Im not trying to be a smart ass here, I really cant think of a wrestler who gave him trouble other than Sonnen.
Travis Lutter also had some success on the ground in their non-title fight. He got Silva down (I believe it was with an ankle pick) and quickly moved to mount. He dropped some good punches and then ruined it by going for the sloppiest armbar in recorded history.
He was going ok in the second until Silva cracked him with an upkick that dropped him neatly into the triangle that ultimately finished the fight.
EDIT: sorry, this discussion was about wrestlers and Lutter is/was more of a BJJ guy.
