Re: Are strikers gaining some ground in the UFC?
Well Wanderlei Silva, Chuck Liddel, Mirko Cro Cop, BJ Penn, Rich Franklin, Quinton Jackson, Shogun Rua, GSP, Eddie Alvarez, Jens Pulver, Forrest Griffin all won belts with a mix of grappling, TDD and striking ''back in the day''...not exactly a new phenomenon
Bendo's rematch with Frankie was the only one I can recall where he didnt try to get it to the mat and Machida and Anderson started their careers years ago. Plus only Gonzaga and Carwin have even attempted to take down JDS
If you'd made this thread when Tito was Champ and Lindland was still fighting you may have a point
