i definitely think silva would have beaten shogun, too. not only that, but i think silva would've finished him quicker. i was never completely sold on the shogun hype.
and to the post above yours, jbj hit shogun with that same front kick at least 3 times.
anderson does have deadly accuracy, and i would love to see him ko jbj.
sadly it would never happen if it does a 38 year old silva vs a 25 year old jones seems very unfair. Then it begs for the question would a 33-35 year old silva beat jones. I'm still amaze how silva is this good this late.
