Its freaking unbelievable the amount of lesnar hate on here.He was in WWE, big deal.So was ken shamrock(he sucks now, but he used to own).There is no way anderson could beat lesnar.Lesnar's skull is way too thick for silva to KO him in one hit, which would happen when lesnar takes him down.Lesnar would pound him out for a TKO win.And no, the choi hong man vs fedor fight is in no way relevant or even similar to a anderson silva vs brock lesnar match

This is fxcking ridiculous. I love Silva as much as the next guy (trust me I really do), but this is too far-fetched.

Sure he could beat Kongo and Valezquez and maybe Hardonk, but Couture? Werdum? Lesnar?!

Lesnar could beat Silva easily. How? By taking him down to the ground. Silva's weakness is wrestling and that is Lesnar's ticket to victory. He could lay on top of him and I doubt even Silva has long enough legs to triangle Brock. The amount of Silva nuthuggery on these boards is ridiculous.

Lawl, you like, said "NUTHUGGERY!" Anyway, I don't think it's as much of them praising Silva than it is downplaying Lesnar.

Haha actually, Valezquez would probably have a better shot beating Silva than Couture would. And Werdum isn't a big heavyweight; if Silva can keep the fight standing he wins easily.

You're just a cook...

dont get me wrong silva is the man but that's 2 much
Dude finally. I agree with you 100%. Silva is a walking badass. no one can assume he can go in there and dismantle guys that fricken big. I do beleive he can beat some of them. Its MMA for christ sakes. If you take any MMA fighter and have them fight 100 times against the same person I highly dought the same guy wins all hundred times. You just get lucky. Spider could probably beat AA (closest person to his size) Silvia (shit who cant beat him) Maybe Werdum. Gonzaga, Lesnar, nog, are simply to damn big for him. Oh he would probably beat Coutour too.

Okay here's a thought, backtrack in this thread, read maybe, and notice that your post makes absolutely no sense in my regard.

How Silva would beat Couture? Last through his GnP and knock him out standing up. If they fought at 205, Silva would beat him.

That just isn't true.

The guy is 245+ that is a big HW.

Honestly Werdum is a terrible match up for Anderson way bigger and way better on the ground with a fantastic chin.

Now to the OP.

Couture vs Anderson is interesting Couture would probably just take him down and hold him for 5 rounds because unlike Henderson Couture is smart.

Nog would beat him because Anderson won't finish him and he would get caught on the ground sooner or later.

Lesnar is huge so that would be tough but idk who would win.
I think I would pick Brock by UD but Anderson could submit him.

Werdum subs Anderson just do to size and submission skill.

Kongo gets beat by Anderson. I've never been impressed by Kongo's stand up.

Hardonk vs Anderson would be interesting and I think Anderson would pull it off.

Velasquez takes him down and beats him IMO. Cain is a good grappler and he would take Anderson down at will.

Gonzaga beats Anderson just again due to size and submission skill.

Sylvia vs Silva is hard to call Sylvia has a huge size advantage so idk who wins that.

Arlovski beats Anderson mostly because he would have way too much power for Anderson to stand and trade against.

And when couture fails to get silva down like hendo did he is going to get knock out. Silva takes the Couture fight.

AA has way to much power for Anderson? AA has to hit silva first. Silva takes this fight by tko.

All others I agree with

1. Randy Couture - I think Randy could get Anderson down, but I don't think he'd be able to pass Anderson's guard. I think that he'd either get submitted by Anderson, or knocked out after a stand-up from an inability to do anything within Silva's guard. Silva via submission, 2nd round.

2. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira - This fight could go either way I think, it would completely depend on if Nog could get Anderson down and pass his guard immediately. Seeing as Nogueira uses leg trips and single legs instead of double legs, he wouldn't fall right into Anderson's guard, and in that case I think he could submit him. If Nogueira can't get Silva down though, he loses a decision. I'd probably pick Nogueira though, just because he always finds a way to get the fight to the ground and Anderson's takedown defense could still use improvement. Nogueira via submission 3rd round.

3. Brock Lesnar - He'd absolutely pick Lesnar apart with his footwork. He'd be able to get in and out of the pocket and punish Brock.. I could actually see him finishing Lesnar with a flying knee as Brock shoots in. Silva via TKO, 2nd round.


4. Fabricio Werdum - Werdum, doesn't usually fair too well against strikers, but he'd have a substantial size advantage in this fight. Like the Nogueira match-up, it would entirely depend on whether Werdum could get the fight to the ground without having to pass Silva's guard once it gets there. Werdum via submission, 3rd round.

5. Cheick Kongo - I think Anderson would submit Kongo. He'd be winning the stand-up, but Kongo would take the fight to the ground with his strength. Once it gets there, Anderson locks up a triangle or armbar and makes Cheick tap. Anderson Silva, submission 1st/2nd round.

6. Antoni Hardonk - This would be a fun fight. Hardonk has great leg kicks, but Anderson is definitely the more well-rounded striker. I'd pick Anderson to win via TKO, 1st round.. Hardonk wouldn't be able to do anything with Silva on the ground.

7. Cain Velasquez - I'd actually pick Velasquez in this. His wrestling is great and his grappling looks to be pretty impressive. A wrestler with a great grappling game could really pose issues for Silva on the ground.

8. Gabriel Gonzaga- Gonzaga would take the fight to the ground and win a round. Gonzaga would more than likely gas from taking Silva down and not being able to do anything, Silva would proceed to pick Gonzaga apart with his boxing, and more than likely drop him with a straight punch, finishing him with strikes on the ground. Silva via TKO in the 2nd round.

9. Tim Sylvia- Tim Sylvia's ground game will always be his weakness, so he'd try to keep the fight standing against Silva. Either way, on the ground or standing Silva wins this fight. I'd pick Silva to win via TKO in the second or a unanimous decision.

10. Andrei Arlovski - Andrei Arlovski's chin isn't the greatest, he's like a tank without much armor. Standing this would be a very technical bout, but once again, Silva has more tools to beat Arlovski. Like Apecity said, Arlovski lacks head movement, something Silva has in spades. Silva would drop Andrei with a straight punch, finishing him with strikes on the ground. Silva via TKO, 2nd round.

Henderson also has a terrible gas tank at 185 something Couture doesn't have at 205 or HW.

AA has great hands he is training with Freddie Roach he would have no problem hitting Anderson.
