As much as i like Liddell, i do think A.Silva would beat him. Why? Chuck's hands are always low. Sure, if he catches yopu with a connect it's lights out, but against someone like A.Silva who's movement and footwork is fantastic AND who dosn't miss with a punch, i could see Chuck going the way of Franklin.
Put it this way - do you think Chuck opuld have dismantled Franklin like that when FRanklin was fighting at 205? I don't.
