Silva is susceptible to TKO by someone mounting, then GnP. There's some solid GnP'ers at 205.
GSP has shown sometimes he can get rocked, even tho he looked great standing against Alves and can basically TD anyone who's giving him trouble.
Lesnar's been rocked before (said he saw stars after a knee from Mir) and he's facing heavyfisted guys, so he's most likely.
Penn fights in a division without KO power for the most part. Diego doesn't have any proven one-shot KO power and Penn has cleaned the rest of the division. If he fights at 170lbs, against for example Alves, he'll probably get TKO'd.
Lyoto is the man, end of story. By the time he had 5 MMA fights under his belt, he had beaten Rich Franklin AND BJ Penn (fighting at 191lbs). He never gets hit, and he has a strong chin - just ask Inoki. I don't think we will ever see Lyoto finished, let alone knocked out.
hard to see why BJ is in first since GSP just about did the deed in their last match but i can see what people are getting at i guess -- his head is as strong as a rock.
I see what you're sayin. BJ was pretty close to getting TKO'd against GSP and was stopped against Hughes, but those were both at WW - which I don't see BJ moving back up to in the near future ( ). Also, against Hughes, BJ was still moving and taking shots, just couldn't block them. Maybe eventually he'll have taken one too many and his chin will resemble Chuck's (watched Rampage vs Chuck I the other day and it was awesome to see overhand bombs bounce off Chuck's face without second notice), but as of right now, BJ is damn near impossible to put "out".
I understand the votes for Lyoto given that it's the man's style not to get hit. This makes all the sense in the world, but for whatever reason, I couldn't pick a man I've never seen get hit besides this:
*which he takes pretty well mind you.
