That's a pretty laughable post if you ask me. "Silva is the most talented HW in the world." Was that sarcasm? Also, why weren't you guys in the Brock Lesnar thread going on about how he is the next top HW in the world since he's strong, athletic, and moves well as a HW?

We haven't seen enough to know Lesner's potential, but Silva has done enough where you can see what he's capable off.

I don't really see how it's laughable, since everything I have said is true. He moves well for a guy his size, trains with a great camp, is a solid striker, and has a solid ground game. With some more training, he will be a huge force.

Also, you know what's laughable? Fedor declining to fight Silva, and then fighting a MW. Seems like Fedor knows that Antonio Silva is a beast. That Fedor, willing to fight everyone.

Also, Brock Lesnar hasn't shown me anything, so I really have no clue what you're babbling about. He beat Min Soo Kim, who sucks, hardly anything worthwhile.

We don't know what Silva is made of until he fights someone of high caliber. He could be the next big thing or he could get whomped by the top dogs. I'll be following his next fights closely, and hope he faces off against someone who will test him.

So, how did you come to the conclusion that he's the most talented HW? Maybe you're just confused about the difference between talent and potential.

Talent = Bj Penn. Potential = Brock Lesnar. Silva does not rely on his technical tools, he relies on his size, strength, and quickness. That's called athleticism. His game is not developed enough for him to be the most talented HW in the world, I don't understand how you can even believe that for a second.

Antonio Silva has natural talent. He is skilled at BJJ, and has strong stand up. He is has more natural talent then anyone in the HW divison. BJ Penn is talented just like Antonio is. BJ just has far better techinique.

Not exactly true. See, for him to throw solid strikes, and use his ground game, he has to have talent. To be able to smoke guys, he has to have talent. Being big won't cut it, because Bob Sapp is big, and he sucks. Same goes for guys like Emmanuel Yarborough.

Name 1 who is more talented. Name one who has the size, skill, and speed that Antonio Silva does.

Here's the thing about being the best HW in the world: Fedor wants to avoid this guy like the plague, because he knows he has the potential to get whomped hard by this guy. Instead of fighting Silva, he fights Matt Lindland, who is a MW. That should tell you that Fedor wants nothing to do with this guy. We'll never see Fedor vs Silva simply because Fedor's too busy fighting boxers and MW's.

Him in comparison to Cabbage:


Arlovski in comparison to Cabbage:


Andrei Arlovski is 6`4 240 pounds, Silva is 6`4 265 pounds, and although I'm unsure how much weight he cuts to get to 265, I'm pretty sure he walks around at closer than 265 than in the past, due to him fighting HW now. Either way, he is not really that big. He kind of reminds me of a big Gabriel Gonzaga. I think Silva has all the potential in the world because he is a big, thick 265 pounder, who is training with a great camp, but he's still a sloppy fighter IMO.
