Anderson Silva: Top 10 Threats to Silva's UFC Middleweight Title in 2012

UFC middleweight champion, Anderson Silva, is slated to defend his crown for an unprecedented 12th  time this June in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Silva's opponent, Chael Sonnen, will seek to exact revenge on the "Spider," who defeated the No. 1 contender back in 2010.

Sonnen's second run at the middleweight strap is well deserved and will be one of the most intriguing rematches the UFC has ever put on. That said, this rematch does not signify any sort of stagnation in the middleweight division. On the contrary, the 185-pound class is swarming with eager contenders that are forming a line behind Mr. Sonnen.

While Silva is concentrated on disposing of Sonnen for a second time this spring, the challenger is just one of 10 guys who will be vying for his belt before New Year's Day.
