I didn't say I didn't want to see Vitor/Andy either just that he isn't some elite all around fighter he is a really good puncher that is all.
As far as I can recall Anderson didn't take Nate down so much as reversed him during a takedown attempt.

I don't think Anderson has ever in his entire career actively initiated a takedown, and neither has Vitor. I don't see the ground game even coming into the picture.

And point taken, Vitor isn't an all round fighter, but I still think he has a shot. I'd rather see a complete fighter like GSP get the fight too, but that doesn't seem to be on the cards right now.

Also I don't see how Wanderlei is a complete fighter either, he's never subbed (ok one lame RNC on a dazed opponent in 44 fights) or ground controlled anyone in his career, all his GnP has been via stomps. The guy is a pure standup fighter.

He sprawled and hit a switch that is a takedown he didn't reverse a takedown and gain position. Andy is actually really good at wrestling and BJJ there is just no reason to do it when you are the greatest striker ever in the sport and you are fighting guys who stink at striking. I don't expect Vitor to best Andy striking though he is really good at throwing punches Andy is really good at throwing every kind of strike.

Black Belts you make for yourself at an arts and craft store don't count. He looks like shit every time the fight hits the ground.
