    These have got to be two of the worst people to have on top of you.

    Davis didnt chance his hand against Magalhaes, and Weidman only briefly did so against Maia. But those are legit BJJ ATG killas.

    Anderson got out, but only because Weidman was feeling alpha and went for a low percentage sub opportunity.

    Im trying to think of anyone who would have a chance, and Jacare aside its difficult.

    Lorenz Larkin? Only because I've seen the man hop on one leg defending a take down.

    Really?

    As for Jones, we have no idea what that looks like.

    If Davis got on top of Jones, i wouldnt be surprised if it got ugly real quick for bones.

    Well Chael did get up from under Jones' first takedown, but did get mauled in the end... I think he has the wrestling to get up from under Davis. Just my opinion, though.

    I would love to see Davis fight Roger and go to the ground, just to see what happens next...

    Came here to say this - the guy gets a lot of hate but he has an amazing ability to get back up onto his feet - i hhonestly thought chael would grind him out to a lop sided ud

    Pretty sure Rashad could get out from under David since he was able to outwrestle him for 5 rounds.

    People really need to rewatch that fight. He was countering almost the whole time. You say he out wrestled him, but in pure wrestling Phil is much better. Rashad has a very nice boxing game, and a low center of balance, and played a very cute counter game, but he landed 3 takedowns to davis '2.

    Rashad got a grand total of 0 shots on Davis the whole match.

    That fight was so boring, i dont think anyone rewatched it.

    I would have to say:
    JBJ
    Rashad
    Jacare
    Chael
    Anderson
    Gus

    Exactly Rashad won because of his well rounded game not his better wrestling. Rashad and Jones are the only two fighters at LHW who can compete with Davis at wrestling though and maybe Cormier at HW(who Davis would destroy due to reach).

    Oh yeah. Not Larenz Larkin though. King Mo manhadled him although he was juiced but still I like LL but he needs to work on his wrestling.

    Whats with the Davis sack swinging?...cormier would get destroyed by Phil Davis due to reach,...u serious? DAFUQ u been smokin on bruh?. Cormier fights heavyweights, meaning bigger longer guys than light heavyweights and beats them. And with his Olympic caliber wrassling, i think he would dictate the fight. And i don't like one of the 2 anymore than the other...i am just using common sense while NOT swangin from anyones pubis....u silly Joker.

    A guy nobody mentions, Tim Kennedy probably get could get from underneath Weidman if he was taken down.

    Munoz got up a few times, didn't he? I know Chris did a really nice job controlling him, but I'm pretty sure he eventually worked his way up a few times.

    ya that fight was awful, people always talk it up I know most of them have either never seen it or only saw it the one time live.

    if they rewatched it they wouldn't be that impressed. I remember thinking Rashad has absolutely no chance against Jones when it was over
