If the UFC just let guys rise to the top on their own instead of trying to manufacture superstars, they'd have much better luck.
The way they do it now just doesn't work. Eventually these guys have to fight actual fighters and they always choke in the end.
How did Silva choke? Silva has a alot of talent I can promise anyone that.
I seen him fight against Brown and he nearly KO a top 5. Brown is a fucking monster too.
Silva is going nowhere he is a popular fighter with fans, he is bordering on brilliant at times.
If I were to be forced to compare I would see Silva with Mcgregors gas tank would be top 5.
