    DC just needs to get him off balance and down he goes.

    Theres a video about how he gets up on youtube.

    He just nonchalantly gets up when on his back.... Using his brute strength

    Roy Nelson, Shamil Abdurakhimov, Shawn Jordan, Gonzaga, Viktor Pesta and Marcin Tybura have all taken him down.

    He usually brute forces his way back up.

    Easy win for DC but that doesn't mean he should take him lightly, Lewis is a very deceiving opponent. He always looks rocked, injured or tired and is typically losing the fight until he wins.

    He doesn’t have that great of take down defense but the guy is nearly impossible to hold down. He’s too strong.

    No quite the opposite actually, gives up takedowns and positioning frequently but he's surprisingly composed in those situations.. revisit some of his previous fights against wrestlers, Jared Rosholt was a fun fight, he was on his back in about 10 seconds

    Why don't more people use the "just stand up" technique

    Colin should have used it against habeeb
