His dad is basically saying that Anderson is a natural at being confident in his abilities and skills, thus is able to "show" more in a fight, where as Lyoto uses a lot of mental focus training, meditation, etc, as he is not as naturally confident in his abilities, but his last two fights he has shown that he now knows he is dangerous and if he puts it all out there he is a huge force.

As far as Machida vs Silva, Silva's advantages in fights are based on 3 things:

Speed
Explosiveness
Timing

Machida has better timing, is just as explosive(he's actually a bit more explosive when it comes to going from 0 to 60) and is quite fast himself. Anderson has already stated that Machida would beat him, and there's a reason for that. Both are really great fighters, but the 3 main things that Silva has over his opponents, Machida has over Anderson.

GSP is far bigger, Sherk vs Penn is more accurate.

IMO I think Lyoto would win by decision. I don't see either of these two finishing each other.

Hey at least Lyoto's dad knows what's up. Anderson would whoop the piss out of Machida, not that we'll ever see this fight. You never heard of anyone saying Anderson hits like a bitch after their fights.

Evans was expressing that sentiment right when the bitch hits crumpled him like a dandelion vs a steamroller. Safe to say he was talking out his ass.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

Enough "bitch hits" will knock anyone out eventually. My point was that comparing Lyoto's power with Anderson's is ridiculous Anderson would win that test. He wasn't called pillowhands for no reason. Though it was nice to finally see him knock some people out finally.

Anderson probably does have more power but the fact remains that Machida can KO fools. He does not hit like a bitch, and it's pretty hilarious to accept that as evidence from a guy that he KO'ed. Bitch hits do not finish world champions.

Why even bother explaining it... Some people will keep on spewing the same crap that comes out of their mouth even when common sense is involved.
