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.
Damn. That's crazy. Good post.
