    I'm pleased this hasn't degenerated into fighterbashing. Please keep up the good work.

    that's pretty common in fighters with such a strong wrestling base.

    I'm not going to defend Jake's UFC performances, but his grappling is without question among the best at WW.

    I completely agree. You can be a black belt from many displines, but learning 70% BJJ and using 50% shouldn't earn you a black belt.
    I do see a new art were it is the combination of different styles. Example were a BJJ, wrestling, and a striking coaches all at elite level got together and issued a MMA belt. There are no one style fighters doing much good fighting in the UFC. A excellent blend of arts would be GSP to me. I would call him a true Black belt in rounded MMA.

    If you watch Gurgel's early fights, he had a lot of trouble taking people down. He doesn't really have the wrestling to implement his BJJ well, and has made a lot of money getting in wars banging with people.

    As much as i hate to say it -Dan Henderson. Highly touted olympic level wrestling and he gets handled by Anderson, Rampage , Sheilds , and to an extent Shogun. You canmake the gassing weightcut excuses but your grappling needs to be good for all the rounds you commit to fight.
    Thats right bitches, gonna have to bling out the other hand soon...
