Silva takes this for sure. Everytime someone fights machida you always get joe/goldy saying "who do you get to immitate that guy in training" well Anderson gets to train with him regularly not to say he knows all of machida's "tricks" but he would have a good idea of what to expect. Silva wins with his speed and insane power.

This is why K1 is still my favorite combat sports organization. there are three dudes from Golden Glory in the final eight and they will have no qualms about fighting each other. I wish that more mixed martial artists had the same approach and treated this like a professional sport and not a sleepover. Come on guys, just learn to separate your personal lives from your professional lives, people do it all the time in other sports.

Lyoto also knows every single one of Anderson's "tricks" as well.

Anderson should just move up to LHW and earn the shot, maybe 2 wins over top 5 guys, let Machida defend once or twice and prove he is truely the class of the division and i think it would be perfect. A few IFs tho, im not in an imaginary world where ppl are unbeatable, especially with only one top 5 LHW win under their belt.

If it happens, Anderson via 2nd round KO

I'd have to go with Anderson as well. I can't believe I voted against Lyoto. That's freaky.

Well i never said he would know every single one of his "tricks" and what i mean is he wouldn't have the same mystique coming in to this fight as he does with most other competitors. Of course they will know alot about each others styles because they train together thats why i think Silva's natural speed and power would help him win it. It would be extreamly close though.

It might be the first time I ever place the bet on a draw!

And to the poster who says neither of these guys has had a boring fight? Uh, I disagree heartily. They both have (not saying all or even ANY of them were their "fault, though). Also, sometimes the "boring" route was the way to secure victory using elusive style and footwork. It's not flashy, it might not be what you want to see as a fan (I know it isn't what I want to see, I love technical battles on the feet ad the ground...but I do want some action!) but it is really damned effective!

I want this fight almost as badly as Fedor/Brock, or even Fedor/Randy a few years ago.

You know, I think I might want this one even more!

nothing is "for sure" when it's MMA. I thought you guys knew that by now.


Fedor, Mir, Lytle, Serra, Hendo, Chuck, Minowaman, Maynard, Forrest, Hunt
Pickett, Cerrone, Matt Brown, Bisping, Weidman, Barnett, Lawler

I think what he was trying to say was something along my same lines of thinking. With Machida, its more his elusiveness and people not being able to figure him out that is one of his greatest strengths, whereas Silva is just flat out that much better/quicker than people. So take away the figuring your opponent out factor, and I think Silva is faster and better than Machida. While Machida has been impressive, he hasn't even come close to Anderson in my opinion. I think a ground person is who is going to beat Anderson, and Machida is going to stand with him. I figure KO in 2nd round with basically nothing happening in the first.
