1. Walt Harris' daughter is missing around Auburn, Alabama. Please read this thread for more information.

Why didn't Kron attempt a single or double leg?

    Isn't it a fairly low risk high reward thing if he just feints first? It takes great timing to counter. It's harder for the striker to counter than for the grappler to pull off.

    Why on earth does he not even try it??

    This was his first big name fight. I imagine he didnt do most of the shit he planned on.

    most sherbros answer will be because “bjj is gay lol no wrestling”

    Probably because Swanson was busy picking him apart in the first round while using a ton of movement. Getting peppered like that tends to change the gameplan up.

    Swanson was picking him apart easy since Krons only takedown attemps were shitty pull guards.

    Why didn't Andre Soukhamthath just stand up? Inexperienced fighters lack fight IQ.

    They have single and double legs in BJJ competitions. It's not like he doesn't know it.

    All respect to Kron, it doesn't look like he's had a striking match in his life. The only thing he was good at that fight was taking punishment.

    because he goes for clinch takedowns (which he did attempt a few times). If you are getting body work from the start clearly that will effect you. I shouldn't have to explain this to you, u ever been in a fight buddeh?

    I mean,

    The days of pure BJJ are long gone and have been for over a decade. Unless you have a way to reliably get the fight to the ground, BJJ isn't going to help you much against a complete MMA fighter like Swanson.

    You saw an Olympic wrestler getting subbed in 20 seconds by a submission wrestler, and a jiuijtsu guy down there would have been the exact same outcome

    He was labelled as jiujitsu and boxing fighter. Doesn't looked like he took a day of boxing in his life
