    Zero training camp or sparring for Silva and he was at least 30lbs lighter than DC was in the cage. Risked his health to help save the ufc 200 main card.

    Got taken down by DC but completely neutralized DCs top game and avoided damage.

    Stood toe to toe in the pocket with a 15-0 HW with legit KO power. Managed to visibly hurt DC with a body kick in round 3. Really the only guy to visibly hurt DC beside Jon Jones.

    Meanwhile the longest reigning 3 time defending HW champion Stipe Miocic got KO’d inside one round. Makes Silva’s short notice performance that much more impressive. Imagine Prime Silva vs DC in a 5 round fight.. would’ve been amazing.

    Totally diffetent fights and strategy. If silva got hit off the break with same punch DC did he woulda been out too.
     
  4. A prime Silva most likely KOs DC..

    Reminder - Chris Weidman performed better against Silva than DC did.

    Does that mean Weidman is better than DC? hell no.

    Does this mean that Silva would beat Stipe? No

    "Only guy to visibly hurt DC besides Jon Jones"

    You mean apart from when Rumble sent his ass halfway across the ring with an overhand right that looked like someone throwing a brick at an old lady at close range

    Style make fights. DC doesn’t like rangy strikers.

    If my math is correct Bisping would have been the HW GOAT if he had moved up two divisions.

    Others have hurt DC but that kick was vicious.

    Sherdoggers will say that DC “took it easy on him” because the they claimed DC would knock him out in a round but they can’t admit to being wrong.

    GSP moves up and takes DC’s belt after he’s done at LW.

    So we are comparing losses now? We all know Anderson is one of the 4 greatest ever (unless u disqualify him for doping). if you wanna give him credit we should talk about his many wins, not that he lost to DC “more impressively” than another guy who lost to DC
