This is quite possibly THE craziest thread I've seen on here, not just the OP but some of the replies are truly AMAZING.


To even suggest that Anderson silva could last more than a round, never mind beat Shane Carwin is ludicrous. Other than a flash KO, which by the way, even JDS couldn't couldn't manage is beyond crazy.

Shane Carwin would drag Anderson to the ground and literally KILL him down there. That's if he didn't knock him out on the feet first.

As noted Carwin took JDS to a decision so I doubt AS is going to ko Carwin. If Sonnen can rock Anderson IMO odds are Shane could hurt him too and probibly a lot worse. I don't see Anderson being able to survive if that happened.

If Anderson was fighting Shane I would bet on anderson. I don't think it is even close to crazy to think Anderson could knock Carwin out. Anderson is a big dude, and could easily come in at 205-210. The amount of skill and technique that Anderson has on Carwin is astounding. Carwin truly is an amatuer striker compared to Anderson. I give Carwin better than a punchers chance do to the size, but it's all about wrestling here. Carwin can get him down the it's gonna be bad for Andy. But if Carwin strikes for even a bit I think it is lights out.

I mean if Manhoef can KO Hunt...

Carwin's an engineer, not an idiot. He'd stand with Andy for all of zero seconds

Unless he eats Anderson Silva's foot to the face before he even gets close.

I really do think some of you live vicariously through your heroes in some fantasy land. If Anderson fought Roy Nelson it would look like the Kimbo fight. Roy would pin him down & smash him. If it was against Carwin he would get clinched up against the cage & ko'd in 3 or 4 punches like Mir was. Silva would lose to bones the same way Machida did. I think he could beat kongo etc. but not the elite like Cain, Carwin, AO, JDS, or Mir. Smh at some of you because some of your opinions have no intelligence behind them.

Why all the hate? I'm just saying that it is possible Anderson Silva could win. It is also possible the size of these guys would be too much and he would get taken down and smashed.

The thing I don't see some of you guys acknowledging is that you don't need to be 250 lbs to knock someone that big out. Weighing more does not make your chin better, it makes you hit harder. Anderson Silva not only hits hard but with amazing accuracy. To completely count him out because of 50lbs of muscle, or in Nelsons case fat, is pretty silly.

I'd still like to believe that to a degree skill > size. Again not saying he would win, just that he could, and against Nelson or Carwin I would bet on Silva.

If you truly believe that in your heart then I respect that opinion but I would love to take your bet if it actually happened.

Literally the only difference in size is the fact that Roy is fat as hell. If this were true everyone would put on as much weight as possible because then you can just magically get takedowns and pound out fighters that are the same size, but without the belly.

Chael Sonnen didn't have the top control to pound out Silva. Chael is stronger and a much better wrestler than Roy. This is completely insane.

there is that one thing... the umm.. oh yeah black belt that Renzo Gracie gave him. Just stop with this insane fairytale nonsense, literally the only difference is every single aspect of their skillset. Roy Nelson is a talented martial artist, go ahead and hate on him for having a gut I guess. So much ignorance spewing around in one thread.
