Thank you for being completely irrelevant and off topic!

As far as Anderson's ground game, he'll be able to hold his own.

Sorry man, the damn alcohol gets the best of me. Best I think this fight will be a first round TKO from Silva. My argument about speaking still stands, though.

The preceding message is simply the opinion of the poster.

Damn...it s tuesday night. Why you drinking?


1. Fight aint going to the ground.
2. If it does, Anderson has the ability to pull strong guard and stall the fight enough to force a stand-up.
3. Fight aint going to the ground.

PS. Does Anderson really always pull spider guard???

Do not have class Monday Wednesday Friday. But I agree, if Silva is taken down, I think he can handle it without much of a problem at all.

he lost to carlos newton when newton was at the top of his game. but i'd have to say that, coming from chute box, and brazil in general, BJJ is pretty much engrained in his DNA!

whiskey, racism, money, grease, twinkie's, guns.....yep lol thats about it

Silva will do fine if the fight goes to ground. He'll be able to control Lutter and get back to standing.

As for him 'needing' to speak better English. Let the fighting do the talking, interviews come 2nd

If you watch Chuck fight you will notice how he can avoid being taken down, or if he does get taken down he just stands back up. Sprawl and Brawl as it is called. Anderson has his best chance of winning if he can keep the fight on his feet and out of Lutters control. Which defanitly is stong point. No matter what I just dont think that Lutter has an answer for silva's strikes.

I'm a big Silva fan and i cant say Ive seen many of lutter's fights but quite frankly i dotn think lutter stands a chance. I think that if he is able to take silva to the ground he will have expended too much energy because the number of times he will have to try and trying to get past the knees and the speed of silva. By the time it gets to the ground he will have not much left in the tank and silva will either be able to escape and get back to his feet or be able to stall it long enough.
