Frank Shamrock used the same game plan to beat Tito. The problem here was what Shamrock knew was he was smaller and in better shape but he would not be able to match strength with a fresh Tito so he let him take him down and didn`t really try to resist Tito much but rather just tried to avoid damage and allow Tito to wear himself out. I think this is what Mousasi intended but I think he stayed to active on his back and wore himself out in the process.
