    After UFC 100 Silva called out Frank Mir for some reason, thats probably because Silva knows he matches up well with him, Mir has average standup and he doesnt have good wrestling to take silva down at will and we all saw how Stephan Bonnar couldnt take silva down despite he is a much more bigger man.

    That being said i was expecting Silva to call Cain out for some reason i think he has the accuracy to hurt Cain with his strikes and than go for the finish, he also has good TD defense and excellent cardio, he is not good at getting back to his feet thou so if Cain took him down at least 1 time per round Silva would get beat up from start to finish.

    This is not a troll thread i think many of you guys are going to agree with me, Silva matches up well with Cain and he has experienced a wrestler beating on him for 22 minutes and he won the rematch so what do you guys think?

    EDIT: Silva just signed a 10 fight contract so he probably feels like age is not getting past him yet.

    TS was it you who said he was Mexican and hated on Cain? That's so random and I don't get that. Also no Cain would dominate Anderson.

    Silva vs. Overeem is the fight to make.

    Cain batters Anderson into retirement.

    That likely has something to do with it.

    Ok well Anderson with Fedor are the greatest MMA fighters in history. But Cain would more likely beat him in a fight.

    Anderson would beat Struve.

    Anderson is a better striker than Overeem. But the size, power and grappling could allow Overeem to beat Anderson.

    Silva is in the business of being a smart champ. This isn't Pride, and he doesn't HAVE to beat HW's to be relevant. The Bonnar fight was a gift to the UFC, the fans, and his bank account...nothing more.

    It can only be drugs.

    People are going to start saying Anderson could beat 2 lions and an armored tank at the same time.

    Anderson wants to fight the champ one weight class below him and has all but admited he is terrified of fighting the champ one weight class above him. You think he has a chance against the champ TWO weight classes above him? A champ with great wrestling and GnP?

    Remember that Sonnen would have beat him(twice) if it weren't for brain farts.

    If Anderson is going to fight HWs - and wants a chance in hell of not getting killed - he needs to fight someone like Schaub. Even then it wouldn't be guaranteed.

    Anderson is not Prime Fedor. He's good for his weight, but not even top 10 baddest on the planet.
