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

He was training his boxing with Roach for the Nelson fight, and even then Roy caught Andrei once, and Andrei's head was still immobile.

I think the power difference would be huge I mean Arlovski has a lot of power for HW. I just don't see Anderson being able to rock him.

Anderson Silva said himself in an interview that he cuts from 213. He looked good at 205 against a KO Puncher so how would he do against these guys?
I'm not a Lesnar fan at all but he could not beat Lesnar. The first time Silva gets close Lesnar would use his size and power to handle Silva completely. Silva is a better fighter, however, the size difference makes Silva's skill worthless here.

Hendo was in trouble at the beginning of round 2. He looked ready to go when he started that round as well.

You really think AA striking is better than Silva's? Silva can end the fight with just about body part he has.

3. Brock Lesnar (I have no idea, I want to say Anderson, but Lesnar I think could overpower him to a ref stoppage.)

4. Fabricio Werdum (Anderson by dec, I don't see him stopping Werdum)

5. Cheick Kongo (Anderson by KO anytime he pleases)

6. Antoni Hardonk (Anderson by ref stoppage in the 3rd, he'd wear him out)

7. Cain Velasquez (Uhm.. I have no idea at this point.)

8. Gabriel Gonzaga (Either Anderson by TKO in the first or second, or Gonzaga by flash KO. I see it happen one of those three ways)

9. Tim Sylvia (I see Sylvia taking this by dec, just because of height and strength.)

10. Andrei Arlovski (This would be a dream fight for me, and I see Anderson by ref stoppage late in the second.


Anderson Silva said himself in an interview that he cuts from 213. He looked good at 205 against a KO Puncher so how would he do against these guys?
My picks, just read the ()'s.

Henderson isn't a good fighter at 185 compared to Couture at either weight.

Arlovski has very good striking close IMO to Anderson and when you add in his power advantage I think he would win the fight standing.

I know what you mean, but I don't think you need HUGE power to knockout Arlovski. Hell, Datsik knocked out Arlovski and he's not really a powerful guy.

Agreed but randy likes to drop his guard to bait the other fighter into hitting him. He eats the punch (most of the time) and gets the take down. I don't see him eating a punch from silva.

AA striking is good but not as fluid and crisp at silva's. Anderson's foot work and head movement is much better than AA's. That's the difference maker, i don't see AA being able to land any of those power shot's. Plus Silva has a good chin.

2. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
(Nogueira by Submission / R3. It would be a tough fight for Nogueira since Silva is way better standing but after a lot of punishment he would get him down and catch him in a Guillotine or an Armbar.)

3. Brock Lesnar
(Anderson Silva by KO / R1. Lesnar has never dealt with such a well rounded fighter and also dangerous fighter like Anderson Silva.)

4. Fabricio Werdum
(Werdum by Submission / R2. Werdum is obviously way better than Silva at BJJ top or bottom but getting him down would be the question. It would be a long hard fight for both but Werdum catches him some type of choke.)

5. Cheick Kongo
(Kongo by TKO/KO R2. Cheick is way better standing + KO Power and actually has explosive take downs. Anderson Silva would get beat in the stand up and try to go for a take down after 10 minutes, that's when Kongo catches him. If not, he gets overwhelmed standing.)

6. Antoni Hardonk
(Same story above. TKO/KO R2)

7. Cain Velasquez
(Hard to Call.)

8. Gabriel Gonzaga
(Anderson Silva by TKO / R1.) Gonzaga is outclassed standing and can't do anything to Silva on the ground because The Spider has enough defensive BJJ.)

9. Tim Sylvia
(Anderson Silva by Unanimous Decision OR Submission. Sylvia would get outstruck worse than his fight with Couture.)

10. Andrei Arlovski
(Arlovski by Unanimous Decision. He would be way too defensive in this bout if he's fighting a better striker or grappler than himself. He would hit and run for 3 Rounds trying not to get hit.
Pretty much exactly how my picks are.
