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)
What is it that is going to be on your mind when you're on your death bed? Will it be the tedious years of 9 to 5, or the memory of some great acheivement. Maybe a moment you stood in glory to the applause of millions.
