No matter how good guys are at striking, even at Andersons level, if you have no wrestling at all it is a huge hole in your game. Andersons clowning was him encouraging Weidman to kick box with him and avoid the ground at all costs.
The strangest thing about the fight is that Anderson never even landed a glove on Weidman.
I agree about the Jones statement. Also with Weidman, he did look really gassed which is even weirder to me why Anderson just didn't go for the kill when weidman was just basically sleeping on him in the clinch. Just a weird fight all around , thank god I didn't spend flight, hotel and ticket money to see it.
Anderson did land a right jab on him though, that was it I think.
