    Please point out a moment where he shows the contrary and maybe I'll care. He has size. You can be as tired as you want about it...he's not a technical fighter.

    Edit:

    And if he was such a technical fighter...how did he end up in a kneebar which AN AVID FAN COULD HAVE SEEN COMING. (Much less a fighter).

    Because not complete != not technical. He is very technical in parts of his game, but her doesn't have a total game yet. Characterizing his top game as "just laying on the guy" is a load. He was active, mobile and technical in his top control.

    GnP aside, he's still a collegiate wrestling champ. I'm not a great wrestler, so maybe someone can answer this better than me, but I assume his wresting is technically sound. I suppose it's possible that he became wrestling champ in the same way he became UFC champ (just being big and strong), but I find this harder to believe in collegiate wrestling.

    Strength and size wouldn't factor into wrestling?? I must be losing touch with reality.

    When I used the word "just," it's meant to be taken as a qualifier. Suitable replacements would include "only," "solely," and "nothing but."

    The last heavyweight champ in boxing was a 7 ft. giant, but got beat by a (relatively) little British guy. I've seen little guys outwrestle bigger guys too.

    yes, because they were the better technical fighter (in most cases)

    So if a little guy wins, it's just because of technique and skill, and if a big guy wins it's just because of size and strength? The fighting world isn't as black and white as you imply it is.

    Look, I'm not going to apologize for not agreeing with you guys. I don't see it. It's my opinion that he's not a technical fighter...just from what I've seen.
