They are both in the same weight division. The heavyweight division in boxing has always had the biggest range in weight as well. Once you get to a certain size the advantages start to diminish. But any Couture fan that isn't concerned about Lesnar's size and strength isn't paying attention.

I think Anderson will Knock everyone out except for Nog. Nog has showed once and again he can take a lot of punishment, and Anderson won't submit him. It's either a decision for Andy or submission for Nog.

Oh, and in case you don't know, having bigger muscles don't make someone's ching stronger, so yes, Anderson has more than enough power to Knock every HW out.

1. Randy Couture - I think anderson might be quick enough to keep randy on the outside and he could win via tko.

2. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira - I think nog survives until he gets a hold of anderson and he subs him.

3. Brock Lesnar - Brock is to fast and to strong. Silva will inevitably end up on the ground and lesnar finishes him by tko in 30seconds once it goes there.

4. Fabricio Werdum - Werdum will survive to get a hold of him, push him against the cage and sweep the much smaller fighter to the floor where he wins by sub or tko.

5. Cheick Kongo - Kongo will stay out andersons reach and come in with powerful low kicks, whether he slows anderson enough to get ahold of him and force it to the ground determines whether he loses via tko or wins via tko.

6. Antoni Hardonk - anderson via tko round 1.

7. Cain Velasquez - 50/50 cain survives to the ground or gets tkoed.

8. Gabriel Gonzaga - Silva overpowered and taken down tkoed by gabe 1st round.

9. Tim Sylvia - Anderson chops those legs down for a few minutes and beats tim with good head movement and accurate punches.

10. Andrei Arlovski - I see arlovski losing striking with anderson.

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.
Stole the words right out of my post except I think Silva could potentially beat Arlovski and Sylvia.

PS. Why is everyone underrating Gonzaga (a BJJ WORLD Champion).

Forum Bets: 2-0

You're probably right, but I would love to see it.

Because his cardio and stand-up (aside from kicks) sucks?

Jacare is also a 100x better grappler then Anderson ever will be.
