I love the ground game and I totally understand it but with jake- Good TDs- good Jitz and miller good standup and good jitz and apparently not good TD defense (he kept leaving his leg out there for singles) didnt add up to the fight I was hoping for. I think Jake should have tried less for subs and went for some GnP. But thats the way it goes. He didnt seem to want to take any chances and just win by better positioning.Even for alot of the hardcore fans it was a littlehard to watch. the only thing that kept me watching was the hope that Mayhem would KO him the few times he stoodup.

Boring as that match was, Jake did try a couple of submissions, it's just that he couldn't make any of them stick. His bread and butter is wrestling and BJJ and being that he couldn't sub Miller he tried(and successfully) controlled him. Can't blame him for sticking to what he knows, but he won't get any fans if he doesn't take more chances(like trying GNP) or evolving into a complete fighter(working hardcore on standup)

Yeah the last bout wasnt the greatest.. Kind of figured they would cancel each other out and the wrestling would control. Other then that Jakes a stud.. Hes not ufc champ material yet but hes getting up there . Hes won his last 13 straight! Over kats like Carlos Condit ,Robbie Lawlar , Josh THompson ,dailey , pyle , Okami he has beaten some decent comp.. Yeah dec can be boring and he has quite a few in his past but not counting the miller bout his last 9 havent made it past the 2nd 7 of which didnt out of the first all from subs and one tko.. So in all Im saying FRANK IS SCARED...
