Mixed martial arts. Not boxing. Mixed martial arts sometimes involves grappling contests. Insane concept, I know, but...

Yes yes. His control is flawless you expect that from a legit black belt but he used to sub guys with his eyes closed. Herman has basically gift wrapped an arm Triangle for him there and he hasn't taken it!

Not really. First off all he was tired and they were sweaty and he wasn't going to go for any subs that would take him out of position and give Herman a chance to get back to his feet.

The only thing he really could've gone for is an Ezekiel choke and not many guys are going to get caught with that.

It wasn't a horrid fight but on a night were none of the fights have been real barnburners the mood is dead, this card lacks any real excitement thus far and honestly the last two fights should be great but I am not sure they can revive fans mood. A fight that is anticipated when it has excitement leading up to it is something truly great. Herman/Shields lacked excitement because it was clear how it was gonna go, Shields was always in control.

He just used to be more aggressive with his subs. If an arm Triangle or a scissor choke is there he should go for it! He is an ADCC medalist after all surely he has some confidence in his subs!
