    According to Sherdog, these are the top fighters in the UFC MW division:

    Bisping
    Belcher
    Weidman
    Sonnen
    Boetsch
    Munoz
    Belfort
    Okami
    Stann
    Lombard
    Shields

    Who do you think has the biggest chance of upsetting the champion?

    My top 3 will be:

    1. Belfort - Has the most power/speed to hurt Silva standing. Also has decent strength and submission skills to threaten Silva if they were to clinch.
    2. Weidman - Has shown improved stand-up and has pretty good takedowns.
    3. Lombard - Pretty much same as Belfort but with less experience with big fights and still rather unproven in the UFC.

    I don't think those are the #2,3,4 fighters in the MW division, but they have the best chances at Anderson Silva.

    By the way, I omitted Sonnen because I doubt they will let him fight Silva again. UNLESS he managed to beat Jones.

    1)Anderson clone
    2)Anderson clone
    3) Bisping, Weidman and Lombard all at once could ( perhaps, maybe, perchance, probably, conceivably, feasibly) pose a threat to his throne.

    1. Lombard
    2. Shields
    3. Weidman

    AS would most probably finish them all comfortably (along with every other MW) but the Lombard match up really interests me, I think he may be able to give him a tough fight.

    1. Age
    2. Willingness to compete
    3. Sudden accidental demise

    Really, no one at MW is a danger, barring maaaaaaaybe Weidman if he gets a bit more experience and stays healthy.

    Weidman.Thats it.

    It what world can Bisping finish Anderson? He couldnt finish Stann or a gassed Mayhem.

    Still think Sonnen should have stayed at MW. He had fights with Belfort, Lombard, Wandy that could headline any UFC PPV.

    anyone putting shields I'm not taking seriously

    1.weidman- I think he's a lil over rated
    2.Lombard- killer speed and power in his hands
    3.Tie- Bisping / Rockhold both well rounded fighters and Improve each time out
