Pffft you got lucky. Kim is going to put on a grappling clinic

I'm torn on this one... My vBookies are going on Stun Gun to grapple Silva effectively enough to shut him down, something he's most definitely capable of... Though I'll be concious of the fact that Silva could finish this fight at any time.

All I know is that the winner of this fight is going to look mighty impressive, whoever that may be.

I'm glad I'm not emotionally invested in either fighter like you two poor saps above me ( ;) ) so I can really enjoy this fight; these two are ridiculously talented in very different ways.

Stun Gun by decision. Silva is always a dangerous opponent, but I think Stun Gun can tire him out and effectively turn this into a grappling match.

Obviously a die hard Silva fan here but I don't disagree.

Honestly I think this fight comes down to when it ends. I can't see a way personally that Stun Gun finishes Silva... so basically, if the fight is stopped I think it will be Silva. If it goes for 15, I'd predict a judges nod for Kim.

Erick Silva is almost a 3 to 1 favorite on the books.

I'll go with the Brazilian in Brazil.

Almost makes me want to put money on Stun Gun. I'm not a betting man though. I work hard for my money. :hug:

Yeah its going to suck for me if Kim loses, even more so if its a close decision. Either way this will be a fun fight.

I think Kim wins this fight, I see him taking Silva down and working for subs, using his top control and using his GnP to win this fight by UD or could be a SD.

Kim could win this fight if he commits to the sub more than he normally does, but he probably won't because he does not like to give up position.

Silva is a more powerful and explosive striker and could finish it standing. I think people are look back too much at the Condit fight. Kim's striking has improved a lot since then, he is much better at keeping distance.

Silva got his learning curve in the Fitch fight, and he nearly won that. I think we see a more patient Silva, which ultimately makes him even more deadly. Kid is very well rounded and does not have a problem with wrestlers, he just wants/wanted a sick highlight reel and didn't care if he gassed trying to get it.

A more mature Erick takes this impressively.
