Some of you are so full of it.
Shogun would get TKO'd by Silva? Give me a break.
I have stated this before, and will continue to bring it up. When, if ever, has Anderson had to fight someone with great standup? Never.
Dan Henderson? No. Hendo has a good chin and lots of power in that right hand, that's it. Bisping was beating his ass in that 2nd round until Dan caught him.
Chris Leben? You're joking.
Nate Marquardt? Uh, no.
Rich Franklin? IMO just like Hendo.
Forrest Griffin? Decent chin, sloppy striking.
Since the Vitor fight is off, it has still not been proven that Anderson is this "insane" stand up fighter. Everyone gives him credit for being so good, but REAL skill is shown when beating a guy who is just as dangerous on the feet as you. Anderson Silva HAS NOT done that.
Shogun has beaten TOP NOTCH strikers. He absolutely mauled Quinton Jackson, beat Chuck Liddell who IMO is more dangerous a striker than ANYONE Anderson has beaten, KO'd Overeem, beat Lil Nog who's boxing is incredible, and he BEAT Lyoto Machida. He won that fight, only Machida fans disagree.
Quit using the MMA Math with the whole, Silva tooled Forrest who beat Shogun non sense as well. Shogun's knee was completely f'd up prior to that, he couldn't train and gassed. If his cardio had been up he would have never gassed and lost to Griffin. The Mark Coleman fight, eh, he had an off night. The same can be said in regards to Silva's "close call" against Travis Lutter. Yes, Silva won that fight, but he was almost finished.
Anderson Silva is overrated, he's good not great. It just shows the UFC MW division is garbage and that the LHW division is that much better.
IMO Machida would beat Silva as well.
Everything u just said is just 100% pure Personal opinion so where do u get off saying other people are FULL OF IT, when there just STATING there opinion JUST LIKE U ARE?!
I swear dude u just want to start shit more then actually debate
And blindly saying Anderson cant fight great strikers, when he is known as one of the best strikers in UFC, and has ONLY dominated every guy he has ever fought.....
So judging off his Pure Dominance where does Shogun become a better Striker???
So were going off watching how CHUCK LIDDELL was beating Shogun in stiking until the KO shot, and even MARK COLEMAN landed some nasty shots and almost KO'ed him.... I think Anderson MIGHT be able to pull strikes off and finish him if Coleman even lands one big hit .....
And even if Chuck is a better striker then Nate, that doesn't mean he is as good as Anderson.... Rashad, and Rampage both KO'ed Liddell does that make them better strikers then Anderson.... No
So all your saying is blind opinion and assuming Shogun can stand with Anderson, and saying how people are full of it for giving there Opinion.... Great...
