Simply because a fighter has been taken down does not mean that he has awful TDD. It's quite obviously a hyperbole to help rationalize his argument.
Silva can be taken down. He is not an impervious machine. Noone has able to capitalize on the chinks in his armor to the fullest though. Silva uses his intelligence to beat fighters, his ability to adapt and be like water when it comes to technique is what has kept him undefeated since entering the UFC.
