    Looking for ideas for fights where the striker managed to stuff the wrestler's takedowns (or quickly stand up after them), beat them up on the feet and won decisively. Not talking about some weak wrestler either. Think Jose Aldo vs Mendes or vs Edgar. Those are the obvious ones. Can you give more examples, aside from McGregor vs Alvarez, Aldo vs Everyone, Chuck Lidell, etc...?

    Russow vs Duffy. I know it didn't work out, but he was implementing a great counter wrestling gameplay before atoms were split.

    Crocop vs Coleman is easily the first thing that comes to mind. Even as a wrestler, I loved watching that dude work elite guys over without breaking a sweat. Him and Jack Johnson were made to grapple but happened to reach the top in striking.
