But what i am saying is that penn against anderson is not a good match bj would get ko'd i dont care how good his chin is with the strikeing and the knees that anderson throws it would be to much for him and would get ko'ed. Anderson would tie him up knee his ribs to shit then just knocked him out. And believe me anderson will be beat just not by bj.
Come on people...As the Wolf from Pulp Fiction once said, "lets not suck on each others' dicks just yet". Silva had two fights under his belt in UFC and he has been beaten before. Afterall, he did lose his last two fights in Pride.
BJ is a much smarter fighter than Franklin and I've never seen anyone get caught on a clinch like Franklin did. BJ would not get caught on a clinch and there is more to BJ's fighting than striking. If we can see Silva is the better striker I am sure BJ will see it too and he has the option of taking the guy to the ground. On the ground, I would give the edge to BJ.
Silva is not invincible and this fight will be 50/50 as are most fights.
