While I too can see the comparisons, considering that Fedor subbed him via armbar in the first anyways, I don't believe it would've had the same impact(it went to the ground anyways, which is where Lindland wanted it and Fedor won it). Afterall, this is the dude that got subbed TWICE in one fight by Bustamante and given the size he was giving up and Fedor's submission skills, it probably didn't have as significant of an impact.
