I know very well when and how he has been submitted. I have watched all of Anderson's fights multiple times. What I was saying with my original post was that he has lost to superior bjj but he has never lost due to wrestling.

Also note in that post that I said that it only makes Weidman an interesting match up. I still believe Anderson will win.

Owns - You are thinking of Takase. Silva was clearly beating Chonan before the flying heel hook.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

No, no... I make this a place you don't want to come to. Because you're a drama queen.

Jonny's a big boy, and I'm sure if he's bothered by my post, he'll let me know.

But back on topic. If you're bothered by my posts, there's an ignore feature that's easy to use.

That said... I've seen you say more than once that Weidman has a snowball's chance in hell of winning this fight. Don't deny it you rascal.
Hendricks perhaps has the best chance at WW to beat GSP...that said I would pick GSP winning a comfortable dec.

Machida or Gustaf have the best chance vs. Jones? I would still pick Jones easy.

Weidman has the best chance at 185 in my eyes. Doesn't mean I am not picking Anderson inside the first 2 rounds...

Weidman has a solid chance compared to others. He is a skilled fighter. No one here is denying that nor hinted that he wasn't.

That glaring weakness really was his downfall against Lutter... oh wait there was Hendo that got him down... and then lost, or when Chael got him down and didn't even come close to finishing him. You say glaring weakness, I say point me to the wrestler that's beaten Anderson by exploiting his weakness.
Lol are you really gonna act like Chael didn't dominate him for the entire fight except the last ten seconds? Chael didn't need to finish him, if he had played it safe he would have rode out the last two minutes and beat Anderson by decision.

Chael might not have won but don't kid yourself, he made Anderson look very, very human. Now you have Weidman is better in every aspect than Chael, I just don't see how Anderson can win this.

He should be training DBL takedowns with chale and g&p with someone like Coleman. think of someone with chael's wrestling skills and enough power to end it on the ground. They would dismantel silva.

to be honest, Coleman's GNP was only really effective when he could use headbutts.


Fedor, Mir, Lytle, Serra, Hendo, Chuck, Minowaman, Maynard, Forrest, Hunt
Pickett, Cerrone, Matt Brown, Bisping, Weidman, Barnett, Lawler

You are talking about Weidman. Not only does he have a lot of ground and pound power but he has a great submission game. His wrestling is likely better than Chael's as well, he's so aware during scrambles. I know it's sloppy MMAmath but Chael was defeated in pure wrestling by Munoz and Weidman made Munoz look like an amateur.

Definitely, Coleman even admitted that. Fedor became the real ground and pound king once actual rules were implace. To do this day few if any can ground and pound in guard like him.

Yeah... Weidman's got 'no chance'.
remember when silva had surgery on his knees 11 weeks before the lutter fight?

remember when silva subbed a black belt who also happens to be a more accomplished jujutsuka than weidman?
