    Hey,

    Anderson Silva is 40 years old, just had his leg broken badly, on a 2 fight loss and hes coming back to the UFC. ok fair enough.

    But why do so many on here think Silva even has a chance? I just realized now that he has no chance what so ever given Diaz is at least a competent fighter. I dont see how hes ever going to use leg kicks effectively again after suffering that injury for a start.........

    It's a concern, but you can't write off the longest reigning UFC champion of all time so easily.

    Couture was nearly 45 the last time he won HW gold.

    Diaz is also coming up from a lower weight class so he'll most likely be at a decent strength disadvantage.

    More to the point Silva will be scared as hell throwing kicks.

    He has a titanium shin now. He can just kick a hole through Diaz wherever he wants.

    Can't believe you have lasted this long without being banned

    Come to think of it I'm surprised you are capable of operating a computer

    That's funny, because Hendo has been 50 for just about 2.

    I think you're one of those people that should watch MMA quietly and not voice your opinion on things

    The thing that makes this fight interesting is that it you really have no idea wtf is going to happen. Silva is past his prime and Diaz is.....well, Diaz, so its just a weird intriguing match up. There should be zero title implications on this one btw
