Alright, full disclosure: I'm not really a fan, nor am I a critic. I like any fight he's in though. He's exciting and you know it. Anyway,I have compiled a small sampling of Heavyweights who are known for their ground game, whether it be wrestling or submission, and put their numbers of takedowns, passes and submissions next to them. I think the relationship between these two numbers (as racked up within the body of each respective fighters career in the UFC) is relevant and I'll explain why, in case it's not clear. This isn't a score based on the volume of takedowns or passes, more the likelihood that afighter can turn these into fight-ending submissions.
