He enjoys plenty of physical advantages at 205. Advantages that too many fans are tripping and falling over themselves for in their attempts to offer gushing praise. Up at heavy everyone of those physical advantages goes away. And i'm dam certain he'd start to look very pedestrian.
The ability to throw a few elbows does NOT constitute Ground and Pound. Certainly not when you think of the fighters that automatically come to mind when discussing GnP.
