Lutter has NO advantage in this. People don't realize that Silva has ground game just cuz they saw him pick apart the UFC's top MW strikers with ease. Silva by domination; yet again.
The only thing Silva has subbed people with were strikes.
Silva's takedown defense is suspect. He sure defended Chonan's heel hook didn't he? How about Takase's triangle? That Silva, he's such a whiz on the ground.
Silva's bread and butter is his standup, and his ground game will continue to be questionable until he's taken to the ground. Him getting his BJJ blackbelt with the Nog's doesn't really mean that much, because it's about how you execute your gameplan.
Besides they were Pride cans...which are still better than most UFC fighters anyways!
Typical tiring Pride nuthuggery. Lutter would have no problem laying on top of Silva for the decision. Would it be exciting? Certainly not, but I can also see that happening.
