So when Condit gets out wrestled all night by GSP, can I say look at these generic scrapers coming to the UFC thinking they can wrestle too?
And college boy wrestlers? That is talking about a boatload of Elite fighters. You can hate them all you want but they aren't going anywhere.
You just prefer strikers. It is painfully obvious.

No, there are plenty of wrestlers I have admiration for. I'm a Cain Velasquez fan, when that guy wrestles, he also ****s you up on the ground. Jon Jones, Daniel Cormier, Randy Couture back in the day, Tito Ortiz, Benson Henderson, Dan Henderson.... I could go on. I'm a fan of all of those guys, and they are all wrestlers. The difference is they have character, flair, they all have their own unique traits which make them stand out as an MMA fighter.
Jon Jones with his sick trips and vicious elbows. Velasquez with his relentless, ruthless ground and pound, Ortiz with his elbows and GNP from the guard position, Randy's legendary clinch work and dirty boxing. They all have character, they all have flair.
I'm just sick to death of these faceless, bland wrestle-boxers jumping straight from college because MMA is the cool thing to do for youngsters thinking they're going to be champion some day. They have nothing that makes them stand out, nothing for me to root for, they're boring, generic and seem to be over populating the UFC roster. I'm just tired of them.
