Can anyone beat Anderson Silva?
« on: January 21, 2013, 11:44:06 AM »
For all of the UFC/MMA fans out there, who is most likely to beat Anderson Silva?  He is left without an upcoming opponent booked on his schedule.  The Brazilian middleweight is considered one of the best fighters on the planet right now.  Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold may be on the schedule, although he has been suffering from a shoulder injury.

I think if he ever did a catchweight with jon bones jones or George st.pierre either one would beat him.....if chael sonnen had so much success taking him down george is a lot smarter fighter and i think his wrestling is very underrated and on the same level as sonnen....and jon bones is just a freak in himself....

This is a complicated question hehe,

GSP:  He can out wrestle Anderson in a sailors second, however GSP has a glass jaw and his vision is horrible.  I see him wanting to do something fancy rather than his typical pin down and tire out the opponent strategy which in return will land him on his ass and match over.  The only chance like I said he has is to pull a Chael and keep him down, but I also dont see Anderson ever allowing anyone to pull that off again. 

Chael:  He had his chance, he beat him for 4.5 rounds and got stupid, and now he's gonna get spanked by Jon Jones.

Jones:  No chance what so ever.  He is our modern day GSP but hes not at that level quite yet and that means on his backside

Luke:  haha oh lord welcome to the UFC son, enjoy your short lived spot light cause Silva is gonna pop that bulb in an entertaining fashion.

At this moment I don't see anyone that can beat Silva but the closest is GSP.   This is why there isn't anyone on the schedule, they have this hope that the super fight between GSP and him will happen but I honestly don't see it happening, I think its great for the fans but bad for the UFC as a hole, someone will get embarassed and it will mildly taint there legacy and overall feel in the said division.

So yeah through this babble, no one at this moment rings a bell that can beat him, but I guess to end this anyone can catch the chin of the champ and finish him off but haha unlese inspector gadget comes in and does it he will enjoy the belt till he retires!!

  • Jonathan: De Leon should be primed to have a significant role this year. He has only pitched 5 innings this year, so far.
    May 27, 2016, 06:51:10 PM
  • Jonathan: They built him up to almost 120 last year.

    May 27, 2016, 06:53:44 PM
  • Jonathan: Send me Robles
    May 27, 2016, 07:03:52 PM
  • Scalious: Ha. I remember giving him a MLB contract
    May 27, 2016, 07:05:30 PM
  • Scalious: Mostly as a defensive move to keep him out of JPs hands
    May 27, 2016, 07:05:57 PM
  • Jonathan: Yeah, his value would be sky high if he had control and in minors. Not so much on a MLB deal.
    May 27, 2016, 07:10:46 PM
  • Jonathan: I tend to leave no money for latter on in year. I am in same boat this year. That is why I recently bid up a bunch of guys scoring points over waiting for j2 guys. I know teams have way too much cap for me to stand a chance lol
    May 27, 2016, 07:16:58 PM
  • cjbeckel: Jonathan, you sold me damaged goods, Cain couldn't even last two innings
    May 27, 2016, 11:30:13 PM
  • Jonathan: Coors field buddy. I told you that. Dont feel bad, I inherited Rockies to start with. No pitchers.
    May 27, 2016, 11:32:17 PM
  • Jonathan: I also inherited that farm way before it was good  :doh:
    May 27, 2016, 11:32:58 PM
  • Jonathan: Cain pulled his hammy.
    May 27, 2016, 11:33:51 PM
  • Jonathan: JP when you get a chance, Anthony Bass never got removed from my team.
    May 27, 2016, 11:42:36 PM
  • Jpsprague10: I'll take care of it now
    May 28, 2016, 12:14:26 AM
  • cjbeckel: The Rox pitching staff...that is a tough place to start from
    May 28, 2016, 12:55:55 AM
  • Scalious: Espically in a league where TOR arms are king
    May 28, 2016, 12:57:15 AM
  • Scalious: Those huge negatives for pitchers giving up HRs can be killer in week to week
    May 28, 2016, 12:58:25 AM
  • Jonathan: The best hope is that they get traded to better place. Like Pomeranz
    May 28, 2016, 01:08:12 AM
  • cjbeckel: Really the only kind of pitcher that can make it in Denver is a guy like Ubaldo Jimenez
    May 28, 2016, 01:12:25 AM
  • cjbeckel: He had great movement on his pitches, especially down in the strike zone.  It was really hard to hit homers on that guy
    May 28, 2016, 01:15:29 AM
  • Jonathan: Rams have worst abbreviation in pro sports. I though it was a college. LARM
    May 28, 2016, 09:06:37 AM
  • Jonathan: Pretty sure LA would of been fine. Last I checked, there is only one team there.
    May 28, 2016, 09:07:41 AM
  • themarksman13: Why not just LAR?
    May 28, 2016, 03:54:37 PM
  • cjbeckel: Four of the top five SP in ML scoring will be free agents this offseason (Kershaw, Arrieta, Sale and Strasburg)!!
    May 28, 2016, 03:59:47 PM
  • cjbeckel: Hey Scals are you the owner of Boston and looking for a GM or is it an open team?
    May 28, 2016, 08:48:19 PM
  • Scalious: If someone wants to buy it. They can!
    May 28, 2016, 09:24:22 PM
  • Scalious: Obivously not built to win this year. But stocked up the farm and tons of future cap to work with..
    May 28, 2016, 09:26:55 PM
  • cjbeckel: What is the payment status for :BOS: ?
    May 28, 2016, 10:46:24 PM
  • Scalious: Its Currently paid for this year at least
    May 28, 2016, 10:48:56 PM
  • cjbeckel: I could pay 2017 and onward for :BOS: if there is a good GM out there...
    May 28, 2016, 11:16:29 PM
  • cjbeckel: Is there a good GM out there??
    May 28, 2016, 11:16:50 PM
  • Scalious: lol.. I thought you were inplying you knew someone
    May 28, 2016, 11:21:28 PM
  • Scalious: I hired a guy..but he made 1-2 apperances so far
    May 28, 2016, 11:22:21 PM
  • Jonathan: He wanted Dansby, but wasn't willing to include any top prospects.  :P
    May 28, 2016, 11:26:20 PM
  • Jonathan: I want your best guy, buy so and so can't be in deal. Funny stuff.
    May 28, 2016, 11:27:04 PM
  • cjbeckel: Jonathan gave a similar response regarding Jimmie in the new Payment Tracker Thread.  Well let’s give him a chance.  I’m open to helping out if we need to have an owner for that team moving forward.  In the meantime, it looks like we have a full 30 team league then!
    May 28, 2016, 11:28:40 PM
  • cjbeckel: You cant deny that Dansby is a stud
    May 28, 2016, 11:30:27 PM
  • Jonathan: Yeah, but looking deeper.... he hasn't been on site since the 17th
    May 28, 2016, 11:30:48 PM
  • cjbeckel: Well, that was only 11 days ago, let's see what happens
    May 28, 2016, 11:35:23 PM
  • Jpsprague10: I would put the :COL: owner in the same boat. I've never looked for a replacement because CJ foots the bill. But he is/has always been a ghost.
    Yesterday at 12:27:02 AM
  • Jpsprague10: I typically start monitering activity around this time so we have an idea of how much may need recruited for.
    Yesterday at 12:32:02 AM
  • cjbeckel: Yes, Mike showed great promise and did a good job on cleaning up the roster.  I have been hopeful that he would return, but he has not logged in since Feb.  He put the ROX in a great position to move forward.  If he does not return this year I will consider him MIA, and do the work of rebuilding the ROX myself because :SEA: is far more marketable.

  • cjbeckel: Not everyone is as great as Calvin in :TEX:
    Yesterday at 12:38:28 AM
  • cjbeckel: I personally really liked Mike, I hope he returns this year.  When here he is a very good member of ML
