He gets him in the clinch, he can not only knee him, but he can TD him from there and dish out his game.
You make very valid points, and I'll give you credit for them. I still think your underrating Anderson, but that's fine. You have your reasons. I think we all can agree that this fight has to happen, and it's certainly ALOT more interesting then GSP/Silva. Anderson always seems to shut down the idea of ever fighting him though which is disheartening.
Money changes everything though. They could sellout Cowboys Stadium with this fight and a couple other big title fights. Probably will get in the vicinity of UFC 100 if not more buys. The fight is a goldmine waiting to happen.
