I don't know about everyone else...but I see Anderson Silva just simply out-striking Travis early, and not even giving Lutter a chance to get the takedown. Silva's strikes are pin-point, and he rarely misses...if ever.
If Lutter can't get in on Anderson early, he's going to get TKO'd. Don't take my word...just ask Leben and Franklin.
And if the fight would go to the ground, I don't see much changing. Everyone keeps thinking that Lutter is the holy grail of the mat. Need I remind you:
Anderson Silva earned his BJJ Black Belt from the Nogueira's about 3 months before he fought Rich Franklin. You think his ground game is that non-existant, and that Travis will just dominate him there? C'mon now...stop kidding yourself.
