Indeed that is you... Yes we know Tito and Vitor beat him "BACK IN THE DAY", he has since become a world class fighter and the #1 ranked LHW in the world, make no mistake about it. The proof is in his PRIDE record, the fact that he went the distance with Cro Cop and earned a draw and he went the distance with Hunt and was robbed of the decision.
He has NEVER been KO'ed and as stated above has fought 2 of the best strikers in the world and arguably the #1 striker in the world of MMA (should be hands down as there really isn't a better striker than Cro Cop) so you can't base your assumption on his losses from back in UFC, those were a very long time ago, you must measure greatness in what he has since done and that is go undefeated in his weight class in PRIDE for 5 years, Chuck's accomplishments I'm sorry to tell you, hail in comparison.
Chuck would have a punchers chance at best, Silva is a cardio machine that can't be KO'ed, 5 x 5 minute rounds would equate to Chuck gassing in the 2nd-3rd round as there is just no way he would be able to keep pace with Silva, sorry man but it's true.
