Who are some heavyweights Anderson Silva could beat?
 
Mir, yes, Kongo, great fight, i think kongo would win, i think valasquez would lose by submission

At this point honestly I would never bet or pick against Anderson, if Anderson fought Superman I would pick Anderson by KO round 1.

I honestly think mir would take him down and murder him.Kongo would knock him out too.Silva might have a chance against a total clown like dan evensen or a washed up crocop.

If Mir could get the fight down he would win no doubt imo, but I don't see Frank being able to close the distance to get the takedown without getting litup and hurt badly. The Kongo fight is interesting but speed kills and if a 185'er or 205'er cant land a shot on Anderson I doubt a heavyweight would be able to, I would definitely pay to see both fights though.

Wow Silva has some pretty epic hype behind him. Unreal.


Some guy at my MMA gym today said Silva would tool Fedor and school GSP on the ground... :sarcastic12::confused05:

I wouldnt go that far, his groundgame isn't THAT great, it's good but not world class. I've been watching alot of combat sports mostly alot of boxing and MMA and I've never seen a striker the calber of Anderson IN MMA. His speed, timing, accuracy, and head movement are lightyears ahead of everyone. To say he would tool GSP or Fedor on the ground is pushing it WAY too far and I would never think that but his striking is world class, elite, phenominal whatever word suits you. If you can get him down you can win but I would never pick anyone to to stand and trade with Anderson and win.

Do you really think Kongo would beat Anderson?? I give silva a 1 Round KO against this guy. And he would destroy Mir as well, maybe not in the 1 round but at least 2 or 3.

With the speed and accuracy of his boxing I think he'd have a chance against most in the division. The problem arises with one of the more massive guys getting him on the ground, which could spell danger. If he kept it on the feet, and thats a massive IF, he'd do well I think. Not sure he could rely on the clinch though... Doesn't he walk around as a HW though??

I think he'd beat all the strikers but would have a problem with the wrestlers.

With all the hype now, I am afraid to hear the nuthuggin if he beats Belfort. To answer the question though I would have to say that his speed, accuracy and technics should have him fair well against several HW. Congo is one dimensional and I don't think he would get a chance to lay his hands on Silva. Cain doesn't seem to have KO power so I think he could take him too. It's hard too say if Silva would have the same effect with power shots against the HW's so to make any claims with guys like Fedor, Brock or Carwin and maybe even Nog is absurd IMO. If he shows power at that weight class anything is possible with his skill set. The most interesting fight to me is Mir. His 4 losses have been way of KO or TKO (3 really count in my book because of the motorcycle crash)so he is suspect if it doesn't go to the ground. This is a fight I would love to see, not gonna happen any time soon if Mir takes out Congo though. Time will tell.
