Ya but Silva can beat the shiit out of both of them, probably at the same time.

Helwani asked about the equivalent. The answer means that Silva is bigger in Brazil than Kobe Bryant or Lebron James are in the US. Silva seems to be the 2nd most popular in Brazil which, I guess, is higher than Kobe or Lebron in the US. At least according to this list Lebron James is only on 5th place, Kobe Bryant isn't even in the Top10.

LeBron is somewhere in the vicinity of 250 (And if you thought Brock was a fast heavyweight, well...) Kobe is smaller, probably 210-220 at this stage of his career.

Has Lebron ever fought in that weight class? No.
Is Lebron hated by many fans? Yes.
Does Lebron have a huge following and controversial persona? Yes.
Now all he needs to do is lose a fight and he'll have earned his title shot in the UFC!
