    Anderson wouldn't be shooting takedowns on him. Just striking.

    2018 Silva would get Ko'd badly .
    No chin left, speed/reflex aren't close to what they used to be

    Probably with Woodley dead?

    Assuming Andy is in his prime.

    This question is downright disrespectful to AS, assuming we're talking about his prime form and not him at 42yrs old.

    Im thinking outside of the box where Woodley is going to get his so called money fight. If Anderson and Woodley can go to WBO or K1 or Rizin at some point.

    Not sure but it would probably be boring as hell since neither guy likes to engage and rely on countering guys for the most part.

    Prime Silva would probably light him up if he wanted to though.

    Silva by a country mile, an overhand right will be easily dodged.

    Unless Woodley came out agressive even 2018 Andy would flatline him in embarrassing fashion.

    Didn't Woodley almost kill Wonderboy in a striking only fight from rounds 2-5?

    I think people under estimate how well Serra/Longo fighters throw illegal punches to the back of the head of bald goats.

    I might have to examine some Raging Al fights as well.

    Any version of Silva stops Woodley in a Muay Thai fight.
