This is a very interesting matchup for me and id love to see it, I think Thiago has more speed and better bjj, but I believe Rampage has better wrestling and more power with maybe a better chin...both gas tanks seem about the same so who do you guys think takes this? No certain winner comes to mind for me.

I think Thiago takes it but it would be a lot of fun to watch. As far as power goes I actually think Thiago has at equal power to Rampage, maybe more. Rampage could not put Jardine away and Thiago did it with relative ease. Thiago also did a lot better against Evans then Rampage did. Thiago outstruck Evans 3-1, whereas Rampage was outstruck by by nearly the same 3-1 margin. I think speed would be the difference and Thiago wins a barn bunrner of a brawl.

I think it depends on what Rampage would show up. The one of late Rampage is in serous trouble.

This fight would be awesome - I take Silva, though if Rampage mixed it up a bit for once and actually using his wrestling he could win

Rampage does everything Thiago Silva does slightly better and has a huge power advantage.

How does Rampage have a huge power advantage? In his last 7 wins he has won three by KO. In Thiago Silva's last 7 wins he has won 7 by KO or TKO. Actually out of Thiago's 14 wins he has only gone the distance once and that was four years ago. Rampage could not KO Jardine, Thiago did it without even breaking a sweat. Does Rampage have a lot of power, yea he does. But Thiago has at least equal power maybe even a slight advantage.

You can't compare it like that, Rampage KO'ed better fighters then Silva did I will give him credits for Jardine lol... Rampage have power advantage no doubts...

So you do not think Thiago could KO Wandy, Liddell or Eastman? How about Randleman or Yokoi? I am pretty sure Thiago could KO just about anyone Rampage has KOed.

They have only faced two similar fighters, Jardine and Evans. Thiago did a lot better against both of them. Heck Thiago had a pretty bad back injury and still almost pulled out the win against Evans (Fightmetric scored the fight a draw). I am not saying Rampage does not have power, but its not like he has so much more power then Thiago. Thiago has ended 92% of his wins by KO so come on the guy has pretty good power in his own right. Rampage on the other hand has won 66% of his bouts by KO. So there is not some huge power advantage for Rampage.

Thiago is just better at this stage in his career then Rampage. If they fought Thiago would show it too. I hope this fight happens because it would be a great stand-up war between two guys with amazing power.

If i were to put money on it id take thiago just to many upsides to his game, the chin to me is kinda big...The shot machida put thiago out with was meh i loved it but mehhhh,if rampage connects with thiago's chin i think its lights out and with both theese guys being bangers i see it very likly

I think that if this bout were to go down in the "not too distant future", Thiago Silva takes this fight on the sole basis of his ferocity, committment and present-day skillset, for I think he just throws too much 'Page's way and I'm not too sure Rampage could handle it at the moment....HOWEVER, if this fight were to occur as the third or so fight after Rampage has returned and appeared in passionate and invested form, it's an entirely different story.

Rampage is more explosive, Better chin and better hands. Those are basically three factors that matter ALOT due to the likeliness of it being primarily a standup war. I say that because Rampage probably has as good or better of wrestling meaning neither should have a clear advantage in takedowns.

I would give the edge to 'page in 1 punch stopping power. I mean, the man did end chuck's life, essentially. However, I think Thiago does a LOT more damage with his fists. I cant remember the last time 'page left someone lookin like brandon vera looked after silva was done with him.

EDIT: as for the comment about the pride era rampage winning with ease, I think we all remember what happened to pride-era 'page when he fought a certain Chute Boxe Academy fighter.. heh

Page takes this fight 9/10 times. He has better wrestling, better striking technique, better power and a much better chin.

Horrible matchup for Silva and I can't wait to see him get KTFO.

Rampage due to better standup.
