Mace didn't fight Grievous in the movies at all right?
The closet he came was in the clone wars 2003.... Caught Grievous while taking off, crushed his chest up... but in the actual movies, no they definitely didn't.
Okay sorrry, i was thinking of something else. The real reason they didn't send Anakin is because he was just a Knight, Obi-Wan had lots of training and more experience.
Mace fought Grievous in the Labyrinth of Evil novel. It takes place right before the events of Revenge of the Sith and shows Grievous kidnapping Palpatine.
Yeah, Windu mentions that in ROTS novelization.
Mace came close to defeating Dooku in a short duel, but the latter was rescued by MagnaGuards. He later defeated Grievous before using the Force to crush the latter's chest during the attempt to kidnap Palpatine.
Why not have both anakin and obi wan to track down and destory grievous???
Send both Anakin and Obi-Wan! Might prevent Anakin from falling as well. Maybe.
That's why. Palpatine wanted Obi-wan out of the way so that he could finish turning the boy.
It was a pride thing.
Palpatine wanted Anakin to be the one to kill grievous which explains why the council refused to send him. They would not want the chancellor to believe he could manipulate Jedi affairs and so did not send Anakin.
Obi-Wan fought Grievous on numerous occasions, more than most Masters. Anakin, however, had pretty much no experience with Grievous, aside from the encounter at the beginning of ROTS, in which they didn't actually fight each other.
That being said, Palpatine took a huge gamble. The council could have agreed with him and sent Anakin, or they could have sent somebody like Fisto, leaving Obi-Wan to look out for Anakin.
They needed Anakin to spy on the Chancellor, that's why.
