And I am not sure what makes you think Stun Gun is an overall better grappler than Erick. Don't take me wrong, I like both guys and I want to see those two scrambling and as I said, I think is a toss up. But as right now, on paper, I can't understand how Stun Gun is a better grappler. I can give him an advantage in Judo, his specialty, but Erick is a black belt in Judo himself and BJJ. Fighting wise, Stun Gun has only one submission in his career, none in UFC, while Erick has 9.

We shall see after they clash.

Silva is a great grappler, he has a better submission game than Kim. But Kim has such an overwhelming top game and is able to control almost anyone. I think it will be a close fight though

I think your mistaking aggression for skill. Kim is a very patient grappler who does not risk losing control it's like saying wanderlei is the best striker cause he is constantly looking for the knock out.

E. Silva has to take this in order to prove he's a true contender and not just another rising star. I can see Stun Gun pulling the win by decisioning him, but I'm thinkin' Erick will unleash some hard shots going for the TKO. Some kind of a body shot or kick.

The closer the fight gets the more confident I am in the outcome. I completely agree, I think we're going to see Kim wilt in the second at the latest

I keep thinking of this fight and I can only imagine two outcomes. Either Silva puts Stun Gun away or Stun Gun wears him down and cruises to a decision. Still gotta go with Kim.

I expect the first round to be crazy. A fresh Silva is scary. Wondering how Stun Gun will react to this. Patience will be important.

I just wish Stun Gun would improve his g'n'p - he's great at getting the TD's but never accomplishes anything from there other than 'dominant position' for points' sake. Read somewhere about him saying in an interview his MMA wrestling is superior to GSP's but atleast St Pierre's gnp does damage... I believe Kim would get much more respect if he improved his submission game & finish rate imho...

Kim is going down to strikes in this one....simple as.

Silva would have to look miserable to lose this one
