You really don't think Roy couldn't take Anderson down once he got his hands on him? Seriously!? Do you not realize how strong he is? do you really think Roy wouldn't flatten him like Kimbo? Roy is strong, durable, & talented. Once he got him down & he would its all over. He would lay on him & smash him. 205 & down Anderson is king but he would get mauled by the big boys.

Please. As I said Anderson is actually bigger than Roy. Roy is just fat. He isn't a good wrestler. He doesn't have good takedowns, and he has poor cardio. If they let Roy fight at 185 I don't think he'd crack the top 5.

No, he looked awful. The fight was a complete mismatch.

Roy isn't just fat, there's some serious muscle underneath that belly.


Fedor, Mir, Lytle, Serra, Hendo, Chuck, Minowaman, Maynard, Forrest, Hunt
Pickett, Cerrone, Matt Brown, Bisping, Weidman, Barnett, Lawler

He would be top 10. He would beat 5 or 6 of the top 10 HWs.

Put it this way. I have no doubt in my mind he would tool Big Nog if they went hard in training. Yet, Nog absolutely handled Frank Mir who is like top 7 HW for a whole fight until he tried to get too cute by subbing him. He dominated Mir up until then. And I think Anderson would dominate Big Nog.

He would beat at least half of the top 10 HWs. He would come in at about 230 and only be giving most of these guys 15-30lbs.

Dominating Mir is not shocking, Andy could beat Mir. I would expect him to anyway.

I didnt say Carwin is a better striker, I meant I wouldn't be surprised if he dropped 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...
Anderson could only dream of having the power that Manhoef has. he is the Mike Tyson of MMA/K-1



You would see Anderson shooting for doubles if he fought Manheof barring a hail mary punch like Robbie but even then, Anderson doesn't hit as hard as Lawler.


Oh and i love how everyone is raving on about Anderson being able to use his speed and foot work to avoid getting taken down but when the question of a pro boxer fighting an MMA fighter is brought up everyone immediately says "oh well an MMA fighter would just take him down" despite the fact that Boxers have much better footwork and are faster then MMA fighters.

For the record i think that an MMA fighter would take a boxer down and have his way with him(most of the time) but i guess that some people must think there is some sort of magical MMA style footwork that only Anderson knows.

I can't argue there, Manhoef is probably the hardest striker in mma for his size.
