    Yeah, I don't rate Bisping as any kind of real threat to Silva. He's better than his haters make him out to be, but he just hasn't got anything Silva hasn't already seen and beaten, and he's not exceptional in any particular area. He doesn't have the power to KO Silva, doesn't have the wrestling to put him on his back and keep him there, and doesn't have the sub game to threaten him on the ground. I can't see it going particularly well for Bisping, especially if "I exist to make your life agony" Silva shows up.

    I'm not really sure of Weidman's chances of getting the win, but he could probably at least make it interesting for a while. His standup obviously isn't on Silva's level, but his GnP has enough oomph in it to potentially put Silva in some trouble on the ground, if he can get him there. He's got as good a shot as anybody else at MW at the moment.

    the person who beats Silva is gonna be somebody like Weidman or Sonnen imo- a strong wrestler with a big gas tank and good striking defense.

    or someone with even freakier standup, but i dont see that happening for a while.

    What I am observing about MMA in general, and about the fights with Silva is, nobody ever manages to outbalance him. That's not so much Silva's achievement, but his opponents' fault, and I won't even pretend I know why that is the case.

    I think, and don't laugh, that the capoeira background might play a role; his opponents are always very tense, while he moves like a dancer.




    Was that Silva being so good, or Griffin simply boxing like a beginner?

    The same with Sonnen and the backfist.


    I for my part think Silva's ripe for a defeat. IF the guy he fights comes in there to fight him, and not to pull off "the usual".

    Just looking at this gif, I actually think it's both. After the first half-assed jab gets interrupted he resorts to shitty haymakers. Silva moves very good, though.

    His heart was visible, and the dismal sack that maketh excrement of what is eaten.

    You know it's easy to look like magic against a guy who Decides to Lose after 20 seconds.

    Silva vs Okami 2, now that was an impressive display. More so, cause it was against Okami who fought with the Spirit of Budo.

    Funny you mention Roy, he was in attendance that night. Him and Silva were trying to set up a boxing match. Unfortunately, Dana sed no. Then Roy got KO'd a few times and it all faded away.
