"I cheered for Silva since I fought him more recently. Silva has great impact with his striking whereas Brown is more of a brawler, and his chin was yet to be tested. Silva dominated the beginning but couldn't capitalize, and this messed up his game." "Brown is a difficult fighter to beat if it goes the distance. He has an endless gas tank so it becomes difficult to outpace him in the end. Silva should have tried to finish him and not go to the ground when he had the chance, but it looked as if he was tired. Also he tired himself out going for the choke. Silva's choice to go to the ground was a blessing for Brown." "Silva needs to learn to pace himself. He's the type of fighter to swarm you, rest,and swarm again but he has trouble controlling his pace. It also seems he looses steam once the fight doesn't go his way. On the other hand, Brown is just a monster. His cardio is double of other UFC fighters." "(Brown) is the opposite of a fighter who comes out of nowhere and disappears instantly. He's been beating mid tier fighters, his confidence is up, and he improved his game as well. Before he was a brawler, now his technique looks crisper. He added takedowns, knees, and elbows to his arsenal and he knows how to play his opponent. It makes you wonder how you will beat him if you can't finish him in one round. He became a great fighter. His rise is like that of Hendricks." "There is no easy fight in the top ten. Brown is the most winnable. I know him well because I fought him before. His wrestling is not good and his chin isn't tested. He also showed weakness against bodyshots. However, because of his gas tank, it is hard to say that he is weaker than the rest of the top ten." "Whoever my opponent is, I will have a mindset of "Kill me or I'll kill you," and "I'll kill you even if it kills me." I can knock out anybody and everybody has a chin. I go on the ring to die so I do not think about the outcome of the fight nor do I garauntee victory." "The more opponents I have to face, the stronger I will become."
