Spot on. Failed takedowns are the biggest tactical mistake in MMA today. Maynard is one of the few who can use a failed takedown to transition into a static position from which he'll eventually get a takedown. Matt Hughes used to be able to do this. For almost everyone else, if the takedown doesn't work, it's a waste of time and energy. Edgar is at the leading edge of using takedowns as setups for strikes, a trend I suspect we'll see others following soon.
