Check out the reaction time on this one. For a guy considered "one of the best boxers in MMA", I would expect better reflexes. I like how he drops his hands right when they are about to engage. I think that's the exact technique Freddy Roach teaches.
And BJ off his back....not looking too dangerous here.
If you rank the guy at the top of the grappling ranks in MMA, he should be effective from his back and not only when he's on yours. Sooner or later you're going to be the nail. If you want a lesson on what to do when you find yourself on your back, don't ever watch BJ.
BJ has "world class grappling skills". If that's true what does the Featherweight Frankie Edgar have? Galaxy class grappling skills?
BJ finds himself on his back against the smaller wrestler and ....nothing.
hahaha I like this one. Slew foot.
Again, Frankie Edgar must have Galaxy class stand up.
Looking at these gifs you'd probably think BJ is a mediocre fighter. That's what cherry picking is all about. I thought I'd try to level the scales here on Mania.
