I just read that Jon brought in Izzy Martinez as his wrestling coach for UFC 182. You know who Izzy is, right? He's the same wrestling coach who Jon used to gameplan for UFC 165. You know, the fight where Jon went 1 for 11 in takedowns and managed to get 10 seconds of top control before Gus stood up. Izzy was the guy who trained Jon's grappling for that fight. You know, the same fight where Gus got rocked by an elbow but Jon still couldn't take him down even in a halfway KO'd state. DC gets flack on Sherdog for ragdolling Hendo just because Hendo came in 6 pounds light. Yet these same Sherdoggers "praise" Jon Jones for fighting a European striker and going 1 for 11 in TD's and failing to implement any top control for his single TD. Jeeze. Sherdog is a tough crowd. I keep hearing that Jon will use top control to finish DC. That doesn't bother me to hear that. What I find odd is that I'm hearing this in light of the fact that Jon couldn't even hold down Gus or Glover who aren't even wrestlers. How the fuck does that compute? Non wrestlers = better than Olympic wrestler? That's like saying 2 plus 2 equals 7. That's like saying: [wrestling = Gus>Glover>DC] That's like saying your fucken mother can out-dunk Kobe Bryant. Are Sherdoggers batshit crazy? Somebody help me out here. Set me straight. Please talk some sense into me. Dudes, DC has been training nothing but top level wrestling since last summer. DC's wrestling against Hendo and Barnett was far less than it will be on Saturday night since he's never trained it this hard in years. His wrestling is on a level not seen before in his previous mma fights. So even though DC's wrestling will be better than it's ever been in years, and even though Jon couldn't take down or hold down non-wrestlers like Gus and Glover -- many Sherdoggers still think Jon will outwrestle DC and hold him down? Okay. I get it now. PS -- Remember this article? http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/ot...itschko-brothers-insist-striking-coaches.html You know, when Jon's team said he could box the Klitschkos? Methinks that camp is full of arrogance. But AKA is full of elite grinders who train ala Cain. DC by destruction and/or manrape. Discuss.
