I know this isn't the conventional wisdom here on Sherdog, but isn't is possible that we're all underestimating Silva?

I mean, Weidman beat him twice, legitimately, but aside from Chael, no one else has come remotely close. And Weidman is freakishly talented. It's not like Anderson lost to a scrub.

Maybe Silva will never be champ again. But I think the big question is how he recovers from surgery. A full recovery will lead to an Anderson that can beat most MWs. A so-so recovery will lead to an Anderson who is still dangerous, but beatable. A bad recovery will lead to an Anderson who needs to retire.

Having said that, Anderson with even a so-so recovery beats Shogun by KO in the 2nd round.

Actually what happened is:

Anderson said that before the fight vS Demian Maia at Abu Dhabi, but Dana White was so pissed at Anderson's game playing vs Maia, that he told Anderson if he did that again, the UFC will release him!

So Dana White pulled the plug on the 170 title bout vS GSP.

GSP was cage side expecting Anderson to win, and Dana White to announce the Anderson vS GSP match @170.

Dana White did not enter the cage to put the belt on Anderson, and said that was the first time he ever did that.

It believe it would be a competitive fight. Andys speed has slowed considerably and I give shogun the power advantage. Shoguns chin is still exceptional (getting put away by a h bomb is nothing to be ashamed of). 4 years ago I would of picked Anderson any day of the week but I would take shogun now.

This has been my dream matchup for a long time.
