The winners simply defend their games perhaps not win them, Anderson Silva proves my stage, at middleweight he has damaged everybody else club Thietes Lietes who just needed a ground ju jitsu fight. When he measures as much as light heavyweight he puts on a banger display and directs shockwaves through the mild heavyweight division!
Champions like GSP and BJ Penn previously have gone following their challenger to player and win, this in my opinion allows the challenger chance to turn safety into assault and enables the challenger a much better opportunity at beating the champion.
BJ Penn shown at UFC 107 he is by the best fighter at 155 and has to go down ever sold as the best at 155. What involved me more is how many challengers suggest they could set BJ away and have the skills to accomplish so. BJ has fought up welterweight and won battles, he has battled stories such as Matt Hughes and GSP for titles, he in addition has previously fought recent gentle heavyweight champ Lyoto Machida when driving over 205 catchweight. Recall BJ Penn has been champion at equally welterweight (champion at UFC 46 and stripped when he signed for K-1) and lightweight defended since UFC 80, he has beaten Joe Stevenson, Sean Sherk, Kenny Florian and lately Diego Sanchez at UFC 107.
Additionally it moves for GSP, he has defended his name three times, every challenger suggests they will overcome GSP, again his skills, perseverance and champion thinking guarantees he wins the fight before he enters the octagon. GSP has been champion since UFC 83, he has defended against Jon Fitch at UFC 87, BJ Penn aka “greasegate” at UFC 94 and Thiago Alves at UFC 100.
In the event that you go up to middleweight, what can you say about mayweather vs mcgregor? The Brazilian has beaten every challenger facing him for a long time, he moved up to mild heavyweight and beaten a former champion in Forest Griffin and harmful striker John Irwin. There are lots of demands Anderson to intensify and struggle teaching partner and recent champion Lyoto Machida but refuses do to being friends. Very respectable but eventually he has got the skills to beat the dragon.
The only real problem in that controversy is if Lyoto Machida and Brock Lesnar are good enough to be long term champions at their particular weights. Lyoto has only defended his name when, which had the whole world question the effect against other Brazilan Shogun Rua. The rematch is born for March 2010. Then you definitely have former WWE champ who is a thought in his 4 fights in the UFC, he has beaten icon Randy Couture, Joe Mir at their rematch and Heath Hearing.
His problem maybe when he battles tactical and really specialized competitors as his raw power and shear size can discourage 90% of heavyweights. Brock is apparently getting within the worst of his accidents and has been penciled in to battle in July against number one contender Shane Carwin. For me personally both have the ability to be champion for several fights but doubt they will for the shear reality the caliber of competitors in both weights.
Shogun Rua, current number 1 challenger and recently lost to Machida at UFC 104. The rematch is penciled in for UFC 113. Rua hasn’t found his best because joining the UFC but Dana Bright and Joe Silva see him as the quantity one. You will find three fighters who absolutely would give Shogun dilemmas if he victories the title.
Anderson Silva, recent UFC middleweight winner has fought twice at the weightier fat and damaged both former champion Forrest Griffin and Wayne Irwin within the first rounds. He doesn’t battle with the weightier practitioners and privately speaking I believe he could trouble anyone. He has said he would not battle stable mate Lyoto Machida.
