Between BJ Penn and Lyoto Machida for me. If I was pushed to pick 1, I'd go for Machida. He's just so damn illusive, can't see him getting KO'd tbh.

Dunno, probably Machida and Silva at this point. Machida less than Silva. I rewatched the Travis Lutter fight and it almost fair to say that Lutter won the first round. He took Silva down a few times and actually MOUNTED him...Lutter came THIS close to finishing the fight with punches, but foolishly saw fit to go for an armbar. And that's when Lutter wasn't even 100%.

So Anderson IS human and can be grounded and pounded out. I saw it'll be a wrestler with some solid ground and pound that'll beat Silva. His takedown defence isn't great, and there are some very strong wrestlers at 205.

I chose Lyoto for the simple fact that it's so difficult just to land a punch on the guy. I would have picked Anderson but I feel like Anderson is a bit more showy and takes more risks in the stand-up. Not that I think Anderson will ever get KO'd, or lose for that matter (except at HW potentially.)

As for most likely to get KO'd? It would have to be between GSP and Brock for me, simply because GSP has shown in the past that it's possible and Brock simply hasn't been tested yet and his weight class is full of big-big men. With that said though, I don't see anyone knocking Georges out in the future and we'll see how well Brock takes a punch when he goes up against Carwin. That is if Brock lets the match stay standing at all...

I picked BJ because ive seen him get hit hard and not get ko'd, Ive never seen Machida or Silva get hit good, so if they did you never know what will happen. GSP has been tko'd and Brock eventually will.

Considering if Lesnar loses his next fight it will probably be by KO, he is most likely.

Silva is the least likely because he has a good chin, very good movement and no body in the UFC MW division or LHW division has the stand up to stop him other than Lyoto, whom he will not fight.

Forum Bets: 2-0

Brock is the most likely. Any HW is capable of being KO'd. There are just to many HW's with 1 punch KO power and all it takes is one mistake. Even Fedor's been rocked in a fight.

Least likely is a toss up between A. Silva and BJ Penn in my opinion.
