All I know is that the winner of this fight is going to look mighty impressive, whoever that may be.

I'm glad I'm not emotionally invested in either fighter like you two poor saps above me ( ) so I can really enjoy this fight; these two are ridiculously talented in very different ways.
Yeah its going to suck for me if Kim loses, even more so if its a close decision. Either way this will be a fun fight.

I think Kim wins this fight, I see him taking Silva down and working for subs, using his top control and using his GnP to win this fight by UD or could be a SD.

Kim could win this fight if he commits to the sub more than he normally does, but he probably won't because he does not like to give up position.

Silva is a more powerful and explosive striker and could finish it standing. I think people are look back too much at the Condit fight. Kim's striking has improved a lot since then, he is much better at keeping distance.
