That's not everyday news, indeed, but surprise is a factor that eventually pays off when a striker do the unthinkable against a wrestler, like JDS taking Carwin down or Machida taking Tito down.

To a wrestler to forseen to be taken down by a striker would be the same as a striker to forseen a wrestler going for a spinning back fist, aside Anderson's clairevoyance, of course.
