He might surprise you.... Everyone thought he'd try to sit on Alves but he did what he needed to do on his feet.

I completely agree.. and that's a very nice attribute to have. My confusion more comes from the individuals who accuse him of lay n pray. He's not the absolute most active guy on the ground.... but in the BJ fight and in the Hardy fight, he definitely working for it.
