Nate had trouble getting the takedown then when he did he could do absolutely nothing with it. Silva by KO round 2

We don't even know if he will be as good as he was. So, I think it would be wise to reserve judgment till he has a couple of fights under his belt again.

Unfortunately I think Silva would whoop Tanner especially with the layoff he's had. Now that Nate got beaten down badly by Anderson I don't think there's anyone in that division that can stop him.
Bring in Filho though and we'll have a new champion.

Tanner was / is a good fighter but not as good as Silva. Silva would KO him just like Franklin did.

Tanner is going to come back strong, training with the Chute training camp.

As I watch the ass wopping anderson put on Rich and Nate it only makes me think of the ass wopping Rich put on Tanner. Come on unless Hendo moves down or someone else comes in Anderson will be king for a long time

I think Tanner would stand a good chance myself. I think Rich just has his number just like Silva has Rich's number and Chuck has Titos number. Tanner is great at ground and pound and in the clinch and with knees although I dont think a good gameplan would involve clinching with anderson silva and exchanging knees. I would much rather see this matchup than Franklin Silva 2.

I can't even believe this is posted. Tanner stands no chance now and even in his prime I think Silva would beat him. On his feat or on the ground.

Evan Tanner is an incredibly underrated fighter. He was a self-made fighter for the first portion of his career, and when he started to actually lose, he began to seriously train. Tanner, I believe, is very intelligent and knows how to train well. Like most fighters who are stuck in a rut at one time or another, there are probably reasons for it. I personally think that Tanner would have a chance against Silva.

Hmmm, I think this thread makes more sense if you put Matt Lindland in the title instead.
