    Silva in his prime from 2005-2009 would beat Weidman 90 out of 100 times

    Prime Wanderlei destroys Weidman, especially under Pride FC rules. You are talking About ferocity that Weidman wouldnt have the ability to take.

    I and many others picked Weidman to beat Silva the first time. There's nothing concrete to show that he wasn't in his prime at that point. Silva had a very carefully manufactured run and benifited greatly fighting for years in a talent starved division.

    even to look at, then when he started i couldnt believe how he could get away with how he fought, absolute savage as it gets, like a street fighter mentality in professional combat, frenzied even !

    Weidman at his best was just a stylistic nightmare for all of the reasons Sonnen was and more. Great wrestler like Sonnen but also with a solid BJJ game, solid chin, competent striking skills. I think Silva may have slipped a little but not substantially enough to warrant an argument that few years prior Weidman wouldn't have been competitive. I think Prime Silva vs. Weidman would have gone similar to Sonnen/Silva I only Weidman doesn't choke in the eleventh hour like Sonnen did and manages to win a dominant UD.
