    Derek Brunson

    He stuffed Romero AND Jacare's TDs with relative ease.

    Jacare only takes down shitty grapplers. Romero has wrestling credentials with the best of them, but never translates it well in MMA cause he gasses too easily

    Not true, he took down Rockhold 5 times when they fought and probably has the best takedowns of any BJJ specialist not named Ricardo Arona.

    Romeros top control is trash but his takedowns are good.

    Not a pure stand-up fighter like Cro Cop but GSP had one of the best jabs in all of MMA. His 2.39 strike differential - strikes landed for every strike absorbed - is the best of any 170-pounder in the UFC, ever.

    I don't think Arlovski is mentioned. He used to have the 2nd highest TDD in mma a few years ago, after Mirko (and above GSP).
    Sambists ususlly do great at TDD, since TDs is the way to score points.
