    That match was actually decently competitive.

    Danis is a beast at BJJ.

    No shame at losing to a competition God like Tonon

    What the hell are you talking about?

    BJJ records are extremely consequential when it comes to reputation, rankings, sponsorship, etc. in the BJJ community.

    Gary Tonnon is considerably smaller than Danis and he's still 2-0 against him with a heel hook win in a second match.

    Also- certain rulesets can make certain match-ups look competitive even when there's a large skill gap between 2 grapplers.

    When you're hyper-focused on not getting submitted rather than actually trying to win you can "hang" with a far superior opponent.

    Dillon Danis is not elite. He never was.

    G point -- also, he can throw high kicks all day as well and not worry about takedowns (not that high kicks aren't vulnerable to other counters) -- that's one thing that I like that Ryan Hall does.
