I don't agree. Machida who is not as good a striker as Silva toyed with BJ Penn. Silva would just destroy BJ on his feet. A small guy like BJ won't take Silva to the ground. Hendo had a lot of trouble getting Anderson to the ground, and he's a lot bigger, stronger and with much better wrestling.

Is there more to the story then this? This is a... strange thing to hear. I only read the first post so there might be an update... but you'd think that money loving Dana would let Anderson fight big names, no matter who they are. Excluding BJ sounds very strange to me.. is it because it stands a GREAT chance at beating him?

I don't think Rush can beat him, although I know it's possible. But I think that BJ has a better shot at it, I guess I can throw that fight idea out the metaphorical window.

I have stated this before, but i really think GSP could give Silva a run for his money.

GSP would need to take Silva down and keep him there. I think Silva's ground game is good enough to prevent a sub, but i think GSP would be able to grind out a decision.

the huge concerns for GSP would be to avoid trying to stand with Silva. We all know GSP has a very good stand up game, but Silva is elite (the most complete striker on his feet.) I mean Silva has great quickness and pin point precision with all of his strikes. GSP would simply be out classed on his feet.

Another concern would be going in and getting the takedown. I mean Silva is so quick that GSP is going to have to pick his spots carefully and once he is able to close the distance. He's going have to make sure he is able to get him down before Silva can manipulate him into the clinch(probaly one of the scariest places to be).

However like i said if GSP is able to get Silva down i really like his chances of being able to grind out a win.

GSP/Silva could be a very interesting fight considering the fact that GSP's strongest part of his game is by far Silva's weakest.

Penn/Silva could be interesting, however I'd rather see a 170 lb Penn against a 185 lb Silva in that fight, simply for the fact that despite the massive size different I think a non-obese Penn would be much more dangerous!

I'm with ya. They're both excellent fighters. GSP although dominate Fitch was unable to finish him along with BJ before. Silva on the other hand comes to FINISH FIGHTS. The margin for error is too great for any of the two. I have never seen a fighter who capitalizes with such precision. As an instructor told me he's like in the "Matrix where he sees everything in slow motion and knows what's coming before it even lands." Irvin is a great example. Don't know if you guys noticed this, but Anderson is a south paw, but he was in a different stance with his left leg forward blocking the low kick and he knocked him out with his off hand. Mind you a fighter who use to fight at 225. Anderson takes it 8 out of 10 matches. The ONLY chance for them is on the ground.

I still can't believe people are still debating BJ vs. Silva, the shit wouldn't even be close.

And Brock vs. BJ? Please...Anderson wouldn't be able to beat Brock, nor would BJ or anyone else with a 100+ weight differential.

You're just a cook...

Penn doesnt deserve a fight with Anderson Silva, nor a fight with GSP. He hasnt even defended his title once.

Fun trivia: In danish "kamp" means "match" or "fight". So Martin Kampmann really lives up to his name.
