-Forrest is NOT, I repeat NOT capable of subbing Andy.
Alot of people said same about Shogun.
-Rashad could Dec him, but I doubt it, the only I see him beating is to flash KO him.
Rashad is good wrestler. If Lutter could take Silva down, Rashad can too. I see Rashad controlling Silva on ground without being able to finish him, and thus win by decision. He could win by KO too, but I would expect Rashad to take it to ground instead.
-Rampage could T/KO him... but I see it happening a lot like Wandy/Rampage's 2nd fight, just a lot faster.
I don't see that happening. Sure Rampage's clinch game has been exposed few times, but he can take pretty good beating and even several football kicks to the head by Shogun didn't knock him out instantly. Silva doesn't have the strenght advantage to abuse the clinch against big LHW like Rampage the way he did against Franklin either. He is prolly getting KOed if he actually tries it against Rampage.
I see Silva with the stalk & counterpunch -game plan he usually does, but I don't see him being able to drop Rampage before he gets dropped himself, and thus T(KO) by Rampage.
-Since Wandy would fight Andy, I still call Andy for the win. I mean, I think Andy is basically a better Wandy.
Thats pretty weird comparing. They do have very similiar skill sets, but Wandy is bigger and meaner with more KO power and more aggressive style.
I don't see anything where Silva is clearly ahead of Wandy though, their clinch game is pretty much comperable, both are good at bjj atleast defensively, and while Silva's striking is more technical and accurate Wandy has more KO power and arguably better chin. If Chuck didn't drop Wandy with any of those punches, Silva wont either.
There is a reason Silva is a MW instead of LHW basically, and while the weight advantage isn't huge to Wandy I see it being big enough to affect the outcome of this fight.
