Lindland...may be a boring fighter and an off bore; nonetheless he has shown an innate ability to eff shut down whoever he has faced in regards to their ability to apply subs..chain together submission...reverse..sweep or transition to subs.. There have been many top notch wresttlers who have been unable to maintain the dominace..positional control w/out being subbed or off blunted; i.e. they can't even eff land any sort of strikes. Matt can't hit...at all; but unlike other wrestlers he can actually land his shots... I for one am impressed randleman...couture...coleman...trigg..hughes...henderson..and countless others have been exposed and tapped on numerous occassions by a variety of submission grapplers; yet with the exception of busta lindland has not been subbed, controlled or even really swept or anything else. i don't know how to explain how or what he does, but all i know is almeida...lutter..doerkensen...semenov....weir..and countless others have not been able to do a thing w/him in the area of submission. Any of you guys impressed or do u feel he just stalls..an if so how come none of the other wrestlers can eff do the same...randy has been tapped 2 times...randleman 2 times... coleman once...henderson 2 times...trigg three times..and so on and so on.
