Has no one noticed that Silva mentioned he plans to go on for 10 more years undefeated?

I think that finally puts an end to the retirement rumors.

Well... yea... if you are playing MMA Fighter Top Trumps, then Silva and Shogun look very similar on their respective cards. But, come on now, they look nothing alike when they actually fight. Completely different fighters.

Like I said boyo... Top trumps.

I could just as easily counter you by saying, they punch differently. They kick differently. They have different guards. They are different in the clinch. They are different dude. Nothing that Shogun throws is anything like Silva and vice versa. Only on paper they are similar. In reality, they are not.

... All you have to do is watch Shogun and Anderson fight to see they are not exactly the same at all. They move differently on their feet and on the ground, they react differently, they attack and defend differently.

You could use the same arguement that Thiago Silva uses Muay Thai and has a black belt in BJJ so he is also the same?

It's rediculous. Just because they use the same arts, can weigh the same if they want to and are both champions does not mean they are the same fighter. Not at all. To even suggest it has my head wobbling with confusion as to how someone could even think that let alone voice the opinion.
