I think that will be the BJJ style of the future and may eventually even catch up to wrestling.
Look at how GSP didn't want to really wrestle with Shields. I think it was safe to say BJJ neutralized wrestling in that fight.
I'd add in Soti with his rubber guard as well. Oliviera is SICK...with his chain combos. He doesn't wait...he goes right into as soon as it hits the ground which makes him pretty deadly.
Pettis vs Guida showed that Pettis is indeed a top five'er. Guida didn't win it decisively in my opinion. Simply utilized his strength to control the position...man that's annoying.
Come to think of it, at least Brock (wrestler) does finish although his striking is atrocious and the same with JBJ which much more proficient striking.
Boo to Yawn Fitch, Lay Praynard, Guido, and anybody else who approaches the game as they do.
*GSP* Still puts on exciting fights even though he doesn't finish...simply because of the wide of array of techniques he uses. Even he should opt to finish in order to seal his legacy.
