1. Randy Couture
(Anderson Silva by KO / R2. Couture is getting old and he would get caught in the clinch with knees and elbows if he decides to dirty box with Silva.)

2. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
(Nogueira by Submission / R3. It would be a tough fight for Nogueira since Silva is way better standing but after a lot of punishment he would get him down and catch him in a Guillotine or an Armbar.)

3. Brock Lesnar
(Anderson Silva by KO / R1. Lesnar has never dealt with such a well rounded fighter and also dangerous fighter like Anderson Silva.)

4. Fabricio Werdum
(Werdum by Submission / R2. Werdum is obviously way better than Silva at BJJ top or bottom but getting him down would be the question. It would be a long hard fight for both but Werdum catches him some type of choke.)

5. Cheick Kongo
(Kongo by TKO/KO R2. Cheick is way better standing + KO Power and actually has explosive take downs. Anderson Silva would get beat in the stand up and try to go for a take down after 10 minutes, that's when Kongo catches him. If not, he gets overwhelmed standing.)

6. Antoni Hardonk
(Same story above. TKO/KO R2)

7. Cain Velasquez
(Hard to Call.)

8. Gabriel Gonzaga
(Anderson Silva by TKO / R1.) Gonzaga is outclassed standing and can't do anything to Silva on the ground because The Spider has enough defensive BJJ.)

9. Tim Sylvia
(Anderson Silva by Unanimous Decision OR Submission. Sylvia would get outstruck worse than his fight with Couture.)

10. Andrei Arlovski
(Arlovski by Unanimous Decision. He would be way too defensive in this bout if he's fighting a better striker or grappler than himself. He would hit and run for 3 Rounds trying not to get hit.
