Thats the other claim to domination. They sent their gimp and he did good.

    you'd also have to compare the guys royce fought to the guys fry fought

    That kind of claim needs to be backed up.

    And to think I almost respected you for having a Kikuchiyo avatar.

    I still dont understand why sherdog lists a particular "style" for some MMA fighters. I thought the style they all do is MMA. The difference is just the strategy they choose when fighting.

    Usually a fighter still has a primary style. For example a wrestler who cross trains in muay thai.

    Ya - at this point, I'm getting sick of hearing: "So-and-so is a fighter with good hands and submission skills.... Ya, he's got some grappling experience and has also worked on striking."

    REALLY?! - you mean he's cross-training? Then why give him a "style" field? I think it would be useful to hear something like, "Though primarily known as a grappler, so-and-so has spent the last 3 months at X-and-Y's boxing academy..."

    If they're going to remind me about the cross-training before every fight, maybe they should tell me what they've been working on *lately*.

    I guess. Personally, I think it's just a relic left over from the style vs. style days.
