Are you kidding me, yeah, 16 wins by submission and only being subbed once by NOG = brutal ground game.

And like someone has already mentioned he has a stellar defensive ground game.

Open your eyes.

The only reason i can think people MAY say Heath has a bad ground game is because Congo kinda sat on him for a while. I think he is average at worst to above average defensivly.

Chuck.

Awesome at using wrestling and the cage to bounce back up...but is that really a ground game?

(I just wanted to throw someone else out aside from Houston )

Demian Maia may be the Fred Astaire of jiu-jitsu, but it’s too bad Silva is the Gene Kelly of kicking everyone’s ass.

I'm sorry but recently I haven't seen any good offensive ground game by Haeth. I know in the past he has submitted a bunch of opponents, but against the more talented fighters, I haven't seen it. (Except maybe for Tanner.)

It was scary how quickly the name Houston Alexander popped into my head when I saw the words "worst ground game."

It hurts to watch. Paul Daley, Drew McFedries, and Houston Alexander should tap the moment their feet leave the ground, mid-air before ass hits mat if possible.

A groan of tedium escapes me...

taken down does not mean he has a bad ground game imo
