Although known for his punching prowess, Vitor doesn't shy away from taking it to the mat if it suits him, or the development of the match necessitates it; eg., he's getting tagged.

He's not some balls to the wall spaz. He's actually somewhat methodical. And given that he'll have an Xtreme Couture gameplan, it's not far fetched to think that he'll attempt to take AS down.

I don't think Chael had even been touched with anything besides the takedown. He sort of layed back into it and was ontop of Silva in just a couple of seconds after rolling him like it was a clinic.
Chael definitely got rocked at the start of the fourth, I remember thinking that was it because he was hurt. That was right before Silva ended up on top, not sure if Chael went down or got doubled but he did get rocked. I could have sworn Anderson had the mount too but that I could be wrong, I just remember Chael rolling him over like it was nothing because I went crazy. Over a roll, I know you don't need to mock me haha.

But on topic, if anyone not named Chael Sonnen is going to beat Anderson at MW it will be Vitor. But I don't think it will be classic flurry and finish Vitor, he's working with Couture so I'm expecting a serious gameplan not just let's stand and trade.

i think people are way too hyped up on vitor right now, much like the machida hype train. i never bought into the machida hype, and i'm not buying into the vitor hype, either. this fight isn't taking place in the year 2000. it's taking place tomorrow night. and even if it was taking place in vitor's prime he would still lose.

i think vitor is going to get wrecked with a quickness.

I just wanna add quick that at Chuteboxe years ago Wand was in his prime and the word was that he tooled Anderson in sparring. And we all know what Vitor did to Wand back then.

I think you're slightly ahead of yourself there, when vitor fought Wand he wasn't "The axe murderer" yet, he was still young and also Wanderlei is not Anderson. Who knows how that fight would have gone with Vitor had Wand not gotten tagged early, but Wand has little head movement and throws long winging punches, Anderson is the exact opposite. Not to mention when Anderson was at chute boxe he wasn't the Anderson we see now.

Personally I think Vitor's skills are constantly overrated.
So we was friendly with the Gracies- that doesn't mean he is invincible.

Personally what I think is going to happen is that Anderson Silva will win in the first round by Muai Thai clench knees to the head. If it happens exactly that way, someone owes me a beer.

as far as i'm concerned, vitor hasn't been all that relevant in years. his current win streak is nice, but it's not anything amazing b/c he hasn't fought much of anyone. his best win of those fights is probably franklin, and franklin is well past his prime. even chuck was seconds away from taking franklin out before he got caught with that love tap that shattered his glass jaw.

and vitor is only a few years younger than anderson so age shouldn't be a factor. i'm just confused as to why everyone thinks that vitor is so good right now. sure he has pretty fast hands (or at least used to), but so what. fast hands don't automatically equal a win. just like running fast doesn't instantly make you a good football player.

anderson is one of the best in the world, and is a well-rounded fighter. it's amazing to me that so many people are on the vitor hype train b/c he has one thing, and one thing only, going for him, fast hands.

anderson easily takes this. he lives for fighting strikers who are willing to trade with him.

Agreed, all fighters are much different now than they were then. But people are acting like Silva has always been the best or the biggest or whatever.

The truth is if Anderson Silva (who was at 175lbs and losing occasionally) was in there with Vitor when Vitor was HW/LHW Champ, people would have thought Silva was being lead to the slaughter and they would have been right.


Funny how much different things are now.

What do Andy and JBJ have in common? They are VERY talented and standout fighters unlike Sonnen. Yep, thats it. It boils down to envy. For some reason people find it easier to hate high level super talented and accomplished individuals as opposed to mediocre people. you see it all the time whether its the super hot chick or the guy with all the money and girls. People are going to hate and Andy haters are no different.

Most of the time the haters blame there disdain for Andy on his performance with Leites and Maia but its mostly Bullsh1t. The truth is he's been hated way before those fights.

Bottom line Andy is an awesome fighter, some will like him and some wont. If you fall in the category of those that dont then its okay(it really is) but dont act like you have some deep insight into the "real" Anderson Silva that everyone else lacks.
Yes, you've got me pegged. I dislike Anderson Silva because I 'envy' him

I offered no deep insight. I stated that his fighting is beyond unreal, but that as a person, he's beyond egotistical. And if you truly believe that Chael has always acted as he acted with Silva, then that's your prerogative. I don't recall him having anything bad to say about Okami, Miller, or Marquardt... in fact, I don't recall him having much to say at all. But you go with whatever suits your point, because you're clearly not open to the opinions of others. I don't like Anderson Silva the man. I very much enjoy and respect Anderson Silva the fighter. That's not deep. It's a simple fact. I also cannot help but have a hearty laugh at how you claim that it's okay not to like the man, but put down everyone who doesn't in the exact same breath. You're a real beaut.
