Risky moves can easily leave you on your back in a less than advantageous position. Chael is still a threat.
still a threat. yes. but anderson did not have the same movement in that fight that he did in fights prior too and after. if anderson comes in fairly healthy, i see him ending the fight much sooner. chael just simply is not a finisher and 25 minutes is too long to go with someone of andersons skill and no get caught.
yes i realize silva has gone the distance before but keep in mind. those fighters didnt take silva the silva the distance, silva allowed the fight to go the distance because he didnt have to finish.
