No way lyoto is "much faster" than anderson. Lyoto is fast as hell, as many times as I rewatched machida/shogun, I could tell you that.

Oh speaking of awesome leg kicks, do you remember machida's double kick against tito? maybe not damaging at all, but it was fast as hell.

Be one heck of a fight, and one that would go to a decision I think. I'd bet on a Shogun victory, but not by much. Anderson Silva's got a very solid chin, he's taken some big shots and been hardly moved, so I don't see Shogun finishing him, but I do think Shogun is a better technical striker, and arguably the best technical striker in MMA. It's the fight at LHW I really want to see though, and I'm hoping Shogun beats Machida in the rematch to give us a chance of seeing this fight for the title.

First off, welcome to the forum man! =)

In terms of Shogun v Anderson, I say that Anderson wins it assuming Shogun employed a similar strategy that he used against Machida. If he was to do so, Anderson would very quickly catch one of the leg-kicks and drop him with a left cross (Irvin style), and then Shogun would be in BIIIG danger.

I wouldn't put money on it though, Shogun's a beast.

Thanks to limba for this AWESOME sig

if you are talking to me than thank you, and yeah anderson has too much reach and would catch or counter with a straight right or left BUT i think shogun has showed that you can never count him out.... and im also a sydney boy i moved up here from the south coast and im going to the ufc 110 theatre experience and would like to know where some after parties are it would be awesome to know some people who know something about MMA

At this point it'a hard to go against Anderson but if there is a guy that can stand with him it would be Shogun Rua. I have no idea how this fight would go but hopefully if it happens it's a 5 rounder. Still can't believe people are still hating on the Shogun/Lidell fight, Shogun looked great in that fight. Most people on this forum were saying Chuck was gonna pick Shogun apart when Shogun was the one picking Chuck apart, also took him down nicely there at one point. When I saw Shogun shuffle his feet and then attack I knew he was back and healthy again, he had all the confidence in the world at that point. He gassed badly in the Forrest and Coleman fights which I assume was due to back to back ACL tears which to even come back and compete after an injury like that is incredible. 10 years ago 1 ACL tear was a career ender for any sport. Doctor's say it takes at least 1 full year to fully recover from one.
