Fitch also beat Shields.
True but Mo did take him down 2 or 3 times. But I agree, Feijao did do well in the clinch but that shouldn't be a surprise. Faijao was a huge LHW, BJJ black belt, judo blackbelt, and Muay thai expert. Aside from the grappling and wrestling skills he gained from his Bjj and judo, many of these muay Thai guys are beasts in the clinch. And also just FYI Mo was never an Olympian. He was legit world class, and definitely Olympic level, but never made the Olympic team.
True. I didn't see that fight though so I didn't speak on it. Did Fitch wrestle well?
Great response !
Lot of Indian wrestlers in Australia too which I found a bit surprising
I copied that lateral drop for years after seeing Murilo using it.
Yeah I noticed that too when I was looking for the results of recent national championships. Actually, correct me if Im wrong but I think Ali Abdo (and his brother Bilal), probably the best homegrown Aussie wrestler of all time might be of Indian descent.
All guys with long/tall frames. I'm 6 feet, but when you grapple/wrestle against a guy who is taller than you and knows how to use that leverage to his advantage...If you don't get inside you're working twice as hard to takedown or defend the takedown.
If you can't get your hips under his or can grab around both that guy's legs...You're going to have a bad fucking time.
I thought they were Iranian but could be wrong. I know there is United Wrestling Club based in Melbourne which primarily consists of wrestlers of Indian or Pakistan descent. Sam Parker is another big coach probably the longest in Australia.
that guy kind of looks like Cain, by the head at least.
Fair? It is factual. He is a great wrestler who is easy to takedown. The most glaring example in the entire thread. You are making excuses like you're his personal ballsack fluffer.
king mo was basically fighting with a non functioning knee LOL - that's why he lost. feijao was a beast back then too but mo's health was a big factor in that fight
He was a great wrestler who wasnt easy to takedown. He lost ability over time.
You just contradicted yourself in two sentences. He WAS easy to takedown. That is why he got wrestlefucked by so many people and cried about fighting wrestlers so much
Yeah when his grapplin ability eroded. Randleman couldnt take him down,and that guy took almoat everybody down.
Thread Title -
Great wrestlers who are/were surprisingly easy to takedown?
I just love when one dude is trying to wrestle so hard and fails on ever TD and then his opponent takes him down on the first try. (for example Bermudez vs Filli)
The most useless stat ever reported in MMA. Khabib did not take him down 21 times, not even close. Standing rear return is not a takedown, period.
On the other hand, MMA is not the NCAA or UWW, there are not clear cut criteria for what constitutes a takedown. Taken off your feet=taken down for better or worse. I think the fight metric guys are legit fight fans too, not "noobs" by any means.
