A. Silva: TTD
sonnen: Sub defense
sherk: Reach
sheilds: striking
Machida: Leg kicks
BJ penn: work ethic
Kos: striking
i would not say carwin has a bad gas tank yet any HW fighter that threw that may punches in that amount of time would be gassed. I would say he is impatient and doest pack his punches like he should.

Silva has pretty good TDD actually. Sonnen takes everyone down. And also he was probably hurt.

Shields has bad sub defence? how do you figure that...hes never ben subbed and is actually a submission specialist :S did you mean Sonnen?

I did mean Sonnen, you are 100% correct. Not sure how I screwed that one up.

Silva actually does have pretty bad TDD. Blame it on his unwillingness to change his stand up stance or style, but he leaves himself open. I'm not just saying because of the Sonnen fight, I have said it about him for a while. Granted this is the third time in the UFC he has proven why he doesn't mind the ground as he won by sub again. I think he just doesn't care. To get him down you have to come within his striking range, and if you get him to the ground his lanky limbs make him just as dangerous standing up.

Rampage... checking kicks and obvious wrestling deficiencys and he trained wrestling so that is kinda weird.

I honestly think you're right on this... I just don't think he cares if you take him down. He seems to be comfortable in either position.

JDS hasn't really been tested BJJ wise in the UFC, not enough info to speak on that.

Rashad has only been KO'd once, kinda hard to say he has a weak chin.

but then again he dropped Mir, Coture and Herring and those guys arent known for their stand up if anything their striking is C+ class at best.

Ditto. He wins with his size, strength and top level wrestling. No Jiu Jistu, and horrible stand up.
