    Be real.

    It's okay if you do, but don't be waiting in the shadows until someone beats Anderson and act like you knew all along. Make a bold prediction.

    Silva vs the most effective move in the history of fighting - the double leg takedown.

    anyone who ever says they knew someone would win all along is a dummy imo. a fight is a fight. anything can happen, and almost never will someone beat someone 10 out of 10 times.

    if sonnen wins, it'll be via Decision or TKO (Cut)
    if silva wins, it'll be via TKO (Punches) or Submission (Guillotine or Triangle Choke)

    sonnen doesn't have a chance. he said it himself - if he stands up with silva, he's fucked.

    pretty much everyone's idea going into a fight with silva has been "i'm gonna take him down", then they go in, miss, get smashed and made a fool of, and quickly abandon the takedown attempts for attempts at staying alive - which never works out.

    i think sonnen CAN beat him...but probably WONT...just another 2nd tier fighter for silva....which is y i think anderson is the 3rd most over rated fighter

    Rich Franklin is an elite MW.
    Nate Marquardt is an elite MW.

    All the good fights for Anderson are at LHW... or k1.

    and beaten.

    silva has fought a lot of impressive up-and-comers, who all turned out to be less than impressive when they fought him.

    i really don't think he's overrated.

    heres the thing.. i believe sonnen will get it on the ground at some point, but i dont think he'll be able to keep him down for 5 full minutes in a round, or be able to repeat that for 5 rounds.. sonnen is a solid fighter, a great wrestler, but he grinds out a lot of decisions and going 5 rounds with silva i think is to dangerous i dont see him going 25min and silva not catching him

    if he was a wrestler who took it down and had GnP thats been known to finish fights in the first 2 rounds id not only predict sonnen but bet on him in real life, unfortunately thats not the case

    but if hes supposed to b one of the best pound for pound then he should fight the best...when matt hughes (who im not really a fan of)..and chuck had their defense streaks...they fought the best...not up and comers...silva needs to stop runnin like a bitch and fight sumone who matters
