Like its ok if an actual contendor starts saying they cna beat Anderson, like Henderson, Marquardt or Okami or someone, but a fighter like Frank Trigg saying that is just hilarious. I doubt there is a single person out there besides himself that thinks he can take Anderson. I would probably say KO by knees within 2 minutes by Silva, But I think Anderson finishing within the first minute is more likely than Trigg even winning a round.

"I never thought of myself as a Top 10 guy in any weight class -- ever," Trigg said. "But I think I match up very well against Anderson Silva. I think my style, my technique, matches up against Anderson Silva better than, say, Dan Henderson or Travis Lutter. Conversely, I think Dan Henderosn would be very difficult for me to match up against. A guy like Rich Franklin is a guy that I can beat."
Rich Franklin would murder Frank Trigg.

the strategy makes sense somewhat but trigg is definitely not the person to execute it

Some of his points are valid, it is probably best to get in close and mix things up, you just have to be able to neutralize his clinch game (easier said then done).

My thoughts exactly this kind of gameplan would work better for someone like GSP (though bigger)a guy who's a great wrestler and a good striker.

He does have a point that you have to bring him down and keep him down. Dan Henderson won their first round that way. But after the round is over you need to do it again.
exactly, and for 5 rounds too

thats atleast 5 chances. 2 or 3 too many

hahaha no kidding, really wouldnt even be a fight. I dont know how he thinks he is a worse matchup then henderson, Trigg is a worse wrestler and a worse striker.

Henderson, Franklin, Okami, Maia, Marquardt, Leites, Relgic, Cote would all murder Trigg. Hell does anyone have a link to the Trigg Lawler fight, cause I am just craving to see him get KTFO right now.

This is a testament to what a badass Anderson Silva is, an average at best fighter like Trigg says he could beat him, and now, everyone want to talk to him.
