If Silva gets stunned there will be no recovery time. Having a good chin is no safeguard for having your equilibrium knocked senseless. Tito has a good chin but that didn't save him from Chucks succession of strikes.
I consider Vitor Silva's most dangerous opponent to date.
You consider Vitor more dangerous then the guy that was 1:30 away from taking a dominate decision over Silva?
I think Vitor can beat Silva for sure. But history has shown that wrestlers give Silva far tougher fights then strikers.
