The way I see it, however, is that Silva may have better ground defense than Chuck, but Chuck is still being more impressive because he's not even letting his opponents take him to the ground. And, personally, I think it's impressive how Chuck can just stand up with a guy strapped on his back even though he was on the bottom.
no no! im not doing that at all and I dont think its fair either cuz Chuck has beaten everyone thats been put in front of him.. but yet no one that is being put in front of him really stands a chance because they dont match up well for him. Silva has the luxury of fighting in a deeper division, hes seeing better fighters so ya it isnt fair in that regard but really I believe Chuck can go to Pride if he wants to and fight there and should do so.
