I take Silva in any MMA fight, period, regardless of opponent or weight class, that isn't named Brock, or Lesnar. Or Fedor.

I'd even give Anderson even odds against Mur at 265 lbs. Junior could give Anderson trouble as well though. Everyone else, Anderson mauls. GSP'd have a shot at Anderson too.

Other than that, forget it.

Silva takes this one 99% of the time. I don't actually know much about Mousasi, because I've never really given a shit about Strikeforce or any of their b-level superstars. Just looking at Mousasi on wikipedia, he's beaten some good fighters, but he doesn't face the same kind of competition that Anderson absolutely destroys in every single fight he is in. So, until Mousasi manhandles the best in the world, like Silva has done for years, I honestly believe he wouldn't even provide much competition for the Spider. I'm sure all of you SF flunkies are gonna bitch and moan cuz I just said all of that. Oh well, bitch away women.

At what weight class, WW or MW?


I would LOVE to see this fight happen this or next year. I hate it when great fighters cant/wont fight each other during their prime. Chuck vs Wandy for example........
Why would they fight at WW. Both have had recent fights at MW and LHW, hell Mousasi even fought at HW his last outing at Dynamite.

and what division would they do it?

catchweight or middleweight?
I don't think they would need to fight at a catchweight (see above). IMO I'd like to see this at LHW.

Okay, which is it?
Anyone, period.
Or Brock. Or Fedor. Or Junior. Or GSP?

Mousasi may not have fought some of the caliber that AS has, but his opponents haven't all been cans. He is a solid striker and very dangerous with his hands. That being said I agree that at the moment Silva takes this one the majority of times however I think that Mousasi would be a dangerous opponent for Silva.

If it's at light-heavyweight and it most likely would be, I'd pick Mousasi by taking Anderson down and knocking him out with strikes there.

As soon as he does? Its hard to say this would be is toughest fight because i really respect Henderson, and Nate, but i can see his argument for sure!

And to say he has beat no one, is what makes us fans of MMA turn away in pain...

Please look at his 28 - 2 record and his last 15 wins streak against guys like Danis Kang, Melvin Manhoef, Mark Hunt, Renato Sabral, Sokoudjou and Gary Goodridge.

Are any of these guys as good as Anderson nooo, but has he beat anyone? Yes.....

I agree with all posts before me, that Mousasi would get beat down against Anderson, but if the argument was about would it be his toughest fight?

We will just have to see how he does against Hendo after he rapes Shields of his belt. Styles makes fights, but if he can KO Mousasi which i doubt he could, then i will stick with Hendo being Andersons hardest to date right there with the Old Nate.

The new Nate? Who knows if Hendo can get through him.... I really wanted to see that fight...

Hendo has proven himself against the best over and over and held 2 belts in Pride, and was a minute away from most likely finishing Anderson in that first round if the bell didn't ring. The closest ive seen Anderson almost get taken out since Travis Lutter .

If Mousasi went and beat a big name like Wandy, Rich, Jones, Cotoure, i wouldn't be the least bit surprised or look at him any different then i do now, he already proved to me with the way he dominates his challengers, that he right there to be his toughest fight....

I would love to see Mousasi fight some nasty hands like Rashad or Rampage if he sniffed at UFC. Machida against Mousasi imo would be Epic!

I cant wait to see how Hendo does against Mousasi,

I say Silva finishes Mousasi in the 2nd/3rd at present time. A few years down the track, I'll say that Silva still wins but won't finish him. I really can't see Gegard coming to the UFC though ... if he does, I'd prefer to see Jon Jones v Gegard Mousasi.

Thanks to limba for this AWESOME sig

Yeah i was thinking about that match up, it guess it all matters how JJ does against Vera and his next tough opponent.

Same with Mousasi once he gets through King Mo, i see Hendo giving him the fight of his life.

Down the road i see Mousasi actually beating Jon Jones.... His boxing is just to top notch for Jones, and i see Mousasi to relaxed and focused to get caught by some crazy flying spinning elbow.

If Mousasi trained for Jon Jones style it would end in Jon's demise.... And his first TKO

ANYONE? REALLY?

Mousasi = would be close but I take the Spider

But there guys would beat him...due to size

Lesnar
Big Nog
Fedor

No doubt...you cannot give up 90 pounds to a stellar fighter and still win. I don't see it. Fedor is probably closest size wize but ask Silva himself I bet he does not think he could take Fedor, if you have doubts watch the Travis Lutter / Silva fight, I am guessing Fedor would take a similar approach.

U bet he doesn't think he can take Fedor???

Not only would i think i could take Fedor if i did the Shit Anderson has done, but he says it clear in this interview....


"Anderson Silva obviously isn't concerned about the size of Forrest Griffin. Apparently, a light heavyweight is only a light snack for "The Spider".
Yahoo News reports:
White said that Silva also expressed an interest in fighting heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko, who is under contract with Affliction. White has made several attempts to sign Emelianenko, none successful.
Soares (Silva's manager) confirmed that Silva would like a fight with Emelianenko and said that size wouldn’t be an issue. Silva walks around between fights at 215 and Emelianenko fights around 230.
“We’d come in at about 220 if we ever got that fight,” Soares said. “Anderson thinks that would be a great fight for him. He didn’t say he expected to blow him out, but he thinks he can give him a very good fight.”


http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1...alls-out-fedor

But i have to add that he ALSO said that Fedor would win in a Fight between the 2....

SOO was he being Humble? Or was he telling the truth about what he believes before? And is now taking the Humble approach? Who knows... But he said he could at one point!

And he says it here at the end of the Vid that Fedor isn't better but yeah....
