If Guida was capable of controlling Pettis, then so is Bendo. He just needs to utilize a more wrestling-orientated gameplan in the rematch.
It's not a disadvantageous position for the fighter on the bottom if the fighter on top is constantly defending sub attempts. The guy on bottom is the one that is attacking and the only one threatening.
