If Silva and Fedor fought right now, I think Fedor takes it easy. He has so much more experience. Silva hasn't had to stand face to face with someone as talented as Fedor.

Ok, ok, new idea: Brock Lesnar vs Antonio Silva for the official title of "the next big thing" at HW.




What a stud

I think you're going a little over the top with this 'perfect HW' nonsense. Like I said before, Silva needs to fight legit opponents before I'll jump on his bandwagon. Until then, he's simply potential/hype.
I'm not talking about intelligence man. I'm talking pure physical tools. Antonio Silva has more physical tools than Fedor.

Fedor is far more experienced and has more ring smarts than Antonio. He is also more skilled since he has been training longer and right now is much more of a finished product than Antonio.

Antonio basically has it all. I don't know what you can't see. He has shown a strong ground game but also has room for improvment. His stand up is solid and he can defiantly improve. He is tall. He is strong. I honestly don't see a hole he has as much strength as you can put in a 265 body. He is also tall. Physically he is basically a perfect HW he needs to grow his skills.

Yes, and Fedor has beaten some very good fighters like Cro Cop and Nogueira 2x. Antonio Silva has beaten slobs and cans.

Do you guys realise that Antonio Silva has the condition which is called, Gigantism. That is why he had the tumour removed from his Pituitary Gland a few months ago. If you guys knew anything about Gigantism, you would know that people with gigantism have weak muscles in comparison to its size.

I dont know where you got it that hes the perfect HW. The perfect HW wouldn't be someone with gigantism, it would be someone who is naturally that size.

No one is saying he is the top ranked HW in this thread. Gary Shaw thinks so but he's crazy. What we are saying is that tool wise he is a great HW.

Also Antonio Silva has shown strength in his fights so while I don't think he is Jeff Monson, He looks to have as much strength as the other top HW's.
