Who will be the guy to end Anderson Silva's win streak?
With Anderson bouncing around in weight classes, its tough to figure out who is going to be the guy to knock him off. Although he has looked great at LHW, he has faught guys that have been tailor made for him to tear up. I think a big strong grappler, would give him a ton of trouble in that division. There are very few holes in this mans game, and if you make one mistake, most likely your going to either be in the fetal position taking blows, or your going to tapping out do to a slick submission. But if Silva has one flaw it would be his TDD. And in a 3 round fight, which it would be if he faught at LHW. A big strong grappler could pull off the upset. Too bad there arent many of them
People may call me crazy for mentioning Tito's name, but love him or hate him, he is still a very dangerous guy. Tito is a HUGE LHW. Anderson has never faught anyone as strong as Tito with the takedown abilty and suffocating top control. Tito is VERY tough to submit, and wouldnt even have to pass Silva's guard to do damage. Call me crazy, but Tito matches up very well with Anderson. And in a 3 round fight, all he has to do is get TD's in the first 2 rounds, throw some bows, bully Anderson a bit and play it very safe in the 3rd round and grind out the decision. Tito has a very good chin and if he couldnt secure a TD in the 3rd I think he has the defense necessary to hold on to beat Silva via decision. If Tito gets past Forrest, this fight is VERY possible. It would be a huge PPV draw, and I fight I would love to see. Dont be shocked if you see this fight in the summer.
Even before his fight with Machida, Ive always thought Shogun would beat Silva. Shogun has improved his defense ALOT, and isnt the sloppy striker he once was. His chin is rock solid and his movement is great. He has very good TD's, with serious ground and pound. I dunno if ive ever seen anyone knock people unconcious with one blow from the guard like he can. His bjj is very good and he wouldnt be in any trouble with Silva on the ground. Silva would have the edge in the standup but I dont think it would that dramatic. Out of all matchups with Anderson, Shogun would provide the most exciting fight. He wouldnt be afraid to bang, and he would mix in some slick grappling. It would be a see saw battle for sure. But I think Shogun's TD's and ground and pound would give him the nod in a decision.
Probably one of the most improved fighters over the last couple years, Nate is solid everywhere. Good power, smooth strikes, decent wrestling, and good submissions. There is only one problem with Nate Marquardt, he isnt Anderson Silva. Anderson is dynamic in everything that Nate does well. And Nate wouldnt shy away from Silva, which is why I dont think he would last too long in a rematch. Silva TKO 2nd round
Lets pretend he is still under contract with the UFC. Dan is still a very dangerous guy for Silva. He has great wrestling and is strong as hell. But Dan simply doesnt have the top game necessary to beat a guy like Silva. He isnt busy enough, and in a 5 round fight he is bound to get stood up numerous times. And during one of those standups Silva will catch him and either finish him with strikes or submission.
Word on the street is that Montreal Mauler is close to 200lbs. Sounds to me like he is getting his body ready for a MW fight. A bulked up GSP is a nightmare for Silva. He wouldnt wait 10 seconds before shooting in and putting Silva on his back. From there, he is one of the most active fighters in the sport from the top position. If a fat out of shape Travis Lutter can pass Silva's guard, a freak like GSP certainly will be able to grind on Silva wear him out and get passed his guard. GSP is a cardio machine, he wouldnt stop taking Silva down. His pace wouldnt stop, he would just keep coming. And I dont think Silva could handle being pushed like that. He would break Silva down and take him out of his game. Unless Silva lands a flying knee, I see no other outcome than a decision win for St. Pierre.
The list if fairly short. Noone in the MW division or LHW division is going to outstrike him. He wont fight Machida or Nogueira. Mousasi fights for strikeforce. So this is it. Unless you guys think there are other guys out there that can beat him. These guys are not only the ones most likely to beat him, but most likely to fight him as well.
