Anderson Silva is looking invincible these days. He is quickly moving up the P4P list, and is #1 on a lot of the MMA expert's lists right now. But lets suppose Hendo dropped down to 185 again. Who do you think takes this one.
I'm going with Henderson. I think Silva is a better overall fighter (certainly more exciting), but Dan is taylored made to beat him. Control wrestlers are what is going to give Anderson the most trouble, as he has a great ground game but not amazing TD defense. We've seen it before against Chonan, Lutter, Newton and so on (although it does look to be getting better)
Hendo also has an invincible jaw. I think Dan is more likely to get a KO of Silva than the other way around. I do think Anderson would win the stand up war, just not get a KO.
Submissions have been a problem for Hendo, but he has been training harder and has better sub defense than before. I think this is the most likely way for Silva to win.
Tell me what you think.
