Okay first of all, no mma fighter that fights in the UFC sucks.
Second of all, Carwin took Dos Santos down. Whether or not he was effective in holding him down is another thing but the man took Dos Santos DOWN! For awhile I was beginning to think that it was impossible. His Takedown defense is almost inhuman. He's like a Bigger, faster, stronger, and much more technically amazing version of Chuck Liddell so Carwins wrestling DOES NOT suck.
Third of all, I'm generally considered a tough person among my peers and despite the fact i was stoned watching the fight last night,even the site of watching Dos Santos at work put chills down my spine. Watching Dos Santos hands go and knowing youre going to HAVE to stand with him is about as scary as trying to wrestle with a silverback gorilla. Carwin took a BEATING yet still kept coming forward. Dos Santos' level in boxing unfortunately for Carwin is literally world class. The Technical ability that I saw from Dos Santos is good enough to compete with legit hw pro boxers.
With all that being said, Carwin becomes only the second man to make it 3 rounds with Dos Santos in the UFC. He's a great fighter just not as great as Dos Santos.
Dos Santos vs Velasquez will truly determine the number one guy in the UFC. Overeem, who will surely win the strikeforce grand prix, NEEDS to come over and determine who is the best in the world.
