I've seen many in the mma ring getting criticized here.

If you could commit the time to training who would you fight and beat?

From looking at the tuf series I believe I would be a good competitor. I think I have the tenacity it takes to train like a wildman. I think I could beat some of those guys with the training I have now even.

I'd like to fight Tim Silvia. To me, he's just a big slob. His size has gotten him where he is now. Doesn't ever look different. They talk about how tough his training is, well, I don't see it. He is always looking out of shape and gasses easily.

Let me hear how wrong I am.

Yes he looks like a slob but u can't deny the fact that he hits hard. He is one of the top heaveyweights for a reason, it wasnt given to him, he has beaten many good fighters to get where he is. So looks dont mean anything. U can look like a slob, weakling etc and it still dont matter. I dont like Silvia but u gotta give him respect. Not just Silvia but any fighter. Never underestimate any opponent.

Bow out with respect from a TKD/BAGUA MARTIALIST

Heavy weights can look soft but be decieving.

Anyway, its not about who you think you could beat, but what you've actually done.

Thats right man. Everyone can talk but can they back it up. Either way i think this post is really pointless. When it comes to fighting anybody can loose to anyone, it just takes one mistake to capitalize on so the question about who can u beat is pointless. Well it also depends on the how u define beating/winning?..

chris leben. Spends more time crying than training, never looks comfy on the ground. Hits like a girl. Dont like him so i could find the aggression to fight him easily, and i would have a forty pound weight advantage. Sleepy time for leben

Hey Brian, I would have agreed with you up until I saw him fight Noguiera in UFC 81. Gotta admit he looked pretty sharp there!

Thankyou Cordfor actually answering my question.I think you could beat Leben too with the right training.

For everyone else. "It's what you've done." Yes,but being a single father with a fulltime job + overtime and lots of other responsibilities I doub I could compete. Given the opportunit to train full time I would be a good competetitor.

Now, please answer. Sheesh, everyone is so serious.

Matt,

Like I said Sylvia is good because of his size. Otherwise, he's a big,sloppy , and has butter abs.



I think a lot of people could beat that Meeks guy from TUF,lol.

Hey Brian

I don't know if Cord has the show yet in the UK but over here it's called Pro's vs Joe's.

It allows "average Joes" (Generally guys who have done sports all their lives) to compete against "Pro's" (retired and some a bit out of shape). It's quite fun, with the requisite amount of trash talking, but even with the retired Pro's taking it easy, it's apparent that the average guy has nowhere near the ability of a Pro and even less understanding of what the Pro's can actually do.

Most amusing moments so far;

Joe's trying to stop Ricky Williams running at them. One Joe had to quit after being run over (literally) and hurting his neck.

Joe's trying to stop Randy Coture submitting them. After the event and being submitted numerous times, and lets face it Randy isn't a submission specialist, all the Joe's were in the changing rooms saying they'd never experienced pain like that before.

Joe's boxing a 3 minute round with Arturo Gatti. Despite being outweighed considerably by the Joes, he hit one guy with a hook who fell to his knees and couldn't rise, and and another with a body shot that made the guy resemble a sack of potatoes.

And all the Pro's were clearly taking it easy against the Joe's and trying not to hurt them.

I'm sorry fella's but you Joe's are what you are. Joe's, who will never even understand what it takes to compete at the highest levels. You want to step into a ring with someone who's at the top of their game and take them on. Dream on suckers.

Please I want to fight Randy Couture and Rampage Jackson at the same time, 1 guy for each of my fists!

But I second John's comments, unless you have ever been around pro athletes you probably don't have an understanding of good these guys really are. It takes more then just training, you also need the genetic royal flush to compete at an elite level.

I tried to make this point once before and got filleted like a fish on Friday for it...
