The level of submission fighting is stronger. And with the initial ten minute first round the conditioning is higher. Liddell definetly has a punchers chance of winning but overall Silva is leaps and bounds better than Liddell, HANDS DOWN! Keep in mind i am a Liddell fan but this is like people saying Gatti was gonna knock out Mayweather Jr. (we all know what happened to Gatti)
PRIDE IS DEEPER IN THE HEAVYWHIEGHTS AND THATS IT.... THE WW DIVISION IN UFC BLOWS OUT PRIDE AND LHW AND MW ARE JUST ABOUT EVEN... AND HOW CAN ANYONE SAY SILVA IS BETTER THAT LIDDEL BY LEAPS AND BOUNDS THATS FUCKIN RETARDED! THEY BOTH HAVE AMAZING STAND UP... IF SILVA GETS INSIDE CHUCK AND CLECHES AND THROWS CLOSE LOOPING RIGHTS AND LEFTS THATS HIS WORLD! BUT CHUCK CAN KEEP HIM BACK WITH THOSE LONG COUNTER PUNCHING LEFTS AND THAT FUCKIN KILLER RIGHT HAND! CHUCK ALSO HAS KICKS! SILVA HAS KNEES! AND I HEAR PEOPLE SAYING IF IT GOES TO THE GROUND CHUCKS IN TROUBLE... BULL SHIT WAT MOST PEOPLE DONT KNOW IS THAT CHUCK IS A PURPLE BELT IN BJJ... HE'L DO JUST FINE ON THE GROUND! HE ALSO DID WRESTLING FOR CAL POLY HES ACTUALLY PRETTY GOOD ON THE GROUND BUT JUST DOESNT REALLY USE IT!! THIS IS THE FIGHT OF THE CENTURY AND MOST PEOPLE THINK SILVA HAS THIS FIGHT WON ALREADY BUT REALLY ITS TO CLOSE TO LEAN FOR EITHER FIGHTER!!! WELL SEE IN NOVEMBER!!!
