Hughes is the best fighter in the world. Puond for puond the most dominant man on earth. That is what he and the UFC want you to believe at least. What is stopping him? If he beats, GSP and then wuickly dismisses TUF 4 guy, probably Serra. What is stopping him then? Not as unlikely as you think. The GSP thing is a big if though.

I guarantee you that Silva is not as good on the ground as Dean Lister. They are just handing out black-belts in Jiu Jitsu at the chute boxe academy in Brazil. Wanderlei and Anderson are not black belts in my mind. Shogun is but those others are not. They focus on striking so much there. And they do a great job with it. Anderson is by far the best striker there. And in the MW division of the UFC right now. That is why I say take it to the ground. But that is much easier said then done. Not to mention you need to get in a good position. Silva is good. But his competition in the UFC thus far has not been. Aparently Hughes is going to move up and try and fight Silva now. That is the new rumor. Like to see that one. Hughes would not stand a chance. He thought BJ was a tough match. Wait til he meets a bigger, stronger, longer-lasting version.

I agree wit you, but silva ain't wit chute boxe no more and he's close friends with the nogueria(i ain't even gonna try to spell it right) bros and minotauro personally gave him the black belt so i would think silva's bjj is pretty tight. But he has gotten caught wit crazy submissions before though.

Yeah, so he could avoid the knee's right? LMAO

I think I remember saying that if Anderson beats Franklin then the UFC "nuthuggers" nned to stop arguing that PRIDEs fighters are inferior to UFCs. Silva was a mediocre fighter in PRIDE, and almost even record, too lazy to check right now with all the traffic on MMA sites right now, and he beat an undefeated champ (undefeatd in the UFC) in the FIRST round. I still refuse to buy into either argument that either organization is better, they both have great fighters and horrible fighters. I just hope now that all the PRIDE 'nuthuggers' dont go overboard on the PRIDE is better shit. Me, I like to consider myself an MMA nuthugger because the organization doesn't mean shit and I guess I'm one of the only ones on this forum that understands that concept.

This post was in response to a couple on the last page, I saw when I submitted it that there were like 6 new posts since I started this post. Dont think I'm just ranting for no reason hahaha

I didn't know that. Good to know though. If there are two brothers out there that are better than the Nogueira bros than keep them the hell away from me. I will respect his ground skills more now. But if I were him I wouldn;t even let the fights go to the ground. That way he won;t have to worry about anything other than flying armbars from Chonnan.
