He certainly has power in his knee strikes. I though Franklin's ribs were going to cave in

hes koed curtis stout and jorge riviera with his hands so he must have a reasonable amount of power in those hands of his

I'd love to see him fight Lindland and Marquardt.

silvas striking is pretty percise. timed hits, great combos, and the most crucial element of his game, he spontaniousness. U dont know whats coming and if it goes to the ground hes a black belt in BJJ. So I dont see many guys that can threaten him right now. The way that Conan got him in Pride was amazing, one of the most amazing subs iv ever seen.

All I have to say is that I would not want to be caught in his clinch. With that being said I would not want to be caught with his hands either.

Not to cross train cripples the martial arts, without it you can become a mechanic, but never an artist.

If Swick gets knocked out or subbed by him he's the man. Looked to me like Franklin was totally not prepared for this fight.
BY the way these "resurrected" fighters from the Spike show getting shots at the titles... ridiculous! What's his name... Lutter? That's like Fedor vs Coleman ha ha or Serra vs GSP... Give me a break.

One thing i can say about Silva is that he is a true professional
