That seemed like such a bizarre strategy to me. Chael is useless off his back, in that position he's like a fish out of water. Most of his losses came precisely from that position. Jones, Rashad, Tito, Maia all stopped him fairly quickly and effortlessly when he was lying on his back. I also believe Babalu dominated him in that position but I might be wrong about that assumption (I don't remember all intricacies of that fight). But it doesn't change the fact that Chael has good top control on the ground but folds and gives up quickly when he is on the bottom. His guard is not dangerous at all. Yet Fedor was letting him back to his feet after each knockdown or takedown instead of laying GNP on him. He was hesitant to go to the ground as if Chael was Werdum, Oleinik or Vinny Magalhaes (guys who have dangerous guards), I didn't understand that gameplan at all.
