To quote Mr. Irvin, "there's weight classes for a reason."
You just listed 5 of the top Heavyweights in the world and said they would lose to Silva, and then said he can't fight heavyweights
Brock has nearly 100 pounds on him, which is clearly an advantage, but he would have to bullrush it to the ground and just lay on him.
