There is all this talk about Silva being physically gifted even with all the losses recently. Isn't it possible that the guy just has zero fight IQ and just plans for a 1 round fight and this exaggerates his physical abilities. E.g Someone sprinting as fast as possible in the first 200m of an 800m race and giving the perception that he's faster than anyone else. When dialed back to actually complete the race, this runner would show that he isn't really faster than anyone else. Just someone who's dumb. If Silva were to remove his half a round blitz and plan for a 15-25 minute fight, we might just see a regular, perhaps below average physical abilities. Johnny Hendricks isn't known for Cardio, but his pace he put on against Condit in their fight was a similarly high pace as Silva's and he maintained that for the most part for 15minutes. Similarly, GSP, particularly during his prime was able to maintain a crazy pace for 25 minute. The point is, these guys can match silvas physical abilities for entire fights and I would consider these guys gifted athletes. Someone like Silva I think looks more physically talented than he is because he blows his energy in a round. If GSP and Johnny Hendricks did that, they would look like super heroes when they do it. Silva's can take out cans using such a method, but people that can handle that pace because they fight at a high level of competition and are used to it, are likely to survive the blitz and take him out.
