Anderson Silva looks nearly unbeatable

Posted on

Watching highlights of Silva fight, I can see how bewildered his opponents become once they realize the capabilities of their opponent. He has very long limbs, and great footwork which he uses to control the distance at all times. Too close, expect a barrage of elbows and knees, then a push off and a high left kick for a finish. He demolished a great fighter, Rich Franklin twice. Franklin’s specialty is his standup striking, but he had nothing to offer against Silva’s Muy Thai clinch.

Watch as his opponents become confused, then unconscious.

    He’s a very scary man and I agree with your assessment of him.

    I think he got beat in a disappointing way his last fight. I know that means nothing and everyone has a bad day. He is awesome though. Him and Georges St-Pierre will be fighting soon from the sound of it. It should be a good fight. They are probably the two best pound for pound in the UFC right now. Of course if Fedor would fight Lesnar I would pay for that.

    Did he get beat? I dont think he did. If I remember, everyone, including Dana White was disappointed in him, because his opponent laid on the ground the whole fight, hoping that Silva would go to the ground with him. He didn’t but he still won.

    Sorry, but if you’re a ground fighter and you’re opponent isn’t, it’s your job to get him to the ground, not his job to comply with your wishes.

    Yeah, he’s won 10 fights in a row. He fights Forrest Griffin next. Should be awesome.

    Oh, that is right. lol, I am sorry. I remembered being upset with Dana Whjite becuse it wasn’t ‘spectacular’ enough. That is bordering on orchestrating fights in an illegal way.

    Forrest Griffin may be in for a whoopin’. That guy can take one though.

    The bear is coming! Raaaaaaaawr!

    Fedor is Russia. I think he is like you Magus but with a Mesomorph body type.

    Oh, I think they did a war game with the F-22 against F-15s. I think one F-22 took out like 10 F-15s or something silly like that. I would have to see the proof of the SU-37 taking out the F-22 before I would believe it, as much as I like the Russian fighter.

    I agree. Russian stuff is usually hyped. Except for Fedor of course.

    For any doubters.

    His only weakness seems to be size at 6 foot and 231. The only problem I see with the sport is letting in roid whores like Leznar and Lashley. I think Fedor can beat them but physically it is such an uphill battle.

    Henderson and Silva will be next as a rematch from UFC 82. Good luck Henderson.

    The winner of the Carwin-Valasquez fight should be fighting Leznar even though Terry White is talking Fedor. Fedor will only fight on his pronoters terms so we will see.

    Fedor is unreal. Anderson Silva is ranked along with Fedor as the number one fighter in the world. Of course, they are vastly different sized fighters and have different styles, but I do appreciate Silva.

    I’ll believe the Fedor/ Lesnar fight when I see it. I’d like to know what Lesnar has really done to earn the right to fight Fedor; I guess he is the heavy-weight champion in the UFC…

    Dan Henderson is fighting Anderson Silva? Good fight. Henderson is very tough, an olympic wrestler, never gets knocked out, and has power to spare in his right hand. I was at the pub watching his fight against Rich Franklin, though, and Franklin got robbed on the decision. It was close, but I think Franklin won. And Silva absolutely annihilated Franklin–TWICE. Their style combo is bad for Franklin. He doesn’t do well in the clinch and in my opinion his one weakness is his ground and pound. When he has an opponent weakened or stunned, he doesn’t take them down and then strike, he allows them to stay standing and he ends up taking punishment. That;s the great thing about dumping someone and then striking; it’s tough for them to hit with authority from their backs.

    Constant distance adjustments. Only tons and tons of practice could give him that.

    Wow, he’s good!
