How would Antonio Silva do in the UFC?

How do you see "Bigfoot" Silva (14-2) doing in the octagon?

He is currently coming off of an impressive win, outboxing Andrei Arlovski, a fighter who used to be considered one of the top HW strikers in the world.

Most official rankings from various websites have him listed in their top 10 HWs.

So yeah, I'm just wondering how you guys would see him doing in the UFC.

Contender? Can? Gatekeeper?

 

I'd also like to see how you think he would fare against a fighter such as Kongo.

.. close fight w/ werdum' date=' thats why people are thinking fedor will destroy him .. silva looked slow in that match

 

 

werdum vs carwin ?[/quote']

Although impressive, I don't see him as top 5 in the UFC to be honest.

It's obviously debatable, but the current top 5 (Lesnar, Carwin, JDS, Cain, Mir) are pretty damn impressive. It's not a knock on Werdum's ability, but more how impressive they've looked.

 

Or maybe I've just bought the UFC hype :D

Who knows?

 

My opinion might change after his fight with Fedor.

Silva>Mir

 

Mir is soooo over-rated

Werdum > Mir?

Probably.

 

I don't think Silva is quite up to par with Mir yet though.

His most impressive wins? Arlovski and Rodriguez...both going to decision.

 

Well career wise yes Mir>Silva, i'm just thinking that stylistically Silva would just knock Mir out, even if it went to the ground silva has an under-rated jiu-jitsu game

Ahh fair point, stylistically he may be a problem.

Technically speaking though I'd have to say that Mir has the better technical boxing.

On the ground I would think it would be pretty even lol

Mir's jiu-jitsu is over-rated to be honest.

anyone with 9 TKO/KO's and out striking Arlovski has pretty damn good technical striking I'd say, I don't it's a fight I'd love to see

 

a lot of heavyweight matchups can be made in strike force besides Fedor vs Brock

 

Silva vs Mir

Overeem vs Carwin

Shane del Rosario vs JDS

Hell yeah, this Fedor/Brock talk is making me sick man lol

Not even the HW division, ALL the divisions would be awesome :D

I wish they would just co-promote already, I want to see how far Nick Diaz has progressed since leaving the UFC.

Agreed co-promotions would be awesome for the sport

 

Strikeforce and Bellator are already setting up Melendez vs Alvarez

Lol yeah I heard about that one.

GREAT match-up, the golden boy of Bellator vs. the SF LW champ?

How can you go wrong? :D

I'd still take Alvarez though lol

Melendez seemed unstoppable in that Aoki fight, I just don't know.

 

I mean the guy stopped 18/18 takedown attempts.
