Fedor has been very dominant over top-ten guys in his last two fights. If he does the same to Barnett then I think it's going to be tough to choose between he and GSP.
If GSP wins I think they set up Silva-GSP right away. They alluded to it in the post fight presser. Someone said something about GSP needing to take care of business. GSP has nobody at 170 to fight him after Alves.
Extremeskins UFC Undisputed Champion Xbox ID: Sebowski77. Just bring it.
I went to Gamestop and picked up the demo for UFC Undisputed yesterday, much to talk about.
Most notable thing, right off the bat, the fight clock is around 2x faster than normal. Rounds are roughly 2 1/2 minutes long. This is probably due to the fact that there seems to be a high probability of flash KOs. Out of 30 fights, I've only gone the distance twice. Both times I've had to stall on the ground and backpedal on the feet.
Whether or not the pressed action is to your liking, it's certainly fast paced.
Second thing to talk about is the complexity. I can already see gamers rushing to deem this game "bad" if they go in to it without knowing what to do. The tutorial is a must, an absolute must. Did I mention it's a must? It's a MUST. You'll probably have to go through it a few times, as well. The first thing I did when I downloaded the demo was have a fight. I almost concluded right there that this would end up being a little disappointing. After going through every part of the tutorial a couple times, I have a newly found anxiety for this game to come out.
You can only play as Chuck or Shogun. It's a big tease but their styles clash enough to get a taste of just about every style but Judo.
Submissions are mostly won and lost by pressing any button rapidly, coinciding with your fighter's skills on the ground. I assume some people won't like that.
Bottom line, you quite literally have to do the tutorial. It's probably the only game I've ever come across that it's pretty much required.
The graphics are very good, Shogun and Chuck's faces look frighteningly accurate. The ring girls' boobies bounce when walking around, and Buffer/Yamasaki are on target.
As far as the commentating by Rogan and Goldie, it's great. Not a lot of repetitive calls, and fast reactions as what is happening in the fight. You can tell they put a lot in to that aspect of the game.
I don't think I've ever been impressed with the way the crowd looks in a fighting game. Same goes with UFC Undisputed's crowd. Just a generic looking crowd, and it looks like everyone is a bit spread apart. Maybe they're trying to mimic an undercard bout. Not impressed with this part of the performance. The crowd sounds nice, at least.
I know it's almost meaningless to grade a demo, but I've downloaded my share of them and this one stands out as the best so far. It gets an A. This will be a hard game to learn, so get the demo now and be prepared when it comes out.

Any chance they'll make it for wii?
Can't wait to play this demo when it hits XBL. I've been reading these reviews and all of them are like "this game rocks once you learn it, especially the ground game". I can't wait to try out different fighters.
Did they get their styles right? Like, does Chuck stand with that very open wide stance, or do they look similar when standing?
