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.
@HOSS I just rewatched that first round, first half of the round Anderson did reallly well with kicks, second half Henderson was on top on the ground, I would say both did minimal damage. Sure Id give that round to Henderson but that was more of a lay n pray.
You are right Lutter did well on the ground, but like you said hes a JJ guy.
I would say Sonnen has big trouble with BJJ guys as he a lot of times ends up subbed. Saying Silva has trouble with wrestlers I think is a bit exaggerated.
