Default Matt Hughes vs Anderson @ 185?

Who do you think would win?

personally I can see Matt out-wrestling Silva for the decision win or maybe even getting some brutal GNP in and ending the fight with a slick sub.

On paper I think it's a bad match for Matt however he has always maintained that he see's some areas he can exploit in Anderson's game. I would have no reason to doubt that so it would no doubt be a close match.

If Matt could get him to the ground I think it would be a very good possibility. But AS has some naaasssty striking...so I don't know. Yet, Travis Lutter took AS down so I believe Matt could as well.

I'd rather see GSP be defeated by AS than Matt, plus I think DW has talked about that as a possible fight down the road.

I'd love to see good V evil. Silva is Satan as far as I'm concerned

I would like to see Matt win however I think this is a bad match up for him. If he can get the take down he could win. If not I think Anderson might put him to sleep like everyone else.

matt has shown trouble with bigger guys in his last two losses and silva is even much bigger than them... walks around at 225, is very tall and has a huge reach. as a hughes fan i don't want to see this fight. weight classes are made for a reason and every champ has their own weight class. anderson is just such a huge MW that he can perform at LHW too, he is a rare instance of a fighter who is stuck in the middle and can do both. with that said it's up to matt and i will respect his decision if he decides to fight anderson. i have the upmost respect for fighters who like to challenge themselves and move up in weight classes

Is is time to bring in Mark? Hasn't Matt said Mark was the one people fear? I'm not scared I'd roll with him

if ANYONE can, it would be Matt. Remember:

"Ones courage can overcome the greatest of obstacles if one accepts Jesus and the Lord as thy saviour " Matthew 44:20
