Re: Are strikers gaining some ground in the UFC?
Well, I think so yeah.
The top contender at 155 is an great striker as well.
So is the interim champ at 170.
The bantamweight champ is more noted as a stand-up guy than anything else, so as the interim champ.
As they say, all fight starts at a stand-up. Especially against Machida, if you can't control distance, you're grappling would mean shit.
