Brock Lesnar, even though we were all pretty much certain how the fight would turn out, was still stylistically a nightmare for Overeem. JDS will be business as usual.

Oha! Not quite! Bobby will be happy!

Everyone has figured out it can be 100% defended by bending your knees in the opposite direction. MMA is now back to full on Striking plus clinch work, as it should be.

There was no BJJ or ground fighting in the Diaz vs Cerrone fight. Diaz demolished Cerrone with boxing.
In summary, there was no BJJ in either fight.
I'm not sure if you're trolling or you just didn't watch the event, but your observations seem way off.

I didn't get why Cerrone didnt try getting on Diaz each time he knocked him down, I mean the stand up wasn't working, he may as well tried to score some gnp after each sweep. Also first time I've seen a heavyweight mma fight ended with a body kick.

Oh and too bad we won't get Lesnar vs Mir 3 now. I was somewhat looking forward to that fight.

Lesnar looked like he wanted to throw up as soon as he walked out. Overeem was just trying to help him out.
Also, Cerrone looked flat-footed and tired from the start. This was what, his 5th fight in ten months? Figure a 6-8 week training camp for each, and I start to wonder if he was just overworked coming in. That's pretty much zero time to rest.
