I guess thats all it takes, 1 good shot in the right place and its over, which goes to prove it could be anyones fight, really. Except Monson is really aggressive in his fights and I can bet just about anything he'll rush right in on Silvia and take him down (or try to)
I dont think Silvia will be prepared for an immediate takedown
,. probably figures on a standup for awhile. Except Monson knows the reach advantage is too great, so the takedown has to happen, the clinch at the bvery least. And he hits JUSt as hard, or damn close.
Monson 1st round GNP 2nd for sure
I'm sure Militich has Silvia training take down defense with Hughes (5'9" as is Monson) doing the shooting.
