Granted, Silva did do very well against Antonio Nogueira, he is a much improved fighter, but not enough IMO.




Dont I remember evryone going on about Crocop as 'invincible', same with Arlovski, and Hughes, and Couture, and Liddel and Anderson Sylva and ..........
Every fighter has something that another has the tools to exploit- its a puzzle, and once one person has 'solved' it, then you tend to find others follow in their path.

When 2 guys stand face to face and start swinging, its a 50/50 situation, and to blanket refuse to consider that Sylvia may be the guy with the 'code' to unlock Fedor, is just flying in the face of sense.





Silva obviously has a chance to win, doesn't mean I can't pick who I think is going to win

Absolutely. The thing that amuses me, is that Sylvia has caused more fight fans to eat more crow than any other fighter.
The list of fighters that 'should' have beaten him easily is a longer than one of his arms, and yet this 'talentless', 'fat' and 'lucky' fighter has overcome some pretty impressive would be conquerors. He may be the biggest, best, most consistently successful underdog in history, and for some reason, that annoys the sh1t out of people!

If it goes to the ground Fedor has got it. Although if it stays standing Tim's hand speed and reach advantage is a lot to handle. Tim Silvia is a good big fighter, Fedor hasn't fought anyone with his skills and size before. He has fought big guys but none as skilled as Tim Silvia. I will be the first to admit I don't like Time Silvia his fights bore me. But I think its going to be a great battle.

I think Fedor's got Silvia. I can see Fedor having trouble striking with Silvia, but I'm sure it will go to the ground. I can't see Silvia gettin back up when Fedor's got him on the ground. But I would like Silvia to win.

I think fedor will get shredded for a while, but then it will go to the ground and silvia will be toast.

Not sure how fedor will stand up to silvia slug wise.

and i think i [censored] the date up, its next 20th

Yep, and Fedor showed just recently with Hong Man Choi that size is not a problem for him. With Silvia he will have a far easier time with getting takedowns and such like. I expect Fedor to have the chance to work from the top and unleash some vicious ground and pound.

I don't want to underestimate Silvia, because I think the guy has pretty good takedown defense, but Fedor has much better takedowns than Noguiera and probably better stand-up too.

We will see, but there is no doubt that Silvia is the underdog, which is nothing new for him! Should be a good bout, and a good test for Fedor, let's face it he hasn't exactly been competing with the top tier of mma for the last couple of years.

Silvia is definitely not getting up once he's down. Remember Jeff Monson kept Silvia on the ground once he got him there, and while Monson is no slouch I don't think he is as good as Fedor.

That's so WRONG! LoL,

But thinking of which he has got the lock in perfectly. No way big boss will be able to get out of that.
