Buakaw has the massive experience and training in Muay Thai, but Silva has a 50 pound weight advantage and has much longer reach. Despite Buakaw's overwhelming striking experience and record, can he overcome Silva's advantages?
The more I think about it, Anderson has a significant weight advantage even at fight weight. We can talk about Buakaw being more skilled or whatever, but still....he's way smaller. I'm not saying he can't win, but he's got his work cut out for him.
At their natural weights, uh....yeah Anderson would be like a giant to him. Last I heard, Buakaw walks around at 160. Anderson outweighs him by 60 lbs. It doesn't bode well for the Thai legend.
