Lindland: I've got the gameplan for Chael to finish Silva in 3 rounds

by Jonathan Shrager | source:

JS: Haha, sounds sensible. Now you’ve gone on record as stating that Anderson is already attempting to shirk Chael. If the fight eventually materialises, how would Chael fare in the rematch?

ML: I think the rematch would look just like the first one, except I’ve got a game plan for Chael to finish him before the end of the third round. So, yeah it’ll look similar to their first encounter, but with some additional techniques and strategy, it won’t make it to the championship rounds.

JS: WOW, ok. Just trying to probe a little further, would these additional techniques involve wrestling submission holds or BJJ?

ML: (Sounds jokingly astounded) BJJ submissions? We are not Brazilians. We are Americans. You understand that right? Why would we be working BJJ? We do not employ BJJ. We employ American wrestling submissions.

Maybe Lindland can deploy the brilliant gameplan he used against Vitor.

Anderson does seem to get a little fired up sometimes against certain opponents but I don't think anyone can possibly argue that Anderson isn't humble. I mean he did get on his hands and knees and bow to Chael after their first fight and then continue to hug him. Can't get any more humble than that...
