How would you market this fight......

UFC really does know how to sell a fighter! For instance, James Irvin. He's a mediocre fighter that was definitly not on Anderson Silva's level. But the UFC was selling him like if he was on that level! For example...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_tuAKLPgIzc

Made him out to be a freakin monster didn't. A man who can KO your ass in 8 seconds.

So, if you were the UFC how would you market something like.....Anderson Silva vs. Eric Shafer? How would you sell Eric Shafer to the public? What would you say that would make the public think this man (Shafer) is a freakin monster who could possibly destroy Anderson Silva?

If you look hard enough, basically everyone has highlight KO or submission, just gotta shove that down everyones throat for months

Very true. The reason why they market a fight like that and should market a fight implying Eric Schaffer has a chance to beat Anderson Silva is to make people want to watch it. Most fans want a close fight or a potential for upset. Like coldcall said, these uneducated fans, allow this to actually effect them, whereas people like us know full well what would happen to Ravishing Red in a fight with Anderson Silva.

Here is what I said about Silva vs Irvin:

Quote:
I expect Silva to win easily but, I would give Irvin a better chance of KOing Silva than I gave Serra of KOing GSP. Thats why I can't understand this match up. It' like Jardine vs Houston but worse. Why threaten the Silva legacy by creating a meaningless fight against an average and unpredictable opponent? It's just desperate and dumb.

Bloodjunkie knew what he was talking about

As for Schaefer vs Silva:
I would schedule the fight with 3 days notice to coincide with St Patricks day (he looks Irish ). In honour of his heritage Scheafer would be able to use a Shillelagh.
I would install Rampage as Silva's only corner man.
Silva still wins in under 2 minutes.

I liked it when they hyped Mir vs Lesnar and all they had of Lesnar was his pro wrestling highlights. They even called him "The Former WWE heavyweight champion".

I found that funny.

Schafer is a german name soming from sheppard. so maybe plan a fight for octoberfest at the fist card in germany and maybe they can put on a germany heritage fightres vs WWII enemy fighters. Lesnar is german heritage he can fight french Cheick Kongo. shaefer can fight "support our troops" tito ortiz. and i think leben might be german he can fight brit michael bisping or jew rory singer(although i think he's probably been cut).
