Antonio Silva = #1 Heavyweight in the world?
 
Yes, according to EliteXC president Gary Shaw.

Quote:

“I believe Silva is the No. 1 heavyweight in the world, which is why I wanted to make sure he stayed with us,’’ Shaw said. “If there is a UFC heavyweight or, for that matter, any heavyweight out there that feels they are the best then lets make a match.

“We can do the fight in an Octagon, in the EliteXC cage or any venue. I truly believe ‘Big Foot’ will kick any heavyweight’s butt and look forward to giving him the opportunity to do it.’’

I'm inclined to agree with him. He hasn't been tested yet, that seriously the only knock I can make on Antonio Silva. He has all the tools to dominate the HW Division.

Hes talented and I dont expect him to come out and call him a can but number one? Lets beat someone a tad better then Cabbage and then come out and say that.

Number 1? Not yet, Shaw, but maybe in the future.

Silva is really, really talented and really well-rounded for a guy his size, not mention he moves well, too. He's just a beast, and he's the guy who would beat Fedor.

I would really like to see him and Gabriel Gonzaga fight.

PrideFan123 12-06-2007 05:54 PM

Not #1 yet, but he could be. He has a promising future. I'd like to see Fedor vs Silva.

I don't think the #1 HW in the world would get dropped by Eric Pele. It was a quick stoppage, but dude got rocked.

Damone 12-06-2007 06:37 PM

You learn from your mistakes.
