Aleksander Emelianenko is 6'6 and weighs like 250-260 pounds... he may have dropped some weight though but he could never cut to LHW. I do agree about Arona being a bad match up for Silva, however, I think that Arona has a good chance of getting KOed by Silva b4 getting the fight to the ground. Arona is a great fighter but when has he faced that good of strikers? Generally speaking he fights grapplers and has never faced a striker like A. Silva.

What a stud

I can't believe nobody thinks GSP could beat Silva at 185. The most challenging fights for Silva were the ones he was on his back. You can't leave this guy on his feet. He needs to be taken down, put on his back, GnP and elbowed and GSP is perfect for that.

Until further notice, Anderson's biggest liability is his takedown defense and a good BJJ player with explosive takedowns should be able to give him problems if the fight hits the canvas. Toquinho and Filho both possess very explosive, powerful takedowns with excellent top games.

If Lutter could pass Silva's guard, I'm more than sure Toquinho and Filho would like a hot knife slicing through butter. Even though Silva/Filho isn't ideal, Toquinho would be a steady contender if he can shore up his striking enough to hold his own on the feet.

Suizida tried to tell me that Jardine's Techno viking monkey style was too much for Vera's overhyped skills but i was to busy nuthugging to listen to 'the truth'
