Good win for Silva, but this guy has some of the slowest punches I've ever seen. Every time he was in an exchange, it looked like he was in slow motion. Fortunately for him though, he's a really big guy so the punches are gonna have some power behind them either way.

Anyone else see his big punch toward the end coming from a mile away? Any guy without an injury should have been able to avoid that quite easily. Although, it's not like Travis was doing much better before the injury.

Bigfoot was landing leather on Fedor constantly, so I don't think his punches are THAT easy to avoid.

I'm referring to the big punch he landed on Travis toward the end being the one that shouldn't have been hard to avoid, not every punch in general. Yes, his striking is slow, but it's not bad.

I suppose it was slow enough but when you're on the cage you will leave yourself opened to a shot or two. Obviously Browne's knee would be taken to account with the finish though.

Bigfoot's a lot better than people say though. The fact that he has a submission game is ridiculous for a guy of his size, and his grappling is good aswell. Add this to how powerful his punches are, and he makes for a pretty good fighter.

Brown backpaddled after an uppercut by Silva and bumped into the fence. In that situation he wasn't really free to move, regadless of his knee. So it would have been hard for anyone to react and avoid that punch. And while his punches look a little slow, he covers quite some distance with them. Those guys are no flyweights, they have a lot of mass to accelerate when they want to get out of the way.

What does look weird in my eyes are Silva's GnP punches with his extended arms without bending his elbows. It looks somewhat uncontrolled to me.

Bigfoot's counter on one of Browne's stupid kicks at the start was pretty damn fast actually.

With the GnP comment above, I'd love to see Bigfoot fight a real Jitz guy. He has good submission attacks himself, and although I havent seen the Werdum fight I dont think he's been put any real submission predicaments. A big guy like that is strange to have BJJ in his game, so it would be good to see just how good it is.

I hope they don't feed him Struve though

BIGFOOT VS MIR!!!!!

Happy for bigfoot. But I think he is still a gatekeeper. Sort of like Kongo.

He is sorta well-rounded. But he doesn't destroy you with anything other than size. His striking is solid but on the slow side. His wrestling is average. His BJJ, while a blackbelt, he isn't going to go out and sub anyone decent. More of defensive knowledge.

I think he lacks power for such a big guy. That should be his best weapon really. Browne backpeddled on a broken knee and had no defense to get out of the way. He went backwards and couldn't get his feet under himself. Bigfoot landed a shot that was wide open. Almost a free shot really. And Browne didn't really go out. He peppered Fedor and bloodied him, but didn't put him out. He obviously has power, but not as much as you would expect.

Bigfoot/Mir would be a competitive match I think.

Bigfoot/Struve is a solid fight.

Bigfoot/Kongo makes sense.

His lack of power comes from a pretty bad striking technique. On the ground he doesn't pick his shots, but rains down untechnical donkey kong punches. He sat on Emelianenko for the most of two rounds in full mount, but couldn't push the off-switch.

40lbs lighter Dos Santos generates more power with his punches due to his much superior striking technique.

I agree, Silva is a gatekeeper. I think all three of your suggested fights would be quite tough for him.

He beats Kongo with cage control in a VERY boring fight.
He beats Struve by horrible knockout but it's a fight that makes sense.
Mir is the best challenge for him out there. FX main eventer too.
