If Leites wins i think that would envoke a title shot.....I dont anyone else in that division at this point that would be a contender for Silva....

Leites by SUB he is the only challenger for Anderson right now since Okami is gone and Henderson doesn't want to drop unless they want to throw Kampmann in there coming out of surgery

WTF does that mean?

There are 3 sleepers in the MW division and Leites is imho the best of them (Drew and Kampman are the others), he has the style to beat Silva and i think he will sub Nate in this fight and hopefully get a title shot with it
