HW's are no longer the lumbering people of old where they have bad technique but can knocked you out in one punch if connected. Now the new breed of HW's like Todd Duffee, Cain, Lesnar, JDS, Bigfoot, Carwin etc where guys not only were getting bigger, but stronger, and faster. And now they also have technique to combine with it. They have crisper striking and now also have a ground game. Back in the day a HW couldnt do anything with a ground game and suspect cardio. On the other side of the spectrum, LW's couldnt knock out anybody, but they have great technique and cardio and used that to win.

The lower you go technique becomes more of a factor, the higher you go power becomes more of a factor. Fedor just cant keep up with HW's that are not only getting better physically but having the technique of lower classes. It was like fighting a slow Hippo before, but now its like fighting an Elephant with the speed of a Giraffe.

Yea I don't get it.

He is 34, and just lost 2 in a row. After 10+ years everyone is now saying he needs to switch his camp up and move weight classes.

Yea he didn't move eight in his whole career, what on earth would make you think he is just going to start doing that at this point?

It doesn't say anything. Every fighter is different. And, Silva fights guys that are smaller than him (or at least the same size). Fedor is fighting guys far larger than him which makes his age all the more important.

Plus, Silva just crushed Belfort with a front kick from hell

Tough loss for Fedor.. but imagine what Overeem would have done to him. It's even better that this fight won't ever happen now. It could only end one way for Fedor really!


I believe the difference here is, that Silva is a much more skilled fighter then Fedor, especially standing up. Fedor always liked to bang as well in his career.. but he also almost always took a lot of damage in those fights, because he never was a great standup fighter.

Silva on the other side never even get's hit in the face.. wich is a huge factor here and probably the most important one by far. Fedor took so much punishment in his career.. compared to Silva who was just way too skilled to even get touched in his career.

I think the only time Silva really got punished was against Sonnen of course and maybe his first MMA bout. Other then those two, he never got hit because of his AMAZING Skills.
