who do you think as the best all time takedowns? Rank them in order.
Have we seen a ton of takedowns from Jones?
I'd say any list of top takedowns needs to include Koscheck. His used to be ridiculously good, even if we haven't seen the driving force wrestling more recently.
cain should be ahead of lesnar for sure.
I'd put Lesnar at 10 but everything else about this list looks good.
I think a lot of people forget to take into account the opposition's Takedown Defense. That said, I don't remember Jones ever wanting to take someone down and not doing it.
yeah i kinda of forgot about cain velasquz till the end then was like shit i better put him in there somewhere. i proabably forgot other good wrestlers too.
honorable mention goes to: sherk, diego sanchez, gray maynard, weidman, munoz. i only choice UFC fighters too. no pride or any other organization.
1. Jon Jones
2) Jon jones
Tough list to think of but at least these guys seem to have taken down top class fighters for breakfast
No list without Randleman is going to be very good. Randleman would have tossed Tito on his ass with ease.
What about Fedor? Great Judo takedowns.
GSP or Jones. Overall I'd rank them like this
Rashad's gotta be considered. The way he mixes strikes with TDs is top-of-the-line.
Chael should be in the top 3.
i was never impressed with randlemans wrestleing i know he is solid ,but everyone on my list i think has better MMA wrestleing. and if tito and randleman fought back around UFC 30-40, tito would win because thats when tito was not scared of chuck liddell and was great.
People think Jones has the best takedowns ever to exist in MMA? Wow. Just wow.
One would have to think Kerr, Coleman, Severn, Randleman, and Couture would earn at least an honorable mention on such a list. Randleman and Kerr possessed sheer explosiveness, Severn and Coleman would simply muscle their way through a takedown, and Couture mastered the use of leverage to bring down larger opponents. Regardless of his methods, each one of these five represented a time in MMA that saw the rise of the wrestler.
