He's called the best pound for pound for a reason.

Let's ask it another way...Who has knocked men out when hitting them in the back of the head, lol.

Silva >>>>>>>>>>>>>Henderson>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Kimbo

Kimbo is way stronger then Anderson. Anderson though is on a different level when it comes to skill. I say if Anderson could survive till Kimo gasses then he pick him apart other wise i think Kimbo could take the fight but only because he is so much bigger not because he is a better fighter

is that a serious question?
silva would destroy him he could just pick him apart with his striking and when kimbo "tries" to overpower him anderson will unleash on him in the clinch.. and if it goes to the ground well.. we all know how well thats gona go for superstar kimbo...

That wouldnt even be a contest. Anderson is waaay to skilled for Kimbo. With Anderson's kicks...a shot to the head would send Kimbo to the mat.

i could see Anderson picking apart Kimo... then Kimbo closing the distance and Silva working the Muay thai Palm behind Kimbo head... then while Anderson is attempting to give Kimbo the knees Kimbo unleashes with some hooks putting Anderson face down on the mat... Kimbo Via KO

wtf?? This has got to be the most ridiculous, random "fantasy matchup" on this fuckin forum. First, they are in two different weight classes. Second, Kimbo is just an up and coming street thug. He shouldn't even be in the same sentence as the super calculating veteran killing machine that is Anderson Silva. Anderson is designed for pure MMA destruction.

I'd give it to Silva in the Second round by TKO.

I think Kimbo's got a good solid jaw, and has the power to knock out Silva. His problem is that he can only really unleash that power on a stationary target. Anderson Silva is NOT a stationary target, and will never BE a stationary target.

Silva has incredibly powerful, but more importently, precise striking. Kimbo can hit a man, but Silva is capable of hitting a man who's moving his head. If it came to just stand up Silva would win pretty much hands down.

However, Kimbo's camp isn't full of morons. They'll definately be looking for a GnP victory over Silva. Silva hasn't fought a large number of GnPers, and he CERTIANLY hasn't fought someone as large and strong as Kimbo. I'd be looking for Kimbo's camp to brush up on his wrestling, and do some more intensive BJJ training (To avoid, not apply.) With the strategy to get Silva up against the cage, and slam him to the ground and work the GnP from there relying on Kimbos size advantage to win him the match.

The Problem with that strategy is that Silva's specialty is Mui Thai, so no matter what Kimbo does to get Silva to the ground he's going to eat a few knees and elbows doing it. And you're talking about some of the most precise knees and elbows in the sport. And let's not forget, getting Silva to the ground isn't a guarenteed win either. Silva's a black belt in JJ (BJJ?) and Kimbo will definately leave an arm dangling for Silva to break, or what's more likely is that Silva will use his incredibly long legs to apply a triangle.

At the end of the day Silva has too many tools to defeat Kimbo. His striking is technically better, his conditioning is better, his speed is better, his submissions are better. Kimbos only advantage in the fight would be his size and raw strength, and Silva is simply too good to let Kimbo fall back on those things.

I LIKE Kimbo, and I look forward to seeing him in MMA, but the dude will need three more years of training before even thinking of fighting a guy like Silva and winning.
