    Pretty sure he doesn't even remember it so doesn't count in his mind.

    apparently if your body goes stiff like that (as opposed to regular sleeping position look) it means there was damage to brain stem :(

    Ben is pretty well rounded: he is an elite wrestler who is well-versed in BJJ. He is NOT a one-dimensional fighter. He is like the inverse of Maia where Ben's wrestling is the equivalent of Maia's BJJ, except Ben's wrestling is more elite than Maia's BJJ.

    How would he get him down? Ben could just hit takedowns and stand back up

    BJJ guys that are too proud to work hard on their wrestling annoy me. It was the downfall of both kron and Dern tonight.

    That's one of the reasons why I respect Maia so much. The guy had no problem dropping his ego and looking for the best wrestling facilities he could find in order to develop wrestling that complimented his BJJ.

    I wish Ortega and kron would take a page out of his book.
