Big Ben = Big Tim

watching his fight with cain I have come to the conclusion that he is just like tim Sylvia only more aggressively.

the number one thing I watch in a fighter is the foot work. Maybe I am just biased because trained in a style that is know for its footwork but I feel it is the most important part of the fighters skill set. When I watch mma i see it is what makes the difference between a good fighter and a great fighter and you can decipher a mans style and fighting tendencies based on their foot work.

I had High hopes for Ben but when you watch his foot work it looks like he was walking on stilts. He was very slow to move and he had a very high center of gravity making it easy for Cain to score many takedowns. go watch some takes of Big Tim's later fight and you will see the same thing he has a very high center of gravity and it looks as if he is walking on stilts.

Ben will use his long reach to over come some of the fighters and get some KOs. He may be successful against some of the lower fighters but anytime he go's up against a wrestler like Carwin Cain Randy or Brock the results will be the same as they were last week unless something changes.

maybe an unmotivated and out of shape Tim Silvia, but the Tim Silvia that fought in the ufc could sprawl. Cain made ben look like that guy who wore the boxing gloves in one of the first ufcs, only wanting to strike because he's incompetent on the ground. I thought Ben had some decent TDD and ground skills, but it sure didnt look like that on saturday night.
Is cain that powerful a wrestler or is big ben really that bad?

Cain is a great wrestler but I think something was wrong with Ben that night. He has looked a lot better against strong competition.
