    I became a Kopylov fan when I saw this... So much for the so-called "new breed" & "evolution thing"...

    I haven't seen a sweep or a joint lock used in a long time. They're not really useful at high level MMA anymore

    Nate and nick have rarely ever tried to defend a takedown, they are just confident in their ground game if their opponent wants to test it, how many times were they taken down and got a sub in the next 15 seconds or so

    And Nogueira sweeping Randy Couture was also pretty amazing, especially considering that Couture was an olympic wrestler (alternate).
