    Obviously both guys are post-prime but they were the legends in their time. I've always dreamed for this fight when even Saki wasn't considering to join mma. I think it would be a legend fight. I know Silva fought MW most of his career and Saki fought HW even tho he is too small for that division but he made it to his advantage with his lighting fast combos. They both had fights LHW. Anderson likes to fight standing so lets say they are fighting under kickboxing rules with the small gloves in a cage. Who wins and how?

    with kickboxing rules? saki would kill silva imo

    any top kickboxer vs silva would be the favorite to beat silva if it was under kickboxing rules... MMA would be way different though... I think lol.

    Mcgregor sleeps with your mom.

    At least that's the impression I'm getting.

    Kickboxers are having difficulties when trying to adapt mma gloves and rules. they aren't overrated. You could say same about Antonio Silva getting KOed by Rico Verhoeven under kickboxing rules.

    I gotta agree.

    I don’t see impressive footwork or amazing counter movement from them, even at the highest levels.
    I do see those things in boxing and MMA.

    They’re often a bunch of tall, rangy guys, that hit hard and have pain tolerance.
