    I thought Cormier was gonna "Rag doll" him?! Olympic wrestling doesn't mean shit.

    Jones is the best wrestler in MMA, and he doesn't need an "olympic" title to validate that.

    I agree with this. Wrestling, even Freestyle Wrestling is just not the same as MMA Wrestling.

    MMA striking =/= K1 striking
    MMA wrestling =/= Olympic wrestling

    Put Jones in a wrestling tournament. See how he does.

    In MMA, there are more tools. More setups for wrestling and more defenses. This is the difference between wrestling and MMA wrestling. Despite the fact GSP put that on display for years, no one UNDERSTANDS and always expects the more decorated college or Olympic wrestler to win the MMA fight!

    Jones, Cain, GSP all have really sick MMA wrestling. I had a feeling Jones was gonna really go for takedowns because he had said he loves to beat guys at their own game. I wasn't sure he could do it to Cormier, but he did......

    Jones was outwrestled by a swedish boxer. Why? Because Gus is big.

    What's become clear in MMA is that size and cardio determine who will win the wrestling, unless there is an absolutely gigantic difference in skill.

    In MMA, yes. Just like olympic wrestling > MMA wrestling in the olympics.

    Come on, man.
