I know I know, I ride the guys nuts but here me out here.

IF! Just if the UFC was to set up a rematch between Thiago Silva vs Alexander Gustafson in Brazil, in about 3 months time. How would you see the fight play out?

I mean Thiago would walk out with the home crowd, walking in 9-0 in Brazil, ring rust would no longer be a factor, he's now settled at a camp he likes. He's working a gameplan, he's working a guard.

Do you think Gustafsson would be able to play off the exact same long reach striking gameplan without Thiago making any changes?

And if it did go to a decision, would Thiago win because of them controversial judges??

This is all hypothetical as the UFC never make rematches for no real reason. But just wanna get you guy's opinions.

Thiago isnt a top ten light heavyweight, he'd get mashed by Alexander like he did the first time unless he uses monkey urine.

I don't remember seeing Thiago getting mashed by Gustaf in any other round than the first... In fact I remember the third round Silva being far more efficient with his striking and landing a similar amount giving Thiago a small case to win the 3rd round.

Personally I think Gus wins the decision again. His size gives him an advantage for sure and even without it I think he is the more well rounded fighter.

I love Thiago too, but he needs to spend more time training and less time practising his mean mug in the mirror. I honestly think he's doing so well in brazil because they don't test him for PEDs there. Bear in mind I'm basing this purely on the age and physicality of Silva.

Same goes for Belfort. TRT=PED

As far as Gustafasson/Silva 2 goes, I'd pick Gustaffson.

I didn't agree with what Florian said last night about that being the best Silva has ever looked. IMO he looked his best against Vera (for whatever reason) and Calvacante was doing fairly well until he tried that spinning back fist.

I like Thiago too but the same result would happen as the first fight. Gustf style is taylor made to beat Thiagos and Shoguns. Just that styles beat styles thing that goes on in this thing called MMA

He would slaughter either of them on the ground if he took it there. Standing would get interesting.

There's no doubt Thiago looked awesome on saturday, but i think a rematch would play out exactly the same, I just think that Gus is a far superior technical striker and his reach would be too much

Some great thoughts on how this may play out if they were to face one another again, but either way I'd like to see it and I'm sure others would too.
