I agree that Anderson is far more mobile than Rich on his feet and is quicker both in striking and side to side movement.
Rich can take that away with some good leg kicks and by taking Anderson down and punishing him. Rich needs to wear down Anderson physically, beat on him some and use his superior physical power; otherwise he’ll lose again.
I think Rich can put together a game plan to win but I still give the edge to Anderson unless Rich executes his game plan to perfection.
