Toquinho would have a shot but it'd be a disaster if Anderson got him in the Muay Thai clinch.

Maia vs. Palhares would have more sub attempts than Subway at lunchtime.

I am the foremost authority on my opinion.

Like hell. Any fighter dumb enough to do what he did in the Marquardt fight will never hold a belt.

I think honestly it'd be more like Maia beating him on the feet and stuffing take-downs for three sounds. Maia could shrug off those heelhooks in his sleep IMO.

It'd be good if Jacare was in the UFC so we could see some awesome matchups between these 3,.

Honestly I really don't see how he could lose if he isn't plain stupid. He only needs to get a quick hold of Silva, wich many others have done before him and after that, he would most likely take him out with a quick sub.

In my mind he is just to strong for Silva and way too good on the ground. His Takedowns are nasty as well and he is just so athletic on top of that.

Like somebody mentioned in clinch postion he would lose.. I really find it very hard to believe that. Harris would just pick Silva up and dump him on his head in that postion.


I really think Maia must be the only one who could defend against a guy like PaulHarris. He won't ever submit Harris either.. but he could very well control him on the ground maybe and win a UD. But even here, I think Harris is just too strong and too athletic for somebody like Maia, also the standup could be in favor of Harris as well.

Palhares looks like an anaconda or an alligator when he catches a leg - the way he rolls on the ground with his opponent....

I love that s**t!

If we're talking about Palhares, I remember Dan Henderson beating him up pretty good. He didn't demolish him but he definitely just kept shrugging him off and hitting him.

Anderson has dealt with strong guys before. Anderson is deceptively strong...

That correct Cali, however Dan is an elite Wrestler. And Pahlharres was still able to get him too the ground and even almost finished him with the kneebar as well.

Dan is a complete different fighter than Andy, MMA math doesn't really work here and one of the worst matchups for Paul Harris as well. Has Dan ever been submited in his career actually?
