I think that Rampage could beat him. I think Silva would handle Machida easily. Especially since he gets to see his style on a regular basis. Ricardo Arona WTF? Are you aware that it is 2008? The guy hasn't won in two years and hasn't fought in a year. Who knows what kind of shape he is in. Beyond the fact that he would be rusty. There is a similar problem with Shogun. Is the old Shogun coming back, or has the injury taken away too much of his mobility?

Id love to see this fight, I can see Arona winning this by a cut due to elbows in round 3.

Honestly I think Palhares is a worse matchup then Arona for him. Palhares is said to submit Big Nog and Filho when they roll, so I'm sure subbing Anderson with those long ass limbs (especially his legs) wouldn't be too difficult. He also shoots like a monster and has a pretty good chin, Andy would be screwed.

Forum Bets: 2-0

I think Anderson would catch Rousimar with a knee, before Rousimar takes him down.

Robbie Lawler beat Anderson Silva?....no way

...Man what is it gonna take for Anderson Silva to still prove he is the best Middleweight on the planet to these retarded critcs? Robbie Lawler is a straight forward power puncher. He's like a better version of Chris Leben...that's it. Leben got destroyed by Silva.
...Every fighter that has come straight at Anderson has lost within 3 rounds. Rich Franklin would beat Robbie Lawler for sure and Anderson Silva...no question about that. Robbie only has a punchers chance. Anderson has been in there with some of the best Strikers, Wrestlers and Jiu Jitsu guys and they have all lost. Robbie Lawler would have no chance on the ground with Silva and Anderson's striking angles are some of the best I've ever seen, next to Liddell's.

Are we forgetting Sokky vs. Arona? Sokky was able to block Arona's take downs pretty well. Arona is just a little too one dimensional to hang with Andy imo. I dunno, Arona is a beast, but I'd still be taking Anderson ftw. It would be a good match up though. Nice thought.

Support Mixed Martial Arts, not Ultimate Fighting

Sokky got that judo backround and has much better TDD than Silva. Once Arona got Silva down it would be over. Silva has never faught a grappler like Arona, and you cant really train with anyone cuz hes better than everybody at that weight when it comes to grappling.




Mancrushes
1.Shogun
2.BJ
3.Fedor
4.Kos
5.GSP

EVANS, Machida (won't happen), Chuck (his style is perfect for Anderson), Vera (call me crazy, I see a flash KO), Wandy (but that won't happen), Shogun (but I doubt that would happen), and last but not least, Sokky (He does while against huge name fighters for some reason) And Nate in a rematch.

People I don't give a chance to, Forrest, Rampage, Jardine, Henderson (I really want to believe, but if I really think about it... lol), Tito but he's not UFC anymore.

And for the record, I don't think GSP stands a chance. I think the fight would be similiar to Anderson vs. Franklin 2, with GSP doing... well?... for a second, then getting outclassed.
What would Evans have for Silva? I seriously doubt he would get hit by an overhand right thrown from the hip, he is waaaaay to good for that. All evans would be able to do is try and smother him for the 5 rounds. His boxing looked great against Chuck, but if he wants to try and trade he is going to get KTFO.
I would still give Forrest a chance because he would utilize a game plan very much like Machida, peppering from the outside and circling. But i would bet on him getting knocked out too.
