0% chance....really. What if Silva swarms Fitch in the first hurts him Frankie Edgar style, drops him a few times but can't finish. Gasses. Fitch comes back strong wins the second and third 10-9. Hmmmmm. draw.

This isn't correct in my book.

He isn't a bigger stronger Erick Silva.

Erick Silva doesn't have T-Rex arms and has a much more diverse striking game. Erick Silva is also much more athletic with more speed. His BJJ game is also better.

Alves was one of the more overrated fighters. He had very good leg kicks. But his hands weren't that impressive. His BJJ was never that impressive. And he gassed often when fights were tough.

I was playing around.

I think Silva has what it takes to put Fitch away or win a decision in a 3 round fight. Won't know for sure until tomorrow night.

Fitch suffered knee and shoulder injuries last year and only fought twice. Draw with BJ Penn. KO'ed by Hendricks. He's had a long career & I wonder if all those accumulated bumps and bruises will prevent him from keeping up with a young Erick Silva in his prime.

Or someone grabs a fence - seems like the number one cause of 3 round draws

Fitch will embarrass Silva with his usual superior wrestling and octagon control strategy. The Silva bandwagon will come to an abrupt halt.

I'm hoping for a Silva win, but this is what I see happening too.

Both guys looked great at the weigh ins. Silva looks a little bigger than he has in the past, so no doubt he's prepared to deal with the size and strength of Fitch.

I really hope Silva pulls this off, but I see Fitch vs. Alves II happening.

Aye mate, I only seen a picture of the weigh-ins but both guys looked huge for welterweights, looked more like middkeweights IMO. It would be interesting to know what weight both guys walk around at!
