EXPERTS - Lindland will be 1st to topple Silva

OK, I have been scouring many, many MMA sites over the last day or so and have found something come up a few times. It seems the "experts" believe Matt "the law" Lindland most has the style that will trump Anderson Silva and at least one well known contributor said that he "probably" would beat Silva. Rumour has it the UFC has begun negotiations to bring Lindland back

i don't see lindland beating Silva. Rampage just beat him a few months ago, and QJ isn't nearly as dangerous as Silva. i'm not usually one to do the "A beat B so A will beat C" equation, but in this case... i don't see Lindland beating Silva in this point in Lindland's career/life.

now, Silva/QJ... that'd be a spectacular fight!!!

QJ is to big for middleweight, Lindland faught at MW in the UFC.

and incase you didn't know alot of people including myself think Lindland should have won that fight because QJ got punished by Lindland.

Anyways i think Lindland would match up great against Silva, he has good strength, olympic wrestling skills, great Team Quest GnP and Good submissions. He also can protect himself good on the stand up untill he shoots in to take silva down. It's hard for me to say how successful his shoots would be though because i haven't really seen Silva's sprawl in the UFC yet, or even takedown defence.

I do think a good wrestler who is well disciplined (Lindland, herk, Hughes, Tito) they all do VERY VERY well against JJ fighters, they seem to know how to stay away from Submissions and if they do get into one seem to be strong enough and smart enough how to get out of them.

I think it'd be a good fighter, i think alot of the UFC MW's right now are mainly like Silva just not as quick/accurate and experienced. Im a big Mike Swick fan, but i just don't know how well he'd match up against silva, although i think hes way more aggresive then rich franklin is, franklin lost because he was trying to counter punch an accurate fighter. And any striker knows to counter punch the guy has to miss you; Silva did not miss once. (expecially in the clinch)

i agree, i think lindland matches up well with silva, but i belive marquardt matches up just as well even a lil better, he is a great grappler with excellent submissions, his style is similar to ryo chonan, who beat silva, and i think marquardt might be a lil better than chonan..I like swick but i dont see him beating silva, he just doesnt match up well with him, i know marquardt can beat him, but dana never puts him on ppv so noone knows him, swick is gonna get the title shot and he is gonna get KO'd, and its gonna ruin the kid mentally, i wouldnt let swick fight him yet, give swick the rematch with leben, and let either marquardt or lindland beat silva, because no UFC middleweight is gonna outstrike silva

i think these experts should pull there heads out of there asses. did you see the lindland vs terrell fight? you dont think anderson could catch lindland the same way? i sure as hell do. i think this is an awful match up. and as much as i like rampage, and this obviously would have to be more of a dream match. the formula to beat him is out there. and silva knows real well. we just saw it on saturday night. silva vs franklin looked very similar too wand vs rampage. clinch+knees=ko.

Tap-outNow has a little shameless behaviour in the past
the "experts" are picking that way because Lindland olny beats himself.i.e. the self KO. Lindland has a better shot than most but Silva is a tough match-up for everybody! That spawl is amazing and the strikes just don't stop coming. A "laynpray" attack may be the only way to defeat the spider. Although, Lindland has become more offensive minded/meaner in his recent fights.

Yeah, I think almost any real MMA fan can give a guess at who can beat who just as well as someone saying they are an "expert"

they can bring him back. i dont dissagree with bringing guys back. there is obviously a lack of competition. but i dont think lindland will be the one to bring down the spider. i think he will get stung. and if rampage is getting paid 200, 000 a fight over there "the law" has to be getting something substantial. the ufc is gonna have to fork up that loot. plus i dont know if he wants to come back. he isnt a fan of elbows.
