Joslin did more from his back then Kos did in his guard...
Sure his position was better for most of the fight, but Joslin did more to try and finish then KOS including sweeps, triangle and armbar attempts and strikes from the bottom.
Kos won that fight because he was on top for most of the time, but didnt/couldnt really do ANYTHING because Joslin was active in nullifying any of his attempts...so the basic question is: do you win a fight by being on top of a guy? i dont think so, i think more focus needs to be on who is really being more EFFECTIVE in the position they are in.
Sure, Kos was on top of Joslin, but what thell does that mean? Some fighters like to be on their backs...Joslin did more to finish the fight and prevent kos from winning then kos did anything really.
On the feet, Joslin clearly dominated...im not saying he won the fight, but imo it wasnt as unanimous as the judges and others thought.
