Yea Lutters ground game is crazy. Rich getting out of that armbar was classic. Lutter vs Maia would be insane. The ground war in that would be something to watch.
Lutter's JJ isn't at the level of Maia's JJ and i honestly believe Maia would get him in the second.

It kind of seemed like Silva let Lutter take him down so that he could be lutter at his own game, but still Lutter looked pretty good on the ground with Silva until he got caught in the triangle.
i believe he did. idk how much truth is behind this, but Silva said he let Lutter take it to the ground so that he could catch him in a submission to avenge his training partner, Jose "Pele" Landi-Jons' loss to Lutter. in that match Lutter won by armbar and Silva said he likewise wanted to submit Lutter. again, take it for what it is worth.
