I think that everyone picking Silva to win it all are hoping for a Liddell match-up that's not going to happen. Wanderlei might beat CRO COP but he couldn't beat Barnett and certainly can not beat Minotauro. My pick for the tournament is and always has been Antonio Rodrigo "MINOTAURO" Nogueira.
It is just an ackowledgement that, with most these fighters, the skill level is so close that on any given day, one could beat the sheeeOT out of the other. Dont take it personally.
