    With his shot chin this should be his new gameplan in every fight. Great triangle

    He used to go for subs like crazy in the WEC.

    I didn't watch very much WEC, admittedly, but I don't recall any in the UFC. I'm old though and watched a ton of fights so I don't remember everything....

    he submitted paul kelly, dennis siver, evan dunham who has very underrated grappling himself, and edson barboza in the ufc. In the wec he subbed danny castillo, james krause, ed ratcliff, and chris horodecki. All were very slick subs

    Anyone can get caught with a killer body shot. I've trained for years and was only dropped once by a body shot...and that was against my little brother. It happens, if it was something that has happened more than once I could agree with you but the guy fights more than anyone and it's never been a problem before

    He also put Jury in an omoplata as soon as they hit the ground in their fight and ended up taking his back for much of the bout as well. Cerrone utilizes BJJ as well as anybody in MMA short of Demian Maia IMO.

    If you want to see impressive offensive BJJ off one's back, go watch Bendo-Cerrone 1.

    I'm glad Cerrone went for the takedown. He's got a very well-rounded game, no reason not to use it.

    And while he is one of the most active fighters ever, no reason to take more wear-and-tear than needed.

    Cerrone having 16 wins by submission has to be one of the most overlooked facts out there. Many just focus on his recent KOs. He's been interviewed before about it. Said he knew that being a kickboxer people would be able to take him down so he spent majority of his early mma training on ground game so he'd be ready when it happened.

    Cerrone has 16 submission wins, his BJJ is no joke.

    Yep. Cerrone's shown crafty BJJ during his career. This isn't a shocker, but beautifully executed.

    He's got great BJJ, but I think he stands up for entertainment purposes. That's the only reason I can think of for him not using his ground game more.

    He came very close to submitting Benson a few times. Dude is legit and has been for awhile.
