I honestly dont think there is a fighter that can beat him at his weight...........and i mean both of them(185 and 205).
why? you ask..........you've seen him fight, right?......lol

On any given sunday.........I mean its possible he can lose, but 2 out of 3, i pick silva........
He is one bad mofo.

Can Silva be beaten? Of course anyone can, however Cote is not the guy to do it. He has a punchers chance, and with Silva's movement, I dont see it happening. 1st round ko a la his fight with Leben for Silva

I think Cote has more than a puncher's chance though since he's a good boxer. Maybe...+5% chance hahaha so from 0 it became 5% lol

no way will cote be the one to end the streak.... unless by freak accident, but still not likely in my eyes.
I DONT think however that Silva will be able to stomp through 205 the same as he has through mid weight. too many much more powerful and equally dynamic fighters as he.... wouldnt mind seeing him prove me wrong though, just dont know if he'll stick around long enough to even clench both titles.... again would love to see other wise though.

Yes, 205 with guys like Machida, no cakewalk for the spider. Except he'd use some innovative body enhancement substances, but those would get him banned.

at 185 people onyl have a punchers chance, at 205 there are some legit guys who could beat him. I think Wandy, Machida (even though they wont fight), a healthy Shogun, and even Forrest could be trouble.
Dont kill me about the Forrest comment, as I think Forrest is so huge for 205, that the weight disparity might make things difficult for Spider

I agree, every time I see him I think he has improved. I am interested to see what he will bring to the Rashad fight. I do think he retains there though

I don't even really think Cote has a puncher's chance. Anderson has an amazing chin, and one punch won't do it IMO. Henderson and Franklin both caught him on the button wiht their power hand, and it did nothing. Cote wins this fight 1 time out of 100.
There are definitely some legit threats to Silva at 205, but Wandy is not one of them. Bad matchup for Wand.

cant wait to see Silva fight again.. maybe I'll run into him again at dinner like at UFC 77..
Disregard the gay "2 thumbs up" pose.. I was shocked to run into both of them at Cheesecake Factory at dinner, no one really knew who they were, so it was nice to get to talk with both of them.

I believe there is a good chance that Cote can beat Silva, mainly due to his technical boxing, power, gameplan, mental confidence and his chin. I doubt cote will come in without a game plan (like leben) and just run into silva, nor get sloppy/comfortable and get dazed/subbed like Hendo.
I think it will be a competitive fight more than most believe, and Cote could catch Silva with a power shot and get the TKO.
While i admit this is a far chance, the MMA scene is ripe for another serious upset (not a bs decision upset like ufc 86).

Ukmmm... lets see... 185 very elite. 205 still very elite. To not give him Silva respect is like robdog not giving me respect. Its just a bad idea Seriously though Rob just doesnt like Silve. I dont get it....Silva is a smart fast strong fighter. Cote should be in for it but for some reason I smell upset.
