I don't know why, but despite Silva's mass of skills, I don't ever see him being a big name. I have a feeling he loses this, but I hope he wins.

DHK is a very good grappler, but I don't know why I have a feeling ppl are sleeping on Erick's grappling skills. He is a very strong technical grappler himself, who started to lose positions to Fitch only after gassing. So grappling wise, if Erick paces himself, I see a toss up, being the undeniable striking advantage to the Brazilian.
That's a good fight to watch.

His problem is that he fights too aggressive. He can overwhelm a lot of opponents, but the smart fighters at the top will frustrate him unless he learns to pace himself and fight with controlled aggression, only exploding when it really makes sense.

This could be another Condit/Kim. Bother fighters are talented, but I think with Silva, the sky is the limit.

Kinda reminds me of a younger Shogun with his style.

Yeah maybe that's it. I just don't really see him being a Vitor kind of guy where he throws rapid punches to crush someone. He seems like the kind of guy who's be like a weaker version of Machida.

All the same, he has the skillset to go the distance.

I think this fight will be something like the Fitch vs Silva fight just less exciting. Kim will do what he always does that is control the opponent and look for the decision. I hope Silva proves me wrong and is able to avoid Kim's game, I think its possible Silva does have the skill to do this but I'm still leaning more towards Kim being able to control most of the fight.

Oh damn, this is the first time I've heard about this fight.

This one is going to be a lot of fun. Hopefully a three rounder with lots of back and forth.

Hey Clyde, we agree he's not like Vitor, but do you care to elaborate what are the similarities you see between Erick and Machida?

Not sure why people are saying this will be like the Fitch fight. Stun Gun has a better top game than Fitch, and is a better grappler overall.
