    Who wins and is this Eric Silva last chance at a contender? Silva has tons of talent but cant seem to put it all together.

    Cool to see that a loss isn't going to stop Magny from taking fights all the time.

    With that said though I think Silva beats him, Silva usually only falters against guys who can really push the pace on him, i don't see Magny doing that.

    Every person who's gone past the first round with Silva in the UFC has beaten him. If Magny can weather the early storm, I like his chances in the latter rounds.

    Magny seems to be the logical choice, kinda funny how one loss dropped him so far down the Totem pole to most people

    Really hope to see Magny rebound here. He can do it if he stays calm early.

    I think Magny's only advantage is cardio, but he could be proficient enough everywhere else to get by on that. I can see Silva going at him hard for submissions and having a high chance of getting one, but there's always the chance of him gassing in the process leading to a Magny UD or late T/KO. I may flip a coin on that pick lol.

    As for Silva's career prospects, I don't think it will be any worse for him to lose than where he is now. I'm not sure there's any faith left in him to be the force he was supposed to be, so he could probably just rebound with a win against a special import like always and start the whole go 'round up again.

    Magny can be finished, Lim hurt him recently, he got finished by Mike Ricci... I like him, and can definitely see him winning, but first round Erick Silva is dangerous.

    He was just finished two weeks ago by Maia.

    Harder fight for Silva, imo. I'll take Magny.
