Chuck's life is the UFC; he's been padded and protected. sure he's had some "tough" fights, but in all honesty, he has never really been in danger of losing his belt! Anderson would expose Chuck just like he did Franklin... as the sub-standard fighter Chuck, and the vast majority of UFC fighters are.
Eh I don tknow if I agree with that. I dont see any other middleweight or welterweight A Silva cannot beat in the UFC. As far as A Silva against the LHW champ Chuck Liddell... I dont think it'd be a walk in the park for Chuck but Id for sure see Liddell over A Silva.

A silva is a better pound for pound...but hes to small

theres a reason you dont see boxers fighting that far up in their weight class. Eventually power and size does take over and A silva's frame isnt built to be able to get big enough to pack on the power it would take to not get pushed around

Nate Marquardt definately stands a chance of beating A.Silva

David Terrell & Evan Tanner would also match up good against Silva

Silva is defanitly smaller in fact I mentioned it in my original post. However Chuck is not a powerhouse wrestler that pushes his opponents around. Many fighters go up and down in wieght classes. Given that Chuck is a counter puncher. I think the weight would not be as big of a factor, as it would be for somebody like Tito.

I have never seen Chuck fight a great Kickboxer and that is really what I would like to see.

As much as i like Liddell, i do think A.Silva would beat him. Why? Chuck's hands are always low. Sure, if he catches yopu with a connect it's lights out, but against someone like A.Silva who's movement and footwork is fantastic AND who dosn't miss with a punch, i could see Chuck going the way of Franklin.

Put it this way - do you think Chuck opuld have dismantled Franklin like that when FRanklin was fighting at 205? I don't.

CroCop will be fighting around New Years or a little after against Barnett more than likely.

I think Cro Cop will be fighting Fedor next. This Barnett info has to be a mistake.
