Obviously I was wrong.
Talking seriously now though, fair play for that comment.
The thing is, toughness can only get you so far when you are up against Elite level fighters that have a style and skill set which Anderson carries. Fighters like Bonnar, Griffin are tailor made for Silva, slow feet, slow hands, bad timing etc. There is no substitute for technique, combine that with toughness and you have a hell of a fighter.
