lol the biggest story here isn't even the Griffin staying part. It's every single one of you going who is Nick Lentz lol... Do I feel like Tyson got the shaft, yes, but if you can't put away your opponent whom you're VASTLY better than in the eyes of everyone except Nick Lentz then you deserve to lose.
I think too many guys give in to their desire to win fights via a bunch of takedowns. Then you end up wearin yourself out and grabbing a leg for 60 seconds to catch your breath while eating rabbit punches from your opponent to try to get you to let go. Tyson Griffin is guilty, Gray Maynard, Clay Guida does it, Diego Sanchez has done it before, even Couture does it, and of course Koscheck.
Wrestlers need to start working more on their striking and less on their stalling, or the UFC is going to thin the number of wrestlers out pretty quick. Dana White is very openly disgusted with stall tactics, so much so that you say Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard and he cringes, because he knows what is gonna happen.
Look at Cain Velasquez. He comes from a wrestling background, but is one of the most dynamic strikers in the heavyweight division now. Wrestling might win you fights, but as a lot of people will tell you, in MMA winning isn't everything if you want to be a star.
