its funny that someone said Silva might get a late submission because i think the longer this fight goes, the more i favor a Brown win.
Silva has been disappointing so far. he has a ton skill, but his conditioning is sub par and he isn't the most intelligent fighter. Brown on the other hand has improved a ton and looks like a completely different fighter since coming off of the ultimate fighter. hes a tough guy and is a great finisher. he just has that in your face style and is durable enough to make it work.
if Silva fights smart and manages to get this one to the ground. he has a legit chance to win since his submissions are solid and Brown has had questionable submission defense in the past, but i think the safe bet is on Brown.
