I'll admit Belcher had a role in creating those boring TD hugfests with his pulling guard and going for subs he should have known he couldn't complete.
Even at that, he barely won the ground striking. He has AMAZING control but he needs to do something with it to earn the moniker of "Beast." It's very impressive he can control guys like that, but until he starts slinging leather, throwing elbows or at least LOOKING for submissions I think he's going to have to take the Fitch route to the title... again. Meaning it won't happen.
EDIT: Yes, I realize "OMFG JON IS A HUMAN BLANKET LOLZ" is going to come out of this. It's not true though. Jon is constant pressure when he's on top. Even if they aren't hard shots, there's a shitload of them.
