It was an awful game plan, admittedly.
He is constantly attacking from his back. That's why I think he ground game is comparable to Condit's.
On top he is a beast when it comes to GnP. He really knows how to put power into his shots.
I don't disagree with this at all. But i'll remain a skeptic until i see him develop a TDD. And for as long in the tooth he is he should have had that on lock by now.
