Well we have Jon Jones and Khabib, the best grapplers in MMA history
Cejudo as well
Most takedowns in UFC history
Most guard passed in UFC history
and flat earthers
Also a way higher takedown accuracy (74% to 46.5%) than Jones while simultaneously landing way more takedowns per 15 mins as well (4.16 to 1.90).
Not that Jones isn't a phenomenal wrestler, but if you mention Khabib and Jones you gotta mention St-Pierre as well.
Jones only needs to pass your guard once. He'll then either submit you or brutalize you with vicious GnP
This stats actually speaks about GSP inability to finish fights on the ground.
He may be the best "wrestler" but definetly not the best grappler, and by a large margin
they have the same number of submission wins.
+ I didn't knew that elbowing fckrs in the face makes you a great grappler....
GSP > all the betas you mentioned
Ground and Pound is part of grappling, Jones is the best at it, along with Khabib
Has GSP ever submitted anyone in his title defenses? I remember the Dan Hardy fiasco
Jones' grappling is way more effective
You've also got guys like Ryan Hall that no one wants to fight because they just make you look like a newb.
If ground and pound is part of grappling,
GSP is also #1 in UFC history in strikes landed....
Where do you think thoses strikes came from?
Stop it, get some help.
That was freaking dope -- not the biggest fan of international wrestling rule sets for down wrestling but they have their moments. I'd love to see more high level wrestlers in MMA.
And how many ground and pound finishes does GSP have ?
Finishes > Meaningless strikes that are akin to point fighting
This is the truth
Even Khabib already has more submissions than GSP in title defenses
Gsp is the goat.
GSP is nowhere near the best at ground and pound. He's just good at doing enough work to be active and keep the fight from being stood up.
A-Level like Askren?
