Good point and its not like Silva can just clinch him out, Houstons got some mean upper cuts and knees, should be a good fight if it goes into round two, with the edge going to Silva.

Not everyone is Lyoto Machida. He just grabbed alessio and beat the crap out of him, grabbed Jardine and beat the crap out of him. Its gonna be hard to stop a guy like houston getting hold of you.

I don't know how many times I am gonna have to explain this but no he did not. Houston wasn't even rocked, that shot had nothing in it. Go back, watch the fight and watch Houstons foot after he delivers the kick.

Jardine did not almost KTFO Houston like many people think.

Though I would love to predict the fight going to Houston by way of "beating someone like they stole something." but I think his weakness will be exposed, his cardio. I don't think he'll be able to close the distance and Silva will pick him apart at first, then will try to go for some submissions possibly.

I'm not sure though, he seemed pretty irritated like he's going to bring the pain to Houston.
