I was the only one to pick Silva in my MMAplayground fight camp. This is different. I do understand completely respect the idea of people predicting Lyoto beating Anderson, unlike Forrest beating Anderson.
But as far as Lyoto countering Silvas punches and kicks...who is to say Silva chases Machida? It's not happening. If Anderson did engage and chase down Lyoto, it won't be a cake walk for Machida to counter him. Silva is the best striker in MMA.
When it all comes down to it, this will be a striking match. And while both of them are two of the best strikers in the UFC...that's where the line is drawn. Silva is #1, Machida is #2. That's the difference.
I got Silva in this one, and I love them both.
You're just a cook...
