Akiyama is getting older and quite clearly isn't as motivated as he was when he first came to ufc. The lack of trainig is showing off, so I think UFC just wants to get rid of him since they're paying him quite the amount of money.

Humiliate him by giving him fights he should win based on his reputation?If he cant win these kind of fights (Leben, Bisping especially!) then maybe he doesnt deserve to be in the UFC.

Agreed man, but...Its because MW is the bummiest division. Chael almost beats Anderson, yes he got subbed by Maia. Maia loses to Mark Munoz, and now he is fighting Leben. Leben beat Vanderlie, but got KTFO by Brian Stann. Now Stann is fighting Chael.And the bum merrygoround starts all over again. Meanwhile the Champ of MW is the most talentted and technical fighter on the planet!And yet they want Anderson to fight the WW champ who decisions everytime!?FACE PALM!!!!

WAR BELFORTHe might never be able to beat Anderson, but I sure as hell would like to see him try again.

Damn it I like both of these guys. Might have to pull for Akiyama in this one so he can stay in the UFC.
