I think Manhoef would do very well against Silva, but I think height and reach would play a huge factor. I see Manhoef throwing alot more and Silva backpeddling alot and tossing those jabs.

Don't forget, Melvin is a short dude. He is 5"8. He aint exactly going to have any easy time getting into range of A. Silva.

I can see Manhoef winning the first round landing a few clean punches and being very aggressive. As A. Silva frustrates him more and more with the reach/height advantage, controls the ring and makes Manhoef work, and starts landing, I can see Manhoef begin to wilt.

I think on a technical level Manhoef has better hands, but with grappling, legs, and the height/reach thing (6 inches is a lot), I see Silva winning.

Height isn't going to be a big factor, Melvin is used to fighting guys who are a lot taller than him in the GP. He fought Paul Slowinski before he fought Hunt and Paul is 6'4-6'5 and Melvin KO'd him. And training with guys like Hari and Bregy will help because of their height.

I don't think height would be an issue TBH. The only problem I see Manhoef having is cardio cos he has been known to gas before but I's still be very confident picking him to beat Anderson on the feet.

The way I see the fight playing out I say A. Silva making it an issue. Like I said, I see Manhoef winning the initial standup game. But as Anderson figures out his reach and distance I see it becoming a problem. In the later rounds I can see Anderson just out working him with footwork, keeping the distance, and just landing over and over on Manhoef.

That's just what I think is most likely, not trying to say it couldn't go the other way.

Havn't seen the Rivera fight but alot like round Murray vs. Silva in rd 2.

Manhoef is on another level though, but I bet that would be Andersons strategy.

Holy smokes! I'm just catching up on my fights and this is not what I was expecting to come back to. I didn't think it was possible to put Hunt down like that! Manhoef is a beast.

I missed so many bad ass fights. I mean...Manhoef KO's Hunt, Overeem KO's Hari, freakin Mir KO's Nog....holy sh*t!!
