I dont think that matt would beat silva but BJ is FARRR superior on the ground to any MW in the ufc. Including rich of silva

I think he might give Silva a hard time to. I think silva's only change against hughes would be stand up but seeing his accuracy its a good chance he could KO hughes like he did franklin. But im convinced that theres not a JJ fighter that could be Hughes, no matter what belt.
There is no chance Hughes goes up a weight class because his buddy lost. Hughes is the king of the WW's right now. No need to give that up.

Franklin didn't look 100% going in. But that's no excuse, he got dominated so badly. UFC needs to bring in fighters or something, cause the MW division really is thin. I don't see anyone who can possibly beat him. Mike Swick would get knocked out cold! I'm sure he is nervous now and wishes he took back his comments when he beat loiseau.

Many fighters around the world

I have been saying it for a long time.. There are many fighters from other orgs that would dominate in the ufc.... Crocop comes to mind and so does Silva... Both of them....

That was the worst broken nose Ive ever seen. And Hughes would get dominated by Anderson by the way. I dont see him going through with his threat to come up and beat Silva if Rich lost.

His nose was a mess, im surprised there wasn't much blood.

UFC doesn't have anyone to throw at Anderson now though... who's the contender? Mike Swick? Swick will get absolutely crushed. Patrick Cote is going to be crushed. The only thing UFC is going to have going now is WW and LW fights. There are a total of about 4 good HWs, 2 LHWs, and 1 MW.

their only hopes of beating silva is to catch him with some crazy submission like a flying heel hook or seomthing

You never know

Any fighter can be beaten on any given day..... People always just throw away old champs... Even if there record is outstanding 19-0-1.." O they are all washed up". I cant wait to see franklyn come in again against silva... He really needs to work on that Muay clinch..............
