Silva has good standup and BJJ...his weakness is wrestling. I agree with those that said Hendo and Lindland. They are the perfect matchup to do so.



Although that may be his weakest area,(compared to the rest) IMO it's not a weakness. Nate was supposed to tool him in wrestling and that was a beautiful reversal right near the end.



Well, it wasn't technically a reversal, as Nate didn't secure the takedown yet...Silva was just able to finish the takedown. I would still say that his wrestling is indeed a weakness. I guarantee that wouldn't happen as easily to Hendo or Lindland. Also, both fighters that have tried takedowns on SIlva in the UFC have succeeded with ease...and Lutter got the mount with little effort as well. One takedown doesn't mean that he has great wrestling.

I don't think the Lutter fight should really be used as a reference at all honestly. He was like one month out of knee surgery. Point taken regardless, and I agree, but I don't think it's fair to reference his performance while injured as a benchmark of his ability in a given area.

Fair enough...I just think that Anderson is fortunate that he is in the UFC weightclass with the least wrestling talent. Could you imagine the troubles he would have if he were 15 pounds lighter?

i think hendo would be able to take him down and GnP but I don't think that fight will happen unless Rampage beats Hendo and Silva beats Franklin.

the guy with the best chance of beating silva is matt lindland. i would still give anderson the edge in this fight. matts best chance would be to put him up against the fence and pound on him but thats been proven to be harder to do to silva every time he has a fight. hendo would give him a good fight but his fight with misaki makes me doubt that he can beat a taller more technical striker whos footwork is on another level then his. anderson is far from unbeatable but for the moment i cant think of anyone who can.

Cung Le v. Silva. Hippy started it, and I think it would be great. What does Silva do against another striker of equal talent?



Silva would obliterate Cung Le. I am one of those guys who hasn't been impressed with Cung Le just yet. He has been fed several cans who didnt have the balls to press him with stand up skills. Once you get past Le's kicks, he doesn't have much (at least that we have seen yet).

I'd say someone that would be good against silva would be a good thai boxer and clincher. similar to silvas specs, but he good overwhelm silva in the clinch.

now if someone like that existed...

henderson could give him a run for his money



I agree, I think Hendo would beat him at 185. Silva is awesome , but no one is unbeatable.


for me is 50% for each other,great fight
anderson proved that he knows the ground and he is so tecnic

the ufc need s to stop with bs and bring in paulo filiho and dennis kang,,,up the ante in this mwt division...be nice to see lindland too but...not sure that will happen any time soon...paulo may be the man at 185 right now....think he trains with silva so not sure if that will pan out,.belt wise... but it will definitely expose alot of 185'ers



Definitely. Kang is the number one guy I want to see in the UFC soon. I think Henderson has a great chance against Silva as well.

He is beatable...he's lost 4 fights. Him vs. Filho would be nice.

I honestly think 7 People that can beat Anderson Silva.

Rich Franklin
Filho
Dan Henderson
Dave Terrell (if he dropped weight)
Travis Lutter (if he can cut weight and have Cardio)
Matt Lindland
and The guy who I honestly think that would beat Silva in a round 1 TKO via strikes would be




EVAN TANNER.

This guy is Anderson Silva's kryptonite, sure I might be a LITTLE biased, but I honestly think Evan Tanner could take Anderson down and punch him to a submission.

Well I agree with Lindland/Filho/Hendo having a chance of beating him but why Lutter? Silva beat him with his own game with horrible knees before the fight. Also Dave Terrell would get killed if he fought Silva imo. Tanner same. Lindland can get the TKO because of his excellent ground skills and control..Hendo same thing and his good chin and Filho same as Lindland but they are friends so they probably wont fight. Franklin gona be beat just like the first fight =)

Conversely, wouldn't that mean that getting mounted once, doesn't mean his wrestling is bad?

I think he has great jits and can use it to counter being taken down very well... I don't know where all the "hole" in his game talk came from... The guy beat Lutter on the ground after all, was able to pretty much dominate Nate, and didn't even give Leben a chance to try and take it to the ground... Any fighter that wants to GnP Silva has to get through his strikes which is no easy task, and deal with his BJJ which is top notch... IMO, tough fight for anyone right now
