He was actively working to advance position there too. You'd have to be a complete fucking moron to think any of that shit is LnP.
Just curious, define LnP. Seems like not standing and trading = LnP to you. Go watch boxing, you've got a good mudhutter boxer at least.
Here is my definition. When a fighter takes down his opponent, then he makes it look as if he is punching or trying to submit the said opponent but in reality just trying to pass time and not really doing any damage because at the end of that round he would have won by just being on top.
Prime Matt Hughes, prime Tito, Couture. These guys try to end the fight at the ground while modern day fighters cept for Carwin are looking more and more like snuggies.
Edit: That's why I hate the once a month ppv format, not much anticipation. But that's just me, I would like it to be once every 3 or 5 months.
