Perfectly said. Many fighters in the UFC are also not very skilled with the legs. Everyone relies on takedowns
But you can see what happens when a good striker who can throw hands,knees and feet can do(A. Silva) This is also makes me think very highly of Brandon Vera. The guy has it all, way better stand-up than most in the UFC not to mention great ground skills. We will see alot less wrestling around when more guys learn the stand-up game a bit better more importantly how to use their legs
