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!!

  • Jdwalter21: If a player is right at 50 games does that mean he ids no longer eligible for a spec contract?
    Today at 12:54:20 AM
  • Brent: what league?
    Today at 12:55:29 AM
  • Jdwalter21: SD
    Today at 12:55:54 AM

    Today at 12:55:58 AM
  • Jdwalter21: lol
    Today at 12:56:16 AM
  • kylerap: I think the rule is less than 50 (or my understanding of the rule)
    Today at 12:56:41 AM
  • Jdwalter21: What's the chances of a player being right at 50 though
    Today at 12:56:54 AM
  • Jdwalter21: that's the way I'm understanding it. I just rather be wrong
    Today at 12:57:54 AM
  • Brent: If he is right at 50 then he qualifies as a MiLB player, once he goes over 51 then he is not a MiLB player.
    Today at 12:57:59 AM
  • kylerap: I'm sure Corey will have something to say on it based on who the player plays for
    Today at 01:00:16 AM

    Today at 01:00:17 AM

    Today at 01:00:42 AM
  • kylerap: I'm too low on money right now. hah
    Today at 01:01:46 AM
  • Brent: He's a MiLB for sure, he only has 134 ABs.
    Today at 01:05:12 AM
  • Jdwalter21: my impulse bid on miley cost me. I'm going it doesn't bite me in the a$$
    Today at 01:05:53 AM
  • Jdwalter21: in SD at bats only matter for minor league eligibility. 50 games is the position player threshold for spec contracts. either way he most likely will be a Philly this upcoming season
    Today at 01:08:38 AM
  • Brent: SD is about the only league wher I have stupid $ available.
    Today at 01:09:13 AM
  • kylerap: have to hope Miley pitches like McCarthy did when he got out of Arizona

    Today at 01:09:53 AM
  • kylerap: Brent, any thoughts about the deal we were discussing?
    Today at 01:09:59 AM
  • kylerap: I did, will write back now..
    Today at 01:10:14 AM
  • Brent: Kyle, I'm always thinking about it.  Then I think about the one that got away.
    Today at 01:10:40 AM
  • Brent: JD, I was wrong.  I wish all the minor league rules within a league were in the same location.  You have to check 3 different threads to see if a guy qualifies to be a MiLB for bidding purposes.
