Trainer: Adherence To Strategy Paramount In Junior Dos Santos, Anderson Silva Rematch

Can he go two for two. I say yes. Six days to go!!!

I don't think Cain or Weidman doing anything different. If it aint broke then why fix it. It'll be up to the ex-champs/challenger to utilize a new game plan or to adhere to one.

Quote:
One of the key coaching figures behind former Ultimate Fighting Championship titleholders Junior dos Santos and Anderson Silva, Ramon Lemos will keep a busy schedule through the end of the year.

It starts at UFC 166 on Oct. 19 in Houston, where dos Santos will challenge Cain Velasquez for the heavyweight championship in a rubber match between the sport’s top two big men. While Velasquez recaptured the title from the Brazilian in a one-sided unanimous decision at UFC 155 in December, Lemos believes the chances of a “Cigano” knockout remain high.

“‘Cigano’ is very, very focused for this fight,” Lemos said. “It’s a very important rematch. We know about Cain’s power, but we also know that ‘Cigano’s’ hands are not light. They’re the two best in the weight division. ‘Cigano’ is a great athlete, so we are confident. We had a plan to defend the takedowns and take good shots, but ‘Cigano’ took a heavy blow in the first round [at UFC 155], kind of hung around and didn’t incorporate anything we talked about. We don’t think Velasquez absorbs blows as well as ‘Cigano,’ so if ‘Cigano’ can land his shots, I have no doubt that Cain will eventually get knocked out.”

Can Silva bounce back?
In advance of the bout, dos Santos’ handlers hired Khetag Pliev, a Russian-born Canadian wrestler with ties to Team Nogueira who qualified for the 2012 Olympics.

“I’m already seeing results,” Lemos said.

Lemos will turn his attention to Silva’s UFC 168 rematch with Chris Weidman in December as soon as he fulfills his obligations to dos Santos. He wants “The Spider” to adhere to the game plan, as he looks to reclaim the middleweight championship he held for nearly seven years. Weidman knocked out Silva with a left hook and follow-up punches at UFC 162 after the Brazilian had spent much of their battle taunting and clowning the Serra-Longo Fight Team representative.

“That’s the focus on this fight. Know that it’s a job, that it’s a title fight,” Lemos said. “Anderson is the best in the world, but he needs to focus a little more and not be overconfident. It’s normal for someone to relax after not having trouble for seven years. The only difficulty he had was against Chael Sonnen. Weidman is good, but we’re talking about Anderson Silva here.

“You have to know the other guy wants to drop punches and kicks and take it to the ground, too,” he added. “We must always be safe, protecting ourselves at all times. I’ll be honest, I don’t want Anderson 100-percent serious or 100-percent joking. He got where he is being irreverent, by doing it his way. I want a middle ground, where he gives the fans a show but focuses on the goal. In his previous fights, he put on a show and remained faithful to his strategy. This last time, he did not follow our strategy.”

I think JDS should be less worried about being taken down, weird as it sounds. He used up so my energy trying to defend the takedown, he was basically running for the whole first round. It also left him wide open for the punch was messed him up for the whole fight.

On Anderson, i expect him to be just as showy and more aggressive against Weidman, Weidman also needs to not bank on being able to catch Anderson like that again and try to take him down, he all but abandoned trying to get it to the mat after the first round last time.

I really think Anderson was ready for Weidman's wrestling/ground game last fight. Yes he was taken down quick, but Weidman did little with it. Anderson then stuffed a TD and Weidman lost confidence in it. But Anderson thought that was the fight. He stops a TD and makes Weidman throw....he wins. Wasn't the case as he didn't respect Weidman's hands.

I'm just hoping Anderson brings the same level of TD/ground defense as he seemed to have in the first fight. Hopefully he isn't doing any less work on it than he did for the first fight. But a fight is a fight. Just because you are one of the very best strikers, doesn't mean you will always win all striking battles.

He did nearly get a leg lock to be fair.

It's normal. A fight is a fight. I would feel a lot more comfortable with Seagal there though. Like it or not they usually do well when he's there.

What does nearly matter? He got in a good position to land it and Anderson stayed calm and got out of it. Isn't that more credit to Silva for defending? Rather than give credit to Weidman for "nearly" landing a leg lock?

He hit Silva with some hard blows while they we're down there. A few more minutes of that, and Silva would have been in trouble. Weidman caused Silva more distress in that brief moment, then Sonnen managed in 25 minutes.

That's a very good point. If you go back and watch all of Weidmans old fights he has bricks for hands. The guy just has serious natural punching power.

Anderson is going to need to be very more respectful of that this time around. I also feel Anderson should try to surprise Chris with some offensive striking like he used to use earlier in his career.

Anderson has got to take a different mentallity going into this one, a mentallity of not letting Weidman hit him. The get hit then hit back later some time maybe when he feels like it strategy is terrible, it doesn't work against someone with heavy hands.

Junior has got to deal damage in the first 2 minutes, go for a blitzkrieg not for the ko but just to slow Cain down a little bit then once Cain is hurt a little back off and conserve energy until an opening presents itself. Junior can't even manage 2 minutes at Cain's pace because Cain is superhuman in that regard so waiting around is death. If it's 2 minutes in and Cain is pushing Junior around and he's untouched then the fight is already going in Cain's favor.

Well of course he did, as Sonnen has pillow hands and did no damage at all. In my opinion Weidmans attack was still pretty neutralized enough. And then 2nd round Silva stuffed his TD.
