that's how you beat silva of 6 or 7 years ago, when he wasn't quite as schooled in submission grappling. I think Chael Sonnen laid out the real gameplan on how to beat Anderson today- takedowns followed by GnP until Anderson is so scared of the TD that his standup rhythm is broken. And remember not to get sloppy just because it's one minute till the fight ends.
His helmet was stifling, it narrowed his vision. And he must see far. His shield was heavy. It threw him off balance. And his target is far away.
