listening to the post fight interviews on sherdog, I was not encouraged to here silva say he has never been hit that hard.
I think you have made my point, if couture was fedors age then the fight would be fair. I am very successful against kids half my age, I m 44, but if I had to meet the me of 32 I would destroy the older me. I dont question Randys fitness, just his ablilty to take on not jsut a younger fighter, but a greatest one his has probably ever faced too.
I will still be rooting my ass off for him though.
Just clarifying to other posters I'm pretty sure you mean Sylvia, not Silva. The reason I'm saying that to those who aren't hardcore MMA fans may not realize that an Anderson Silva was fighting in a different organization than the one Fedor was fighting in, against Tim Sylvia.
And no, I truly believe a Couture in his 40's beats a Couture in his early to mid 30's. He's one of those fighters who got significantly better with time. I wouldn't even really root for Couture, in the end I think I like Fedor more.
But do you fight?
Thank you for clarifying the Silva , Sylvia mistake I often do that.
I want to be clear, I dont want Couture when he was
32 I want couture at
32. Exposed to the same stimulus as Fedor. Training , advancments in nutrition etc.
Also it is generally and ofcourse there are exceptions which couture may be one, that a man reaches his physical peak between 30 and 35. Though I do not have any references at this time. I dont believe that his ability to create a satisfactorily game plan would be compromised at that age. Ofcourse I pick 32 as that is Fedors age.
No I do not fight in an organized manner, I was referring to other athletic endeavors I have engaged in.
I would root for Randy because he is old like me.
As a seperate issue , it is Sylvia not Silva
