    Huge step up for St. Preux. Not a bad fight on paper but I expect Silva's size to be too much for St. Preux.

    I don't think Silva has much, if any, size advantage over St. Preux. St. Preux is 6'3" and has a 79 inch reach, compared to T.Silva who is 6'2" and has 75 inch reach. I never really thought of T.Silva as a "big" LHW, maybe above average at best, but that's just my opinion.

    I do see T.Silva winning by decision, I think St.Preux is still just to raw and Silva's experience should help him get the win. I would really love to Ovince St. Preux take this one though, he is an exciting fighter with a lot of potential. Earned me as a fan while fighting his way to the UFC.

    "I leave this as a declaration of intent, so no one will get confused. 1: Si vis pacum para bellum. Latin. If you want peace, prepare for war. 2: Frank Castle is dead. He died with his family. 3: In certain extreme situations, the law is inadequate. In order to shame its inadequacies, it is necessary to act outside the law. To pursue natural justice. This isn't vengeance. Revenge is not a valid motive, it's an emotional response. No, not vengeance. Punishment "

    I'm gonna go ahead and say he's been spending too much time at the Blackzilian buffet table with teammate Rumble Johnson.
