I was a wrestler for a number of years. Takedowns are more physics than anything. They aren't like lifting a person... the aggressor is applying his weight at weaker joints.

All of Cain's TD's affected the knees of Ben, and none of them were "hard" takedowns, ala GSP or Hughes, add strength and power behind the TD. Cain would apply a "simple" takedown and follow up with shots.

Thanks for backing up your argument with facts Like I said on my post, I didnt know you, so of course there was the possibility you wrestled before...

The weight does play into the sport though, right? I mean, there wouldnt be weight classes in the sport if it didn't. Along with the strength? Both of which Rothwell had a significant advantage in. I am aware that Rothwell is way MORE of a striker then a wrestler, but going into the fight, you gotta think he spent some of his training in wrestling since he knew who he was fighting. Add the fact that this wasn't his first fight, so, of course he doesnt have that wrestling pedigree as does Cain, but he wasn't unprepared either.

Just my opinion though. I would say yours holds more "weight" since you participated in the sport, unlike me.
