First off let me say that i am one of the biggest Anderson Silva
fans there are. Anderson is by far the best fighter there is in MMA today.
Having said that let me say this. 1 fighter that would WITHOUT A DOUBT have the ability to KO Anderson striking is Melvin Manhoef
. Before you flame me, hear me out.
Anderson has never in the UFC worried about any of his opponents striking. His gameplan for the most part has been avoid the takedown and keep it standing. Now, Melvin Manhoef has devastating and i mean DEVASTATING striking and knockout power. Yes he did have a slip up with Robbie Lawler
but that was a flash KO and Melvin would destroy him 9 times out of 10.
ALSO, we all know that Melvin's all-around mma game is mediocre at best but as a pure striker he is a fucking monster!! As a fan of MMA i would LOVE to see this fight even though it really might not make that much sense for Anderson.
The real question is Maniacs is .... Would Anderson try to take Melvin down? and if he didnt who would get the better of the exchanges? Who would win? We know that whoever wins it will be by KO! This is a DREAM
FIGHT for fans who love knockouts. I would love to see this fight. Thoughts fellow maniacs??
