Dont avoid the question, the reason he was so powerful last time was because of illegal substances, he was punished heavily so I doubt he'll take that risk again.

Sure Thiago is still a powerful guy, but Gustaf is the better fighter. I guarantee you, the top fighters in the division are keeping an eye on Gustaf. He's big, very agile, skills are obvious and he carries nasty power in his hands. He's a bad fight for any of them, and Thiago IMO is nowhere near their level.

I'm not sure why so many people think he is.

I cant believe people are cheering for a up and comer against a guy that has only been defeated by 2 of the top 5 lhw's.

Thiago silva by anything he wants.

Anyone up for a bet?

Exactly. He's fought two of the current 6 or so top guys, and lost both fights. Yet you're acting like he's beaten top guys.

Seeing Gustaf fight, he doesn't need to have top names on his record yet to show that he's a force and future contender.

This is going to be an awesome fight !!

Its is also going to be closer than you guys think, the longer it goes on the better for Gustaf, i think if Silva wins he will have to clip Alex early.

Really weird picture of Gustaf. That doesn't even look like him.

Thiago is in no shape or form a top contender. Who has he beaten? a Jardine who couldn't string together more than one win at a time.....

He's basically a 205 lb Rousimar Palhares.

He's a dirty fighter who looks scary and beats up on cans but when he has to fight some elite fighters he gets beat.

I don't know... I'll be cheering for Gusto, he's been training a lot with Phil Davis and that's a very smart move for him...but... Silva has had a lot of back problems in the past... I think he's being underestimated.

He's a bad man in the mount and if he gets it..... we'll see how much Davis helped I guess.

Jardin and alexander were both top 10 (alexander maybe almost) when defeated them, jardin came from a war with rampage and beating chuck. Im not saying they were legimit contenders but give them credit their not cans..

Gustafsson's best wins was against a hammil that would retire a few fights later. Davis has proven he isnt ready for the top 5 guys when he fought rashad, and gustafsson's only loss came to the only real kind of threat in davis.And davis didnt stand a chance against rashad, where silva rocked rashad a couple of times.

Sure mma math doesnt work all the time but believe me it will with this one, War SILVA.

Thiago nearly knocked out Rashad Evans he had him rocked in their fight !!! Rashad just dry humped him for 3 rounds but was getting tagged in the standup, the only loss which he was dominated in was the Machida fight.
