Is Khabib an offensive grappler though? To me that would mean searching for subs 24/7. Whereas Khabib is more about grappling control, so he can use GnP.
I’ll refrain from commenting further as we probably have different definitions of what we are talking about here.
But I will say Maia fits my definition.
Grappling is more than BJJ imo
If by offensive you mean hunting for the sub then Kron, Ferguson, Werdum, Maia, Jacare (before dummies start chirping hes a beast on top) and T-City
If you are saying controlling then Kabob, Asskren, Fitch
Why not both
need a khabib smashing conor GIF,, of course khabibs offensive , he s always moving forward
Askren, Khabib, Daniel Cormier, Jon Bones, Yoel Romero
No idea what order
Now me? Wow thanks for the support but I'm not quite on that level yet
I was going to post Khabib beating on MJ
Depends on how one defines "offensive grappling".
- Tony and Maia keep looking for subs.
- Khabib and Askren dominate and GnP.
- Conor's grappling is so bad it's offensive.
basically this, but I wouldnt put romero on there. I think he could probably kill just about anyone he mounted, he doesnt use his wrestling offensively that much
Yoel's wrestling is more defensive than offensive, and he tries to mix it up when he's struggling.
I wouldnt even say he's top 10 mma grappler imo.
Dylan...Dylan...DYLAN DYLAN DYLAN!
Rockhold deserves to be included
Not the best offensive takedowns but once he’s got top control you’re done. His GnP is so effective and his sub game is solid.
In MMA.. Ryan Hall, Kron Gracie, Khabib, Neiman Gracie, Askren
In the UFC.. Yahya, Ryan, Kron, Khabib, Askren
Pettis has done well offensively, he’s got a lot of subs from his back against quality opponents. I don’t know if I’d rank him on the top 5 but anyway.
Charles Oliveira is one for sure. Very dangerous guy if he gets a hold of you and he often does!
Werdum at heavyweight.
Demian Maia. Only great fighters have managed to keep the fight standing and I guess only Shields grappled with him and didn’t get tooled. I could be wrong, though. Still one of the GOAT grapplers offensively. So maybe Shields too?
Kron Gracie is a killer, but still an unproven one.
Jacare seems to stand and bang these days, but he’s one of the best. Got outworked by Hermansson, who is no slouch, but you have to look back at what Jacare has done and achieved.
Something like this.
Are GSPs TDs and ground control not considered offensive grappling?
I'd throw Hughes on here too..
