uhhh no..he HAS submitted guys before...and he HAS put good grapplers in dangerous positions   both of these things show his grappling/submission ability..again, dont be a dull sherdog fight finder analyst   and no, i didnt see chael grab maia's neck, he was too busy getting thrown and tooled on the ground

Cool man, when Buffer announces the result it will be "Weidman by failing at dangerous submissions". Obviously Weidman is better at submissions than Chael, did you see him grab Maia's neck? No one else could possibly do that!

to be fair, Mark was "in the mix" before Chris stopped him, pretending he wasn't doesn't solidify whatever point you were trying to make imo.

"I get your point, but there's a lot of assuming in the post, Anderson is the most dominate Champ in uFc History, but to say Chris doesn't have a chance violates the entire nature of MMA imo." He has a chance. Strong wrestler with sub aggression might be the most universally dangerous type in the sport. Still makes no sense to pick him to win, though, unless one just wants to be contrary.

I get your point, but there's a lot of assuming in the post, Anderson is the most dominate Champ in uFc History, but to say Chris doesn't have a chance violates the entire nature of MMA imo. Anything can happen, it's the "will it" that keeps us all watching...

If he's so much better at submissions then why isn't he getting more submissions? This is hilarious. He might be better at positioning, passing, etc, but those aren't submissions the last time I checked. He's certainly probably better at *defending* submissions, I'll give you that. Who do you think is more likely to be finished by a sub from Weidman if the fight hits the ground: Alessio Sakara, or Anderson Silva? Mark Munoz, or Anderson Silva?
