...I often wondered how Anderson would do in K-1 or something. Silva's Muay Thai is perhaps the best in MMA. On the feet, Sonnen would get pounced badly. Anderson is at or near the top in head & foot movement. The best in timing his strikes. The most accurate striker in UFC history. List goes on. When they meet, it's not just kickboxing. Chael's Takedowns are some of the very best. It's his greatest strength. Something that can change any outcome in a fight. Without question Chael's Takedowns pose the biggest threat to Anderson...

What does that have to do with the WWE???

You realize Kickboxing, Amateur Wrestling and Submission Grappling matches are legit sports?? All 3 are also involved in the training of an MMA fighter. Having some fighters go against one another in them and us being able to watch it would be great. Id love to see Maia and Palhares in a Sub Grappling match or Chael and Munoz in a wrestling match (Part 2). And there is many many more i could think of that would be really interesting to see how it would turn out. Plus it would help fighters stay busy and make some extra cash.

Im not saying its a realistic idea BUT it has nothing whatsoever to do with the WWE especially since none of those sports are fake. And there are alot of matchups that would be more interesting in these scenarios then they would be in MMA. And i know people would be interested to see who would win these things. Why you compared it to the WWE is confusing. Im giving you the benefit of the doubt that you know those sports arnt fake unlike the WWE.

Really think down the line they're going to diagnose em as borderline.

Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

I was aiming at the idea of this out of three falls idea. I'm kind of aware that those sports are not fake. In fact I competed in two of those three, so how about you cut the condescending attitude.

Life B Ez - how is it being best 2 out of 3 make it like the WWE? He was proposing a 3 round competition - like mma is now - with one round of kickboxing, one round of bjj, and one round of wrestling. There's really nothing WWE about that. It sounds interesting in an exhibition kind of way.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

Haha I know he's only trolling but that is a fight I would pay alot to see. Silva by Sonnen crying, bleeding, and pooping himself at the same time.
