BJ definately cant stand with silva

hes no where near overated
he has one weakness his cardio

Okay so no one is arguing BJ's Striking<Anderson's Striking, right?

So then its comes down to BJ's bjj or Anderson's bjj, to me that is more Nog's vs. Penn in the BJJ dept. who here would argue the Nogs bjj is worse than Penn's? Also, long lanky limbs over short stubby limbs on the ground. Lastly who just subbed a guy that has only ever been subbed twice in his career? Thank you.

Finally, cardio I think we can clearly see with that much weight Penn is sucking wind worse than a Jenna Jameson on a hot tub scene. Anderson has yet to gas or look like crap.

I agree that if Penn was naturally bigger it would be a great fight based on skills, but for Penn to put on enough weight to fight at 185 he wouldnt last that many rounds cardio-wise.

As BJ is my favorite fighter so I might be a little biased (although I'm a Silva fan too).

As far as talent I think BJ is better then anyone in the world. However, I still think he loses to Silva just because of the size advantage. Although in a pure grappling match BJ would stand a good chance of winning.
