He has took a big shot from Hendo in the first round and walked right through it. Even shogun isn't putting Silva to sleep. I don't see how Shogun wins, but I would love to see him try.
Normally I agree with your posts but I don't see any evidence to say that Anderson's TDD has improved any. Okami only attempted one TD and it was pretty half hearted at best.

Look at it guys, he does not duck tough fights--after seeing tht list you are crazy to think he ducks anyone.
Now I will be the first to say Ed fuckin Soaresducks and talks shit becayse he does not want his cash cow to get beat. BUT Anderson, IMO, is not scared to fight anyone.
The only thing you can blame on Anderson is the fact that he has not fired Ed yet.
No... just no. Pointing out who Anderson has actually fought doesn't show the fighters he was avoiding. Hendo/Marquardt were clearly 1-2 and Anderson wouldn't go anywhere near either of them. He had to be talked into the Sonnen 2 fight. He's ducking Weidman now. How many breaks has he taken recently? How many times has he opted to waste his one fight a year on a LHW?
You can blame Soares all you want but he is Anderson's mouthpiece. He represents Anderson and unless Anderson comes out and refutes Soares' statements you can take those at face value as coming from Anderson. While I don't believe Anderson is truly scared of anybody he certainly acts like a coward a lot.
