    Yes. They were a great staple of the division. Dogs that could capture the gold if they were good enough at what they did, and at worst they were a tough fight for anyone at the top.

    No, it's the most basic, boring style ever produced. Muay Thai + BJJ is slicker, fun and gets finishes. Although you would get some Cain Velasquez in there sometimes. Glad it's gone.

    I'm liking these new European / Russian and a little of the African styles when the Africans come to fight. Not like what Israel did last night.

    European / Russian standouts ever since Taktarov, Igor, Suloev or Semenov have been slick and fun.
