I was impressed, although I'm a bit worried that the fact that machida seemed to have his number at the end of the fight may weigh on him mentally.

He now knows that he may be the best 5 round fighter in the world at 185, but he's not the biggest badass.

Silva meant Chris had immense drive/motivation to compete in MMA. In other words, he thinks "The Chris" is "hungry" and is capable of great things.

It is one of those expressions that only makes sense in the original language and becomes weird/hilarious when translated directly.

Is it possible for him to have great cardio, being absolutely massive for 185.

The Cut must really drain him.

Was there really still some doubt? Honestly? I knew this guy was going to be a world champion at some point after his fight with Alessio Sakara.

I agree with everything else put this point is questionable in the same way that Christian Butto was rumored to have really strong hands. Proof?
