    Someone posted on Reddit

    "
    Before Silva's UFC debut there was a thread about "Who would be the next UFC champion that is not in the UFC", and someone made a detailed post on Silva, with examples, pictures and clips. They were absolutely convinced that he would be champion, and people were shitting all over him because Silva's record around that time was quite spotty (3 losses in his last 10 to Okami, Chonan and Takase)."

    Can anyone find this? Its here somewhere on Sherdogs (He mentioned that to me). And BTW - do anyone have early prediction posts like these? LIke someone predicting Jon Jones or Silva or any other fighter?

    A lot of people were pretty high on silva.

    When people picked leben to smash him they laughed like crazy.

    Most old threads were lost in the server shift two years ago or so. Tons of great stuff went up in smoke. Something before Silva entering the UFC still surviving?

    Yea I forgot the dudes name tho, he actually kept on posting for years here and probaby still does. He is a pretty recognizable poster I think he was a big Big Nog/Wand fan. I just don't remember his sn. He called it years ago. I'm sure someone with a better memory will get it the dude was pretty popular.

    Silva would be an underdog on websites like this one even after some of his destructive matrix performances. It was out of resentment, not because they actually thought he would lose. Keep in mind during his reign there was still the cult-leader Fedor continuing the myth before SF crashed it, and GSP was in his prime too.

    Anderson was coming off that ridiculous KO of Fryklund and was one of the favorites for the RotR tournament. He had a lot of momentum coming into the UFC. I don't think anyone expected him to beat Leben and Franklin like he did but I think a lot of people expected him to challenge for the title

    Haven't heard that SN in years lol. Naa I don't think it was him. From what I remember he wasn't an overt Wand fan like that just maybe a fan of plenty Brazilian fighters maybe with lIke an 04 join date. I think he kept posting for years tho. I think the posters that would know and still post here are @JKS and @EricaLovesUFC.

    If you watched Cage Rage back then you would know , there MW fighters were much better then the UFC & the loss 2 Okami was stupid as any1 can see .
    I didn't think they would sign him as the UFC was doing there US Champ + division of cans thing .
