Better Kelvin than Mousasi, Jacare or Romero the interesting thing with Kelvin is he's now 4-0 and he's beaten four names.
  • Uriah Hall
  • Nate Marquardt
  • Tim Kennedy
  • Vitor Belfort
Anderson has a ton of advantages over Kelvin but age and wrestling are going to make this an interesting fight

I am also super confused as to why Anderson would take this fight besides the fact that he was straight up called out by a youngster/self proclaimed "vet killer." When Anderson signed his new deal he said he was only gonna take big interesting fights. I feel we've been handed the short end of the stick watching him fight Brunson and now Kelvin. I guess when he meant interesting he meant see if he can keep up with the up and comers. That's not what I had in mind.

You're always wrong!

Still he lost to Neil Magny and was dropped by Rick Story. Long strikers give him problems. In addition to that we just saw the judges give Anderson the benefit of the doubt when it comes to Wrestling.

I think Kelvin TKO's Silva. I also think those comparisons are irrelevant. Silva has been dropped by Chael lol.

Neil Magny is a pretty good fighter himself and Rick Story is known for hitting hard as shit. There's no shame in either of those situations.

I want Silva to win but I think Kelvin is too quick and will catch Anderson. If it goes the distance though...this fight is in Brazil.

Anderson does struggle with south paw fighters especially ones who are wrestlers more than orthodox w/ the exception of Vitor. He's the only champion who risks and challenges himself w/ no name fighters in other words up coming fighters. He should be fighting the likes of GSP. If it were a three round fight I'd say Kelvin. The Spider has five rounds to punish em. It's probably going to be a decision for Anderson.

I wonder if he considered Romero cuz that's the fight that would have made sense to propel him into title contention. At the same time I don't want to see Romero get knocked off just yet. He has a date w/ The Count still.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.
