fedor would just standup and punch? hes shown that he had good takedown defense before, from the very few stuff ive seen on rickson, his takedowns are not godlike... but again, ive seen very few fights of rickson in mma.. but anyways, fedor has good defense on the ground, and im not sure if we are talking about rickson now or a few years ago, cuz rickson is like 50 now..

this might be a little bit off topic, but why is rickson such a legend in mma( not talking about grappling/bjj)? I have much respect for what the gracies have done, but i think ppl should be realistic a bit... every fighter knows bjj now, and the best fighters right now have incorporated(or adopted) bjj in their fighting style...bjj is not so good anymore by itself, and even nogueira, whos grappling is probably the best in mma right now, figured that out(he trains boxing)
