Fighters that stick to the game plan

I hate to use the word game plan but Frankie Edgar is one of those fighters that just always stays calm even in the worst situation and sticks to his game plan when he fights. usually its never wrong or unsuited for his opponent I must say in the fights hes lost its always usually because hes a slow starter in the beginning. He also seems to get better in every fight. I figure we can start a list of fighters that just always have a great game plan and stick to it.

BTW One of the Best if not the Best in terms Footwork in MMA

Frank Mur
Mr Wonderful
Chael P Sonnen
Jon Fitch
Jamie Varner

Chael was first fighter that came to mind....he's a wrassler...and doesn't pretend to be a kick boxer PR K1...he implements his wrasslin every fight

George was pretty consistent for years, wrasslin jabbing and winning. He never really stopped.

Urijah Faber sticks to the gameplan, ever since the losses to MTB. His fight against Caceres was a good example of a veteran wearing down a tough opponent and finishing with the trademark RNC.

There are also guys who stick to the game plan even when it's to their detriment. As a very recent example, Machida did the same things in the first three rounds against Weidman, even as it became clear it wasn't working.

"Any time that a fighter complains about an opponent running—think Henderson vs. Machida or Diaz vs. Condit—it is normally because they are not skilled at cutting their opponent off." -Jack Slack
