You're kidding..right? He's lost 2 fights by submission, one fight 3 years ago and the other was a out of sheer desperation a FLYING SCISSOR HOOK HEEL, an absolutely crazy submission no one could have escaped.
If you're going to try and find a weakness in Silva atleast make sense..please.
Now as for Lutter, what I will agree with is he has a better chance at defeating Silva than Cote does...but again, no, Lutter doesnt have a "good chance". And no, Lutter is not "world class", if he was world class he'd be competing against MUCH better competition. He's a good grappler but Silva is just too well rounded for the guy. Lutter can end up eating a knee or uppercut with his slow takedowns with such a dangerous opponent. He's light years ahead of Lutter for striking and is better than him on the ground. C'mon people...just...think.
Listen, if these guys werent on this show, the same people that are going around "These guys have a chance against Silva", if Lutter or Cote all of a sudden got a title shot WITHOUT being on the show, they would think differently about the entire thing.
I'm tellin you, the people that think Lutter or Cote can beat Silva is just out the sheer fact that they don't want to be cheated, from watching the TUF show and following these guys through several weeks, they just want to convince themselves that Lutter/Cote is going to give Silva a rough time...listen people, it's not happening, I'm sorry, not from these 2. There were reasons why these guys were on this show to begin with. Silva is going to get pushed, he is going to lose, he is going to have a close fight, but it's not coming from these 2 guys, I'm sorry you feel cheated.
You can pull that shit "On every given Sunday anyone can win", OF COURSE, we KNOW this, it's for EVERY sport, but if all you have to go on is "on any given Sunday", it obviously means you have your doubts.
