I voted for Rampage fight though. For some reason that sounds like most fun.
-Forrest is NOT, I repeat NOT capable of subbing Andy.
-Rashad could Dec him, but I doubt it, the only I see him beating is to flash KO him.
-Rampage could T/KO him... but I see it happening a lot like Wandy/Rampage's 2nd fight, just a lot faster.
-Since Wandy would fight Andy, I still call Andy for the win. I mean, I think Andy is basically a better Wandy.

Alot of people said same about Shogun.

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.

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.

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.

Wow i must have forgot that power is the only important thing about striking. So by that account, Brock Lesnar must be the best striker in all of mma right?
I will pick technique over strength any day, and when it comes to mauy thai, Anderson is at the top. His precision is ridiculous. And to say he has no power is retarded as well. Look at Irvin after their fight, I have never seen someone in so much pain and he took only about 3-4 flush shots.
As for the fight with Wandy specifically, Wandy would get picked apart. His stance is too wide and wild and he pushes the pace. He is tailor made for a counter striker. I love Wand he is definitley one of my fav fighters, but he is a bad match up for Anderson.

Congratulations on completely missing my point. I said Anderson was more precise, but Wandy is extremely hard to knock out, and it does take good power to knock someone out. Wandy has taken good clean shots from people who hit a lot harder than Anderson, that was my point. Jesus christ.

i don't get why you think anderson isn't capable of KOing wandy. A.silva has 5 tko victories since coming to the ufc, and even rocked the iron jawed dan henderson badly before getting the rnc. silva has shown he has 1 punch ko power in the irvin fight, which he managed to do on a counter. anderson would definately be able to catch wandy as he moves in. we've seen multiple times that you don't need a power shot to ko a guy who walks into a punch (watch kimbos last fight)

the toughest fights for anderson would be forrest or rampage. forrest is very smart and would know that to beat silva you need to take him to the ground. forrest has a great ground game, so i don't see anderson getting the submission. as for rampage, he has awesome power, but i think anderson could use a similar gameplan as forrest and either tko once given the opportunity or edge out a decision. silva will want to avoid getting taken down at all costs; rampage will just muscle his way out of any submission attempt.

<--- the punch that started it all!

My current favirote fighters
Anderson Silva
Junior Dos Santos
Mauricio Rua
Alistair Overeem
Jon Jones

WAR dan hardy, paul daley, ross pearson and terry etim doing it for the britz!

My vote go's for Rashad, I think it would be an interesting match up.

The best fight imo would be Wandy v Andy...however I'm predicting Wanderlei 3 Rampage 0 so yea Rashad's my choice

I think any of these fights is far more interesting than Chuck and Anderson, if you could see any which would it be.

My vote goes to Page by the way.
That's even more incentive to win, if you lose, you have to fight anderson silva
