Mike and Max Griffin's striking was pretty even although Griffin was getting the better of Perry, no one was dominating the striking. Perry's granite chin was a big factor in eating Griffin's strikes. In the 1st round Perry got Griffin to the ground easily and gained mount very easily showing that he was far better at the ground game than Griffin. Perry went 3 rounds losing the striking and only went for a takedown at the last minute of the 3rd and last round. Sure, if Perry wanted to test his striking and attempt the takedown that's fine for the 1st two rounds, but once you realize that you may have not won the 1st two rounds you'd better finish it in the 3rd and how do you finish it if your Mike Perry......well, obviously you're light years ahead of your opponent in the ground department, you should take it there. If Perry had gone for the TD in the beginning of the 3rd round he would have easily beaten Griffin. That fight showed that Perry has no Fight IQ and if his corner wasn't yelling, "Takedown, Takedown, Takedown" they have low Fight IQ also.
