    How is posting an article for people who might not have seen it on a free public forum a "troll" act?

    Did I state an opinion about the article?

    No.

    I just said it was an interesting read.

    I read it and that is why I want to see Machida against Silva!!!!!! Machida supposedly gives Silva trouble because they are both counter strikers, the ONLY different is that Machida does not "roll" with the punches like Silva does. But they're BFF so whatever! Weidman gonna own him now anyways!

    There is only one king and his name is Kevin Casey.

    Anderson is more like a jester.

    Yeah Lyoto counter game is better than silvas so I'd believe it.
    Lyoto vs teixeira sparring is pretty crazy too.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Our Fedor in heaven, hallowed be your sambo, your combos come. Your Kimora be done on the street, as it is in the ring. Give us today our daily sparring, and forgive us the overtraining we have done as we forgive those who knock us out. Subject us not to the trial but deliver us from Werdum. Remember that Fedor got triangled for your sins...

    - Fedor - Roy Nelson - Lyoto Machida - Glover Texeira - Chael Sonnen - Nick Diaz - Carlos Condit -
    - Tarec Saffiedine - Nate Diaz - Gilbert Melendez - Frankie Edgar - Anthony Pettis - Ricardo Lamas -


    Train by day, piss-off Shannon & Pack by night! All day!

    Nah he's right. It's good I agree but it's not as good as Silvas.

    Silva uses mind tricks to attack.
    His counter its average. He gets hit but rocks his opponents because of his southpaw stance.
    There's a reason why Andy says Lyoto gets the best of him.
    Also, if Andy's counter IS better than Lyotos, why don't we see a lot of knee counters?
    If we were to see Lyoto vs Andy in the UFC, I'd put money on Lyoto.

    Mind tricks?

    Like telekinesis?

    :D

    I'm only stirring you up.

    Machida's knee counters to stop clinching/take downs are pretty damn awesome. Remember the couture fight?

    If he did lose there would probably be a lot of sig changing and profile editing

    and the forum would need a "butthurt flag" option installed.

    Nonsense article,Silva has not been well tested and has not faced it all.He might have faced certain types of fighters but has never faced half the skill sets because he uses speed and a counter style to keep from engaging.
    Teh article mentioned guard pullers ...lol,what so a guy goes into guard Silva is going to jump on him?We saw the Maia fight Silva ran the entire fight,he wanted no part of any guard or grappling system.We also saw how he handles wrestling and he doesn't,he only survived a loss to a one dimensional Sonnen because Sonnen was gassed because Sonnen did all the work.His answer the second time around was to flat out RUn lol and again survived because Sonnen messed up with his spinning flop fist.

    What else has Silva fought ,strikers?,Who a one punch KO guy Hendo who is too slow and has no striking outside of a haymaker?Striking is very limited in the UFC,not many good actual strikers but many good counter strikers.Oh ya need i remind people Hendo got owned by Shield's,i don't hear anyone giving Shield's a chance versus Silva.So ya Silva has had very little challenge,he has yet to be well tested,Weidman is imo his FIRST real title defense.
    If Silva beats Weidman ,fine so be it no problem,he would have finally proved himself versus at least a decent wrestler type with some thing more than just a TD,even still Weidman's striking is below average,so it still allows Silva to only be worried about one aspect of the fight,TD's.
    Gina Miesha Kyra ...yes please.
