I liken it to Brock getting tagged by Carwin and surviving that to win. Despite Brock surviving and being able to exploit Carwins terrible stamina WE ALL COULD SEE he had an exploitable hole and that hole was one that relied on his opponent also having a hole (stamina) for him to mount a come back win. without such a hole in his opponent (as Cain showed) Brock lost via that hole.

Anderson has never faced someone who does fight that game who has no such hole and that seems very fortunate for him as that template fighter exists in abundance in the divisions below and above him.

What people here conveniently forgett is that while A. Silva has smoked both wrestlers and BJJ practitioners, Anderson Silva has literally NEVER been tested against American Jiu Jitsu artists. Fact.

I rarely critique rankings lists since I could never put one together myself, but this is just the most God-awful rankings of MWs at that time I've ever been privy to. I don't even know where to bein with this unholy mess.

Shields is the BJJ elite at WW with his buddy Diaz and Penn, but at MW, there's Jacare, Maia and Paul Harris. Shields got RNC'ed by Mayhem, couldn't hold Kampmann down and had the hardest time subbing Daley. Actually who is the highest level guy he subbed? So he would have to go five round with the best catch artist ever, because Silva is a catch artist Judochopchop, not a round winner.

if u dont remember this was his first fight at ww and had a tough weight cut which caused him to gas early. didnt see that with the gsp fight. i expect him to come strong this weekend against ellenerger.
