Yep, and I think people need to understand that he moves really well for a guy his size, which could pose problems for other HW's. He's still fairly new to the game, but he really does have the potential to be the top HW in the world. ATT is filled with a bunch of studly studs, so I have no doubt that Silva's training in all aspects, in hopes of becoming the fighter we know he can be.

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.
Physically he has the tools, but the mental games is 70% of the fight. He didn't even try to pull guard on Pele after he got rocked, in fact, he stupidly went into slugfest with a Samoan.

Like I said before, size obviously doesn't necessarily equate to an advantage. You completely glossed over the man's cardio as a possible weakness, which is definitely suspect, seeing as few of his fights have actually gone past the first round.

Fedor has never been a big HW, but he's always been fast and a lot of you guys keep saying how Silva is "faster". What did you guys do? Put them on a 100m stretch of road and make them race with a timer?

So many generalizations in this topic are just laughable. Fedor is a proven heavyweight. If this is simply a speculative topic, then I agree that Silva has potential to be a great HW. If the belief of most of you is in this thread's title, then I'm just going to continue laughing.

Once again, lets wait and see him actually get tested against a legit fighter before we start hanging off his giant nutsack.

How is that laughable? MMA is always evolving. I'm sure people thought no one would ever be better than Royce Gracie back when he was winning the early UFC's. Fedor isn't God and he's not unbeatable.

I don't know how it's laughable, I was just saying what people seem to be laughing at.

I'm not laughing at the idea that Fedor can be beaten, as I myself believe that one day he will lose. But to suggest that that a guy who has yet to face a top 10 fighter is "going to be the one to beat Fedor", as you said Damone, is a stretch.

I'm not shitting on Silva's abilities, but my point is that while he has potential, lets see him fight legitimate opponents before we crown him #1, and the man to dethrone Fedor, who is inarguably the most dominant HW fighter to grace the sport.
