Bas really picked up shit fast. When he got subbed, he learned the sub game, and he got very good at it. His striking, of course, is legendary, as Bas was very precise and focused on body movements. He came in and steamrolled fools, but a pro-wrestler, Ken Shamrock, owned him...twice. However, I think Bas would've steamrolled through Ken if they fought around 1998. But, Kenny did his WWF shit.
Frank Shamrock is just a naturally talented guy. A guy who can still hang, and a guy who has adapted his skills to fit the current mold of fighting.
I don't know, these guys like GSP are just really, really athletic and people who seem to pick up things at a quick pace. Basically, they've seen the past, tried to use some of it, and then focused on all aspects.
I mean, just look at Royce vs Hughes & Hughes vs GSP 2. But, then again, Serra whomped GSP. However, that's a learning experience for him.
