...Monson is all about grappling 101. He gets you down, it's only a matter of time. He's a powerful, compact dude but his stand up needs work. I'm up for seeing him compete in Strikeforce and choking some dudes to sleep. Strikeforce should offer him a deal...
Location: See that guy over in the window, with the binoculars?
I think like Ricco Rodriguez its the fact they are both working towards dropping to LHW which leaves them in a weird void were they have yet to prove they can make the cut and still fight effectively. I think if either guy picks up a win at 205 and looks good they will have SF or the UFC banging on there door.
I would like to add Monson's striking isn't that bad, its rudimentary but it works as long as he isn't fighting tall fighters (with his height tall fighters are his kryptonite). He did drop Barnette in there fight and its not like Josh hasn't fought some great guys.
