I'm asking whats wrong with you guys because you think he can take on powerhouses like Brock, Carwin and Kongo. Just because he beat Forrest doesn't mean he can go up in HW and KO everyone there. I actually hope it happens but Dana maybe would want to protect the '# 1 P4P fighter'.
Actually, I bet all my chits on Anderson in his last fight and he won me $260 bucks on the Henderson fight a year ago. I just don't like you guys overrating him as if he's the greatest thing since sliced bread.
MMA is a what have you done for me lately sport, of course people will argue and make enemies/get banned. It happens on every MMA forum.
(BTW A.Silva is one of my favorite fighters next to Lyoto/Nate Diaz but I'm to stick to reality and not say he can beat the HW Champion)
My friend, he's not the greatest thing since sliced bread, that would be sliced bread with ham, cheese and mustard in between.
Yes there's a possibility of overrating A Silva...as there was with a lot of people, you included, overrating Forrest Griffin's chances. There's also a possibility of overrating the worth of weight and power against technique.
Silva's nowhere, IMO, close to Forrest Griffin in strength yet strength was absolutely irrelevant in their fight (and Forrest, unlike Kongo, can actually grapple). Kongo is instinctively a striker who'll only follow you to the ground if he dropped you (which is unlikely against the faster and more elusive A. Silva).
Think of a wild puncher like Wanderlei against Cro-cop but in reverse. Silva would tool Cheick...I'd dare say even Rampage would.
