I do not want to see Tommy anymore. I would rather see Ben fight again even though he lost. Take downs are easy. You should not get points for a atakedown ffs.
While I wouldn't say that I hate wrestlers, I completely agree with your stance about them. I've always thought that wrestlers are the best building blocks for a complete fighter, but with the explosion of MMA and especially the GNP, I don't think wrestlers are taking full advantage of their background. It doesn't seem as if they're willing to learn all aspects of the ground game, just get the takedown, throw some hammers and elbows and hope for a dazzling TKO.
