I'll tell you who doesn't

I would say either GSP or BJ given he was facing anyone other than GSP.

JDS also put a lot of people on notice last night with his amazing TDD.

Pound-for-pound, I'd say GSP.

The first people that come to mind are Penn and Liddell. I may be wrong, but when I think about TDD, I envision Penn defending with one leg, hopping around the Octagon.

What about Rampage? He doesn't get taken down too often.

GSP right now. I wanna see JDS vs. a good wrestler like Carwin, Cain or Brock before I can compare his TDD with GSP's. Truth is JDS has displayed insane takedown defense, but GSP has outwrestled guys like Kos, Hughes and Fitch which you can pretty much compare the above mentioned HW trio when it comes to wrestling.

Definitely BJ. GSP just has incredible TDOffense which blasted through his TDD, his size also definitely helped as well. GSP has some really amazing TDD as well but the only reason I'd say BJ's is better is because we get to see it a lot more. Realistically, GSP's TDD is the fact that he's already got everyone on their back. In which case it's impossible to take him down lol.

That being said, we're about to have a new king on the block. My man James Tony is gonna come in here and show us all how it's done! He's gonna show that old man Randy how to wrestle with his 9 months of invaluable experience. What's that old man got? Like, 40 years of experience? That's nothing. Toney's gonna shoot from one side of the octagon straight to the other, blasting through Randy at the same time. He'll be on top and show his dominance in the wrestling department for the entire first round. Second round, maybe (if he'd be willing to give us this honor), he'd go ahead and pull guard. Give us all a little taste of what a 'gold belt' in jiu-jitsu can really do. I wouldn't be surprised if he got Eddie Bravo and Dave Camarillo both in triangles SIMULTANEOUSLY. He'll just play with that old man for the next 2 rounds. Shortly after that he's gonna blow of the dust off his hands and get his first knockout in 6 years. He's been saving his energy in all his previous fights for this moment, obviously. James Tony, by complete, utter dominance.

P4P I'd have to say BJ... As someone mentioned earlier when I think of BJ and his TDD I envision him with one leg trapped by his opponent, jumping around on the other leg, keeping the takedown at bay and beating the opponents face... All at once, quite hilarious and hugely impressive... He is just so hard to get down

GSP is up there as well, though maybe harder to take down than BJ he isn't as entertaining in avoiding the TD :P
