This is wrong his base is folkstyle that is what he earned most of his amateur accolades in. The opposite is true of Sonnen who had more success and competed longer in Greco. They just have different philosophies when it comes to takedowns in MMA. Bones believes in the unpredictability of a wide array of takedown techniques and Sonnen believes in mastering the variations of a single technique.
