Agreed. This isn't a BJJ tournament, there is no reason Overeem should be expected to go to the ground with Werdum if Werdum can't get it there. This is MMA; it starts in the standing position. If you can't get a fight to the ground without pulling that bullshit gtfo. If Werdum can get it there and keep it there then more power to him. Pulling guard every single time you get hit is bullshit.

Overeem landed a far better percentage of punches and kicks and way, way more power strikes. That would be one of the worst decisions ever if Werdum took it.
