Nate Diaz > Michael Johnson > Edson Barboza
No takedowns or clinches involved
Off the top of my head I want to say
Penn vs. Sanchez?
Garcia vs. KZ 1
Kongo vs. Barry
I could be wrong.
A lot of takedown attempts from Sanchez
I'm pretty sure there was some takedown there.
When you're trying to finish a rocked opponent on the ground, this is not a kickboxing match anymore.
Andersen vs Diaz
Steve Cantwell loved to do this.
I think most of his fights were like that.
Cane-Cantwell, Stann-Cantwell 3, Diabate-Cantwell...
Velasquez-Stoinic...Cain simply turned him into his kickboxing sparring partner.
JDS-Mirco - or wait, that was more like Muai Thai.
Barboza-this british guy forgot his name.
Rory vs Lawler 2,unless you're counting the ending on the ground.
Lawler vs Condit.
Stann vs Silva.
TJ vs Barao,both fights.
Machida vs Shogun 1.
Condit vs hardy
Condit vs diaz
Even Condit/Lawler had no grappling whatsoever involved with the exception of 1 failed takedown attempt
If you don't count the end, CroCop-Barry was in that direction
Cung Le vs Bisping
Any gsp fight
Condit vs Diaz had a take down and sub attempt.
PrideFC, but Pulver vs. Gomi. That was damn near a boxing match.
I think most MMA fans prefer stand-up fights as they boo when there is too much mat inaction. Suspending the ground and pound option would be a welcome sight.
