    DC was the 4th best wrestler IN THE ENTIRE WORLD in his weight class, yet he gets no respect for being athletic.

    Amazes me.

    Ronda Rousey gets the same dismissal here. It's a joke.

    Sherdog uses the "eyeball test" for athleticism.

    It's because some people don't appreciate that the gap between 4th and the 1st is not all thst big in the Olympics, it's not like every division has a Karelin who was vastly superior and even he suffed an upset loss

    I dont think anyone dismisses her, but I do know if a male fighter told you he was from a judo background you would likely raise an eyebrow and wonder how that would transition into MMA

    Was listening to an interview with Pat Militiech, and he said the worlds is actually harder than the Olympics, or pretty much on par. It's just that for the Olympics, you have to peak at the perfect time. A lot of guys are burnt out by then, because of the worlds, and other tournaments.

    DC is one of only 3 Americans (might have been 4) in wrestling history to ever win the worlds. That's crazy.

    DC & Romero are probably the two most athletic guys on the roster. DC is extremely explosive and he uses that in every fight to win.

    What gets me is how easy DC is making it look against some real tough guys and DC is a newbie when it comes to MMA, but Jones really isn't different. His only tough fight was against Gus.

    Both guys have some amazing natural talent.

    One big difference is jones makes it look easy because he is good but dwarves fighters in his weightclass.

    the first times jones fights someone his size he has trouble

    It's because he has a bulky frame so all the tards say "Durrr Cormier is fat he eats KFC and Jones is so much bigger than him".
