We are still talking about Anderson Silva, that guy who is leading the knock down statistics in the UFC, aren't we¿

And in all my statements I'm assuming, we're not talking about a 185 lbs Silva fighting the HWs, but a Silva who put on some mass/muscle to be about or a little under Dos Santos weight, so his strikes also gain a little power.

I was assuming people were talking about Anderson Silva 'as is' fighting a HW.

I've been talking about an Anderson weighing between 220 and 230. Hendo even took out Fedor at 206.

And obviously if Carwin took Andy down then he'd be in trouble but really Carwin hasn't demonstrated good MMA wrestling at all.
Cain would take Andy down and beat him to a pulp.

JDS' gameplan would be to stand, you guys all think he'd smash Anderson in a stand up war but I highly doubt that would happen. JDS is similar size to Big Nog.

Exactly. The tone of some people in this thread, essentially calling anybody who believes Silva can beat Carwin delusional. As if the idea is madness.

It's one thing talking about Cain. But Carwin? Come on now. Based on what exactly? When has Carwin ever shown us a decent dynamic takedown? Or decent footwork? Ive seen nothing to believe that Silva couldn't avoid Carwin for 25 minutes if necessary.

Go ahead. Call me insane. But Ive been watching this sport long enough to know that size is not everything.

He wouldn't have to take him down. All he would have to do is get him to the cage & clinch. That's where the power comes in. he would physically manhandle him. Do you people not remember how bad he knocked out mir with just a few punches in the clinch? He only has to touch Anderson a few times.

We are talking about Anderson Silva here and you bring up Mir to try and make a point. How are the two men even remotely comparable? Do you really think a 220 pound Anderson would be a plodding potato sack like Mir?

Somehow, I don't think so.

Shane Carwin indeed...
