I don't think Anderson will submit Forrest. You can say Forrest has an overrated ground game, I won't argue with that. Although, he has never been submitted in his MMA career and I think Anderson has an overrated ground game himself. Forrest dominated Shogun on the ground. Sure, you can say Shogun was gassed, I'm not interested in excuses. He never had anything for Forrest on the ground. He also dominated Rampage on the ground. Mounted him for a whole round, a guy that is stronger than both Forrest and Anderson. I know Anderson has way better BJJ than Rampage, I'm not arguing with that. I'm just saying Rampage is a lot stronger than Anderson and Forrest had no problem with his strength on the ground. Off his back, he had a triangle which Rampage slammed his way out of. He is famous for that so you can't fault Forrest there. He fought a smarter fight than Arona at least and didn't let Rampage almost power bomb him through the octagon. He also completely neutralized his ground and pound. I think Forrest can more than hold his own against Silva who doesn't have this world class ground game himself. I'm not saying Forrest will triangle Anderson, I'm just showing examples of how Forrest has displayed his good ground game in the past.
I'm not saying Forrest will win on the ground either, although I am saying he can hold his own there and that would be the best game plan for him to try and turn it into a grappling match. That's his best chance because it is possible that he could win there. I think he has a better chance on the ground than he does standing, I'm sure you can agree with that.
