hmm i think its just a case of before and after

before = AS with no money
after = AS can now buy money...if that makes any sense

anyways, the dude was super poor at that time and he always trained and played soccer so it would be kinda hard to get fat

the guy was just very skinny, you can see him even in his weigh in photos for his fight at 205, hes not exactly ripped, the new AS is just a chubby one, thats why he thinks he can still get down to 170, his legs are still very skinny and his shoulders are still very small

Yeah, people don't seem to want to believe that AS in fight shape is actually around 195 the same as GSP. He doesn't carry extra muscle he has relatively large thighs for kicking power but the rest of his body is pretty lean for 185. He has a large lanky frame that makes him look bigger than he actually is the same can be said for Bones who is like 220 but looks like he weighs 240. 170 from 195 at 6'2" and 36 years old is a really difficult cut I don't think he can make it without hurting his performance if he can make it at all.

Is Anderson Silvas fighting weight at MW documented anywhere? Some MW Fighters manage to get up to 205 on fight night. I always assumed Anderson would be roughly the same. If he fights at 195, that would surprise me.

such huge differences in fighting style..but is it really important that he had 2 more wins nearly 15 years ago?

His new style is more intriguing because you don't when the magic is going to happen. The only time his fights suck is when his opponents don't want to fight him at all (Maia)

According to him that is what he has been making the actual cut down from. He gets down to 194-198 from dieting and training camp before the week leading up where he starts to prepare for the cut. He was at 195 for Chael and Vitor I believe. He is bigger at 205 because he doesn't need to have a strict diet that is weight bulk not muscle bulk though he said himself that he doesn't feel any stronger at LHW. What he weighs at fight time isn't really important. You are going to be muscle/strength wise whatever you were a week out or less not more and at peak physical condition he is 195 give or take a pound or two.

Man I don't know if those could be ammy fights.. In 1997 mma was so unevolved and these were decent fights. I mean silva raped but the plethora of skills involved here is fantastic.

Are they PRO fights? Breen is a moron half the time, I like TJ but a lot of the sherdog guys I give less consideration that I would almost any of the regular posters here.

I cant stand Hunt she exudes incompetence every time she opens her mouth.

Cool. I didn't realize he'd spoken about this stuff. I would love to see some links to any interviews.
