You are aware he dropped Alves and had two very tight submissions on Dan Hardy right?
Outside of that he hasn't fought any striker's. He demolished Fitch standing, he pummeled BJ on the ground, he destroyed Koscheck's eye, and the only bad fight he's had was against Jake Shields which was a stand up affair where he got poked in the eye a million times.
