Is Randy really that great of a gameplanner?

We keep hearing how Randy is the most intelligent fighter and best gameplanner in MMA. How he beats people he shouldn't be beating because he finds the exact weaknesses in their game and exposes them like no other. I'm asking the question .. Really?

What has Randy done to actually deserve this reputation as a master gameplanner? I mean from the beginning of his career, he's had the exact same gameplan for everyone he's ever faced, what's so amazing about that? He just controls guys against the octagon, wears them out with dirty boxing/clinch work, and outworks them for the takedowns, breaking their wills. Now this is an exceptional strategy against dangerous strikers with mediocre wrestling like Belfort, Sylvia, Gonzaga, Rizzo and Liddell in the first match. It also works well against wrestlers who he outclasses, outworks or overpowers, like Ortiz and Randelman. However, it never has and never will work against better, stronger and bigger wrestlers, it's obvious to see, and Randy has gotten worked every time against such fighters using the same gameplan as always. So where's this mythical gameplanning? What has Randy ever changed or innovated that's so revolutionary.. if he really had smart gameplanning, he would've picked up some serious BJJ or submission game by now, because that is the only way he could easily beat guys like Lesnar. That is a massive hole in his game.

IMO Fedor is the ultimate gameplanner because he is a complete mixed martial artist. He knows that he can easily sub guys like Hong Man Choi and Hunt instead of trying to outwrestle/outstrike them, and that's what gameplanning is all about. Opinions?

It was working perfectly imo. Randy looked the fresher fighter in round 2.

Lucky for Lesnar he landed that big shot sooner rather than later.

I agree about Couture

The little Fedor hug right at the end was funny

Uh, I thought Randy was doing fine against Brock until he ate a shot. You can't enact a gameplan when you are unconcious.
