Anderson silva. Not only is he amazing in mauy thai but his ground game is top notch. He almost submited lutter with a traingle.

i agree with anderson silva. he is one of the most precise strikers in all of mma. great kicks.. great knees and has one of the most devastating Muay thai clinches. if i had a choice of having fedor in my guard or being in anderson silvas muay thai clinch.. im not sure wat id choose.

for the record.. anderson silvas ground game is NOT top notch. lutter mounted him fairly easy in the first round. im not saying its bad but ive seen better

Ya, everyone said lutter's ground game would be the end of silva, boy oh boy were they wrong, silva is no slouch when it goes to the ground.

Only 17 but love mmma and i have a vast knowledge of the different arts...

LOL? Anderson is a striker, lutter is a grappler, how the hell does a striker get a grapple in a triangle? Means silva is good, hes obvisly not top notch, i was over exadurating but it is really good.

yea i agree silva is good. but i get u were exaggerating now i just thought u literally meant he was TOP NOTCH. but he definitely is good at bjj.

if silva had a little better take down defense i honestly think he could be considered one of the best p4p fighters (excluding fedor) in the world. that guy is amazing striking and has good ground skills
