That's exactly what I'm saying, look at those opponents:
- wrecking machines with little restraint: alexander, silva
- techincal fighters: griffin, liddell, vera
though rampage is turning himself into a much more complete and well-rounded fighter since his overly-agressive pride days, I'd still put him in the wrecking machine category which equals trouvle for jardine. Anyone familiar with the "crazy monkey" defense he uses, its great against aggressive strikers? I love it, and it DIRECTLY led to him dispatching Wand. Here's an example of him using it in Pride:
Except in the UFC he followed it up with a left hook and put Wand out.
