The_Ultimate_Blighter Posted August 22, 2010 Report Share Posted August 22, 2010 Two big fights in as many weeks, and two very distinguished wrestlers fall. Feijao's destruction of King Mo and Silva's sub of Sonnen show the blueprints to beating the uber-dominant wrestler. It is exciting to see that the gritty wrestler can't have it all their own way. I was worried that the more conservative fighters (like Fitch) would literally just grind everyone slowly and methodically. These two fights (I hope) show a vital step in the evolution of the sport. Fighters may get taken down but they can hop straight back to their feet. Even in the fifth round - with the excessive sweat that Joe Rogan loves commenting on - top notch BJJ can still pull the win. Coming from a country where the closest we have to a double-leg take down is a rugby tackle; this has to be promising news.... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
