Tatame.com has the story:

For the fight against Thales Leites, in UFC 97, the champion called what’s best in terms of ground fight: the Jiu-Jitsu world champions Ronaldo “Jacar” Souza and Andr Galvo. And for Jacar, who'll be back at Dream 9 (check here), Anderson is with the ground game ready for the bout.

“Anderson is training well and is strong in all MMA fundaments. Anderson is a phenomenon standing, but if anyone thinks that will take Anderson down and submit, is completely wrong. He’s a talent on the ground, has black belt level”, says Jacar, betting on his friend’s Jiu-Jitsu. “Anderson is intelligent and good on MMA, he can surprise any opponent. But, for this fight, I think he will make a game that he is better.”
