He has good MT with power in his hands, kicks... I just dont see how people see it translating well against Anderson. Anderson picks him apart.
We may even see Anderson bring back his leg kicks... He was known for being one of the best leg kickers in the game... but seemed to go away from them, probably based on not wanting to get taken down... or wanting to finish the fight early, rather than looking to accumulate damage.
Aldo reminds me of earlier Anderson with the leg kicks.
You can blame Soares all you want but he is Anderson's mouthpiece. He represents Anderson and unless Anderson comes out and refutes Soares' statements you can take those at face value as coming from Anderson. While I don't believe Anderson is truly scared of anybody he certainly acts like a coward a lot.
Second did Anderson not finish both Hendo and Marquardt? They way I remeber it he beat both and finished them.
Breaks? did he not just fight on short notice to save a card? A ominate champ gets perls..OR DO YOU THINK EVERYONE SHOULD FIGHT 5 TIMES A YEAR. Plus like I said earlier he is 38 YEARS OLD
Now for Soares, If I am not mistakin he represents almost every Blackhouse fighter. I am not really sure the deal between Anderson and Ed, but ED is always the one talking not Anderson.
Silva is a good fighter but I don't see him having the same success at lhw like he has at mw. Too many great wrestlers at lhw. As for Shogun and Silva, if he came in with a plan sort of like the Machida fights, it'd be a lot closer than ppl think imho. (Im referring to him doing his whole career at lhw, not a run at it now) He couldve definitely make a run at the title tho.
Anderson at LHW is my mma dream
Rashad, Shogun, Goose, Glover, Hendo with (more) cardio, and Jones... Lots of really fun fights. Jones being the only one I could see him potentially losing to, but fun fights nonetheless.
How many times did pillowfists Sonnen drop him? Don't tell me THAT was the rib injury.Quote:
Also, Silva's chin was criminally underated for a very long time. He has took a big shot from Hendo in the first round and walked right through it. Even shogun isn't putting Silva to sleep
