You make it sound easy to just get together and figure out how to beat his style. Its not like he was doing anything fancy it was a simple muay thai clinch. You can call me a bandwagon guy all you want I was really impressed with Silva and i honestly dont think hes losing anytime soon.
Yeah I saw the fight, I saw a defeated Franklin before he even started ... For sure it's an impressive victory but I just can't see him walking through everyone like that for long. He raised a lot of eyebrows last night but he's not a machine, he cuts and bleeds like all MMA fighters

I figured that, it just sounded like you meant they were the ones who could beat Silva, the way you worded it. I seen you post about Hughes, so I figured you knew your shit, just wasn't sure what you meant by that post, which is why I started my post out "IF your implying that...". Still not sure about Swick though....

Both were undeserving of title shots but both won....crazy huh.

Actually I didnt really know that. Heh I suppose thats an eye for an eye then.

Do you guys think David L would match up better against Silva? He is alot better up tight I think then franklin.

Silva's dominating win sure screwed things up in that division though. I wonder if the UFC really has a plan for that division now.

And god no the TUF fighter who wins that should not go up against Silva. Thats like throwing chum in the water.

I think everyone here is underestimating mike swick, obviously if he fought silva hed be an underdog and rightfully so, but hes got real fast hands, and great submission skills, i think his hands/chin are good enough and he is fast enough to avoid the muay thai clinch and then hes got a chance to bring the fight to the ground where he has a shot a submission, im not saying hed definitely beat silva that would be ridiculous but i do believe he has a chance

This is what they said about Fedor. I am not comparing Anderson Silva to Fedor though.

Silva's going to decimate Swick in relatively easy fashion. We can sit here and pretend Swick has a shot, but then we'd also be discussing how Matt Hamill is the next Fedor. It's just not gonna happen. 2 striker go in, one guy has his hands down(And a questionable chin), and one guy leaves the winner.

A. Swick & Silva.
B. Swick.
C. Silva.

ok, so Silva makes Dana's TUF goldenboy look like a flacid pile of uselessness... and now he takes one of the UFC's top champs and totally dominates him. i mean, Franklin looked like he'd never had a single fight in his entire life, silva totally embarassed him. i don't see anyone, especially anyone from inside the UFC's ranks that has a chance to take away silva's new bling!!!

whiskey, racism, money, grease, twinkie's, guns.....yep lol thats about it

The guy that has the best chance is Franklin, the rest of those guys wouldnt have a shot against FRANKLIN, let alone Silva, I dont know why people are bothering voting for these other guys, the only 2 choices should be "Franklin in a rematch" or "No one in the UFC".
