If a dehydrated out of shape slow ass Travis Lutter can almost finish Anderson and get mount,
an in shape, prepared Maia will finish him.

He is too slick, and Anderson is a BB, but Maia is on another planet
AS also had knee surgery six weeks before the fight

why do people always forget this when they talk about that fight? People also need to remember that Silva is one of only 3 men to submit Dan Henderson. The other two were Big and Little Nog.

and surprise surprise, where did Anderson get his black belt???

Big and Little Nog.

Leites has a good number of submissions, but he's not going to take out Anderson Silva, not a hope. Maia I dont think will either, yeah his BJJ for MMA is off the scale, but so far no one has tested Maia chin that I have seen, and Chael Sonnen could even finish a Paulu Filho who was not even in the same room in that fight

WAR Silva and lets see it a win by submission

I don't forget that at all, but it wasn't that bad, he was able to workout and make weight on those knees.

Its a factor, but Lutter? Come on....

Anybody who argues that Anderson's weakness is on the ground is either

a. blind
b. thinks anderson is god

its plain to see the ground is where he has trouble

nobody forgets, the facts are that he has been in trouble on the ground before.
and not on the feet,

so from what we have seen (and he has been submitted before) if he loses it will be on the ground.

It's plain to see that his ground game isn't as good as his stand-up, but I wouldn't say he's troubled on the ground. The Nogs aren't going to give you BB if you slack & I highly doubt that someone who's as serious about MMA as Anderson is would slack off on such a who aspect of his game.
