Exclamation

Cheick Kongo.

The man has more reach, is 6'5", 230-240 lbs, is an excellent Muay Thai fighter, very strong and quick, and can take people down at all (Ala Hardonk, Evansan, Herring, Yvel). His chin ain't bad either. His GnP is brutal and has KO Power in his punches, knees, and kicks.

I don't think A.Silva could take him down if his life depended on it. Elite wrestlers like Cain did it and kept him there but A.Silva will just want to strike (obviously) like he does with everyone else. I think that would be a huge mistake against Kongo.

Plus this fight ain't going to Decision. Two excellent strikers with the intent to get the opponent out of there. It will be a KO of the Night.

Discuss.

very valid point. but im not sure if they are gonna put one of his few remaining fights with a low level HW even though it may be a good match up style wise.The UFC needs to have him surrender his belt before we can really speculate.

The only reason I want this fight to happen is to see all these 'A.Silva p4p #1' supporters and threads go away after Kongo puts him to sleep.

I'd love to see the fight man, but with only 3 fights left, they won't use one on Kongo.

Honestly I think Kongo would KO Anderson but not because of better skills, just because of great striking and being gigantic.

I'd like to see him go against Couture if he ever went to HW anytime soon . Kongo would destroy Silva just because of size and striking power. At least the couture fight would be a little better of a match up.

Yeah cause that would definitely show he's not the best fighter in the world for going up against a guy twice as big as him with twice as power and twice his strength.

Maybe we can put GSP in there against Shane Carwin...just to prove GSP isn't p4p #1. How about Brian Bowles verses Thiago Alves.

I think it's funny that people are now resulting to completely one sided match-ups just because they want Anderson Silva to lose cause the only man to dethrone Silva (in a fair cut/weight limit) is his training partner and best friend. So, what's the next logical step? Gigantic heavyweights! Haha, grow some backbone dude.

It's like "Let's put him up against Nikolai Valuev just so everyone will shut up about the guy111!!!11" Pathetic.

You're just a cook...

A dietitian to bring his weight back down. I'm just kidding.

I liked the Couture match up (God knows Big Nog has to be off the table). Couture is legit talent-wise, but at this point, he isn't one of the more sized and over-powering HW's, which makes for a good, while competitive intro fight to the HW class for Silva. Also, considering Couture loves to take on reputable fighters, I'm thinking Randy would want this fight as well (depending on the time table, he isn't getting any younger).

If Anderson fights at heavyweight it should be Fedor or it shouldn't happen.

I don't think the Fedor fight will ever happen so lets be honest with ourselves here.

We have a better chance seeing Brock vs. him.

I agree completely, but the Lesnar fight makes no sense from a UFC business perspective so I don't see that fight happening either.

Lesnar wins - No real gain for the UFC and diminishes their 185lb champion/205lb phenom.

Anderson wins - The UFC's investment in Brock takes a big hit which also impacts the business negatively
