Ok, I think we could have done without the "WWF" reference.

We dont need any personal thrash talking.

I for one, have absolutely no facts to back up my opinion that Travis will beat Anderson.

None to back me up whatsoever, and yet I think it will happen. I have a gut feeling if you will.

Thats the truth. And theres more people who feel this way.

"Silva isn't good on the ground"

Just goes to show how unknowledgeable a lot of the frequent posters are.
Dude has only seen two Silva fights I'm sure.

I have to admit I was pulling for Cote because I'm Canadian but Cote's world is stand up and he is no where near the striker Silva is and while anything can happen in a fight, couldn't see Patrick submitting Anderson. The chances improve with Lutter but I guess Anderson is supposed to be decent on the ground too ... at least with Lutter you have a guy who knows it has to get to the ground and can do something on the ground

If Lutter has success getting the fight down, he won't have an "easy" time of trying to submit Silva because of Silva's length, core and leg strength. These are tools that can be useful in controlling someone from the bottom to get the fight back standing.

I too noticed Lutter telegraphs his take down attempts with that left jab followed by the quick drop for a single leg or possibly an ankle pick which I think Silva can get a line on and exploit.

On the other hand Silva fights in an unorthodox stance with his lead leg being that much closer for Lutter to grab.

I've seen Silva effectively control guys in his guard AND reverse them without unlocking his legs and finishing them with strikes.

I've still got some more thinking to do on this one, but you guys can play with those bits of information and come up with some more scenarios. Especially in light of all the talk of Silva's ground ability.

Yea, Lutter will most likely fall victim to knees and impecable striking. Lutter's take downs are sloppy, slow and all over the place, which can easily relate to a knee. I think Lutter's best chance at beating Silva is to do what Franklin suggested, drop to one knee so Silva can't knee him in the head. lol

silva's not that good on the ground. I mean i dont consider rich franklin that good on the ground either. But silva can most def hold his own on the ground he's a bjj blackbelt and he trains with the nog bro's. Silva is going to have trouble with lutter on the ground but im also sure silva will be training to improve his takedown defence and as he said polish his bjj. I think silva will be ready for looter allot more than looter is ready for silva. I dont care how looter is spelled. Lutter is going to get his ass knocked out and if he does get it to the ground hes gonna be having allot harder a time trying to sub silva then patrick cote. Silva's probably gonna be up in the moutains somewhere training with the BIG NOG making 100% sure that if it does go to the ground it will not matter.Silva's bjj and grappling still will not be near lutter but hes gonna be training with guys that are better than looter at bjj. with better takedowns like big nog. Silva's already a bb and hes always getting better. I give lutter a 1/5 chance of pullign a submission off. I dont count him out tho, i woudlent be entirely suprised since lutter is the best grappler hes ever fought in his entire career.
