But having a guy like Filho on top of you is alot different than havin Travis Lutter on top of you.
Filho might be a bad match up for Silva but perhaps Anderson would be able to fight him from his back. If you think about it great striking + great bjj is as good as great striking + a great sprawl.
I still think both Filho, Lindland, and hendo are bad match ups for Silva, Silva is a bad match for Kang and Franklin(obviously), Hendo and Lindland are bad match ups for Filho. So I guess that leaves the Team Quest boys battling it out for number one according to that analogy but I dont I think I'd still put Filho at #1. This weights impossible to rank.
