I think Vitor can beat Silva for sure. But history has shown that wrestlers give Silva far tougher fights then strikers.
Not at all because unlike so many others I acknowledged that was clearly not the same A.Silva we have seen fight in the past. Clearly something was wrong with the man and little did we know he sustained a serious rib injury prior.
I wrote off Sonnen's efforts like people wrote off Mir Vs Nog/Griffin Vs Shogun.
The fact that Sonnen tested postive for performance enhancing drugs according to the CSAC didn't exactly help his case any for being a serious threat to Silva.
The dude cheats before the fight, during the fight and still can't get the job done in 5 rounds against a wounded opponent. I also find his comments mocking Lance Armstrong's use of PEDS to be extremely hilarious but not without a sprinkle of irony.
