It could be a good fight. I think Antonio Silva has earned a step up in competition and Fedor just lost so it is good for all parties concerned.

Silva is coming off of big wins over Arlovski and Kyle. With that being said, Fedor is going to be a humongous test for Silva. I think he could pull it off, but I think the odds are definitely in Fedor's favor here.

If it stays standing Fedor likely wins explosively, but if Silva goes in drags him to the ground and uses his size to bully Fedor to the fence he could win via GnP.

Silva can't upset fedor because fedor never changes his mood.


Get it ?

He has a solid ground game.
Did I misread your post... or did you say Bigfoot has the advantage on the ground?

Fedor will definitely win this fight where ever he wants. Silva is definitely a great fighter but his ground game is less than spectacular. I doubt he could submit or GnP Fedor to inflict significant damage.

I think bigfoot is the most under appreciated guy in the tournament.

I never bet against fedor but, I remember how much trouble Rogers gave him. I look at Silva I see bigger, stronger, more skilled than Rogers.

I think the winner definitely makes the finals.

I keep watching the brief standup exchange Werdum and Fedor had. Werdum was tooling Silva standing for fifteen minutes. It's really hard to say how this fight will go because it depends on how Fedor shows up.



Are we going to see the Fedor from Zulu, Nog, CroCop etc? Or the "sleepy lizard" Fedor that showed up for Rogers?



I think either way Fedor wins but it might be an unimpressive win. Sort of like when Mousasi mailed it in against Sokoudjou, sure he got a 2nd round TKO but he definitely didn't look great.

You're probably thinking of Anderson Silva.

No mate, check my profile, FEDOR is still the #1 P2P fighter in the world, #2 is Anderson

terpgrad07 has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I see no reason that Fedor should lose this fight... except unless he falls asleep and turns into a lizard.

As Intermission points out, I meant you were must be thinking of a different Silva (likely Anderson) when you told the thread starter that Silva and Fedor were in different weight classes. They are not.



That's Silva on the left, punching Arlovski in the face. He's a HW, just like Fedor, and he is going to be fighting Fedor in the first round of the HW Grand Prix on Saturday.
