It was a throw straight into a triangle, not set up really at all. In that sense if we count the takedown as the "wrestling" component and the triangle as the BJJ component Maia was better than both.

It show's nothing about who has a better base for MMA.

The basic which is more effective in MMA, you need both of them. But can get away with being a good wrestler with sub defense more than a world class BJJ guy with poor takedowns.
