AA's corner is terrible. They never encouraged him to throw the kicks nor did they push for the fight to go to the ground. AA needs to join Team Punishment because those guys know where to fight their fights (i would say Miletich but that would be unlikely).
I think Crocop showed us how devastating leg kicks can be and Sylvia's leg was purple in the middle of the 1st round. As for taking it to the ground, that is a given. ou are a sambo champ he is a guy with no credentials not to mention both times he lost were by submission. Over the course of five rounds he ate a lot more punches than he would have if he went in for the shoot. Sylvia has no balance and it wouldn't be hard to take him down once you got a hold of him.
