Murilo "Ninja" Rua's Ground Game.
Anyone else think Ninja's ground game is seriously underrated? He has a good guard, can get out of bad positions really well, constantly goes for subs and a solid top game. While Shogun just loves to pound the hell out of guys, Ninja likes to sub them. Both guys have very good ground games, both guys use them a tad differently.
Ninja really should just use his striking to set-up takedowns, because to be honest, his striking is sloppy. His ground game, however, is smooth stuff. There was one point where I thought that he'd be using his ground game more, like in the Otsuka fight, where he tooled him on the ground, but nowadays, man, I don't know.
So yeah, anyone else feel that his ground game is underrated, and that he'd be way more successful if he uses it more? Dude has some swank leg-locks.
