    Happens too many times....
    Chael- Anderson perfect example as Anderson was fighting on his heels entire first fight which gave the illusion that Sonnen could st and with Anderson which is a joke.

    Also in 2nd fight with Mousasi and a juiced jacare in 3rd round in a smaller cage in Connecticut- Gegard on heels worried about td, took a heavy right which led to Souza pushing him up against cage and got td.

    not an excuse. Khabib demolished conor and I'm happy about it. its just so hilarious how conor was so confident that he didnt need to worry about khabib's striking nd he gets dropped

    Tyronë Wöödley is a striker. Has some of the fastest & most powerful hands in the UFC right now. Tommyboy hardly got "dropped by a grappler because he was too busy thinking about the takedown." He got dropped by one of the best strikers in the UFC, and the takedown threat was probably a contributing factor in why he got hit. But it wasn't the primary factor.

    gsp made his career out of having his opponent scared shitless of his 15 foot dbl leg. He was free to dominate on the feet in almost every fight.

    I figured the most obvious answer would be JDS/Cain 2 & 3

    Ellenberger dropped Condit with a TD fake into a hook.

    Does Weidman vs Silva count?
