    Default Josh Gross: Anderson Silva could win 3/10 fights against Fedor

    Jacob Schlottke---Gone too soon, and the world is a little less bright because of it. RIP, brother.

    I think he's too skinny and would be taken down right away. If Nog can't submit Fedor after being in the ring with him for something like 40 minutes, I don't think Anderson can either and Fedor has nasty GNP with little fear of being caught in a submission while doing it

    If you read what he wrote, he is just saying it could be a good fight with a chance of Spider winning. I disagree with him, but in the tone he presents it, he does not seem unreasonable.

    Anyone come up with someone better for spot #5 on his list?

    From best chance of defeating the Russian to the worst, my top five toughest challengers (though, admittedly, No. 5 might be a stretch):

    1. Josh Barnett
    2. Andrei Arlovski
    3. Randy Couture
    4. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
    5. Anderson Silva

    I think Silva beats him 0 out of 10 times and that's not a knock on Silva. I can't believe this talk has started b/c Silva convincingly beat Irvin.

    Werdum, Aleks, Rampage, Kharitonov, Gonzaga, Velasquez, Carwin, Sylvia...any of those guys would have a better chance than Silva.
    I heart Jazzy B. White.

    Gotta agree with Dingo for the most part. Maybe 1 in 10 times Spider lands a KO blow, but Fedor is too big, too strong and too good to lose 3 out of 10 to a 185er (even though it is Spider.) Anderson couldn't stop the TDs, and couldn't stop the GnP that would follow, and as has already been pointed out, Nog couldn't sub Fedor, so I see no reason to think the smaller Silva would.

    Also as Dingo implied, although Anderson went up a weight, he met someone unranked at that weight. If he did this to Chuck Liddell or Rampage, it would be different. He hasn't proven he can beat the best at 205 and its hard to imagine him beating the beat Heavyweights.

    then hed be leaner and tougher. Fedor has some pudge on him, he'd have to cut back on the borscht and vodka for a bit, but he could do it.
