You wanna compare Silvas record in Pride. OK lets do it.
Fujita- Overated slug. Pride verion of Tank Abbott.
Yuki Kondo- UFC reject who left on a losing streak.
Hidenhiko Yoshida- No name scrub
Ikuhisa Minowa- Can (He lost to freakin UFC reject Phil Baroni for Christ sake)
Tatsuya Iwasaki- No name scrub. His first and only fight.
These are the fighters they feed to Silva to build him up.
Kazuhiro "The Punk" Nakamura- Can
Shongo Oyuma - Can
Kiyoshi Tamura- Can
Hiromitsu Kanehara- Can
Alexander Ostuka- Can
With the exception of Rampage Jackson, Sakuraba and Ricardo Arona all of his wins consist of nobodies or cans with almost as many loses as wins and some with more loses on their record than wins (yes I checked). Thats some pretty stiff competition right there.
You also ragg on Chucks win over Vitor and Tito but it was Vitor who mauled Silva and Tito who finally senk him packing to Pride if I recall. So what does that say about Silva?
