"Just um...dont talk...
He's overrated BUT he's the best pound for pound striker in the UFC...brilliant. Oh and he's one of your favorite fighters..along with Chris Leben, imagine that."
and your point is what? that a good striker cant be overated? that its crazy to like andy and leben at the same time cuz someone like you would probably just cast there favorite fighter to the side after one bad loss.
"Everyone has a hole in their game, when EVERYONE has a hole in their game, there's no point in bringing it up."
No the point was that anderson is in a div full of strikers that he can outclass with only a couple good grapplers and nobody with good enoguh takedowns to forsure be able to even get a takedown and that if there where good wrestlers with good ground and pound and submissions anderson would not look as good as in a div full of strikers who he can destroy easily as they play the game he wants them too. My point was perfectly valid as the famous phrase goes styles make fights.
"So what you're trying to say is someone who wont be willing to strike with him can defeat him on the ground. I must inform you my friend that Silva is just as good on the ground as he is on his feet, judging that you've only seen 2 fights, or know any additional background to Silva instead of knowing "he's the best striker" you'd know this."
and yet again you are dead wrong you say silva is just as good on the ground as he is on his feet!!~ ever seen him fight newton becasue after about one minute on the ground with carlos he was mounted eating shots, about one minute standing he was feeding him a flying knee to the nogan.You assume ive seen only two of his fights which means you didnt even read any of my posts as i stated before that his fans who have only seen his two ufc fights are the ones who over-rate him.You assume the stupidest things for little or no reason at all. HIm and chuck are the ufc's best strikers but their styles vary so much i cant put a name on #1
Like it or not silva is at risk against a veteran fighter who is also a strong wrestler with a good all around ground game heart and a good chin + decent standup. that = matt hughes.
