Hum... you realize we are speaking about the same thing here right, OU? Note I could not criticize Weidman for keeping it standing and I didn't
. He did the right thing indeed, as Davis did the right thing against Vinny.
I was just emphasizing his BJJ had nothing to do with his stand up win over the "ADCC" champion in Maia, as claimed.
