GSP's takedowns are top notch. Don't be fooled because he is so well rounded...Who else has been able to literally throw BJ penn down to the matt?

Matt hughes couldn't...


Kos is lookin really good at those; but it's hard to say. I wouldn't be surprised if GSP's were more powerful. and for the record, I would love for GSP to fight kos now.

St. Pierre would spank him, Koscheck is no where near the level of St. Pierre yet.

Although I would love to see how St. Pierre does defending those takedowns, he was a beast against Hughes.

I went with Koscheck.

The guy is a top notch, world class wrestler, and he has no trouble taking people down. He took Joslin down with ease, took Fickett down(Until the knee) with ease, took Leben down with ease, and took Diego down. Yea, I know taking Leben down isn't a huge deal, but Koscheck takes people down with such ferocity. It's scary to think the guy only has about 2 years experience in MMA. Koscheck's A+ wrestling helps him out a lot, and he makes sure to show people he is a top class wrestler.

I voted with Sean Sherk. Sherk has a wider range of take down abilities. Also for size vs takedown he is able to lift and deal with getting people that are bigger than him to the ground. Although he often uses the same takedown, I've seen him use a lot of different ones that some of the others have not. I think he sets himself up better for the takedowns and uses lead off combos to set himself up for the clinches rather than bull rushing his opponent (for the most part...I have seen him bull rush a few people).


Evens takedowns are more like watching an arm wrestling match.


Kos has "A" good takedown and that's it. He can't set himself up for them and when he gets them they are all done either by his opponent forcing a clinch or he performs a bull rush. He has steller speed and strength but lacks experience.

Hughes has a good takekdowns but that's not really his forte any more. I think he works better now once he's on the ground. I think he's actually become insecure with his ability to get to the clinch for the takedown after watching his fights with BJ and GSP.

I liked the fact that GSP was the only fighter that could throw Penn around the cage. Sean Serk is up there as well.
