Nah, Kang barely wants to be Canadian, dude lives in Florida most of his time, and says he's gonna move back to Korea when he's done fighting.

And I don't think Damone is downplaying Mousasi's improvement, per se, I just think he's trying to say it wasn't that big a feat considering Kang pretty much knelt down between Gegard guard and wrapped his legs around his head.

I'm not downplaying anything, I'm just saying that a BJJ blackbelt shouldn't be a freakin' dipshit and let someone who's known as a striker slap on a slow triangle. It's like when Yves just let Mark Hominick slap on a slow triangle, only that was worse than this.

And yes, I'm aware than Yves Edwards isn't a BJJ blackbelt.

First of all, I think you're both exaggerating how slow the triangle was. It only took Gegard about 3 seconds to lock the triangle around Kang's neck (in order to close off his escape and control his posture), and it only took him around 8-9 to submit him. If you don't believe me, here's the .gif with a timer:



Denis had only 3 seconds to avoid the triangle, because once Mousasi had his arm, the triangle was virtually already locked-in. Sure, he should have seen it coming, but with Mousasi not being notorious for subbing people off his back, I wouldn't be surprised if Denis was completely caught off-guard. Not that that's an excuse, seeing as he's a black-belt in BJJ, but the triangle wasn't nearly as slow as Hominick/Edwards.

Mousasi's skillset is improving, this is really undeniable.
