Vinny is one of those guys, Maia used to do it (don't know why he doesn't anymore, he'd be alot better IMO), Palhares does it, Werdum can do it.. Paul Sass even uses it as a first option!
As long as Vinny is confident I think he'll do well. I've heard his wrestling and striking have improved a lot which is very good to hear so it's time to see if he can put it all together.
Goran Reljic did it against Gouvia. Man I had such high hopes for Goran. But yah it shows extreme confidence in their ground game. Waiting for Drysdale to make his appearance in the Octagon....
