This could be the most exciting matchup in MMA history. It could actually could happen too, either guy can take this. Let the polling begin. Peace.

I'd personally give it Shogun, Anderson would win a standup war, Shogun's striking is a little wild, whereas Anderson's is razor sharp, but I think Shogun would win by submission. He would likely take the sensible option, and not stand with Silva.

IMO... Silva has the better standup. If I had to bet I'd take Silva.

Shogun is one of my favorite fighters, but I don't think his stand up can match Anderson's (other then the knees which they both seem to be nearly equal). I think Anderson has better striking with his hands he is on target with very crisp clean shots, and he doens't throw wild. Lets not forget Anderson is a black belt in BJJ also. It would be a close one though... I think.

Im giving it to Anderson. He seems to only be getting better while Shogun is awesome but he hasnt really shown any growth. This would be an amazing fight though. Both are great multi faceted fighters. It would be interesting to see where it went.

Would be an interesting match to say the least. both fighters have equivelent weapons, both in stand up and on the ground.
Both are reputable fighters also, speaking from backround history of training regimes and previous fights.

So what does it come down to? Weight? Experience in which weight class this match would be held?

Picture it that way. Shogun drops 20 pounds to fight Anderson, then Anderson will by far have an upper advantage keeping in mind that he's fought at his weightclass for so long. However, Shogun would have the upper hand in weight, being that he'd be the bigger guy (not that that would determine a fight's outcome) but in personal preference, wouldnt you want to be the larger fighter?

Now picture the vice versa of this, and Anderson going up to 205...

Down the long run, it comes down to, who will be the better fighter that night..

The fans would win this fight, it would be a war!
