  1. 9:009:10 Did you mean more of, that does DJ try to play a certain way when he fights? Like he wants to out box him or control distance or like beat the opponent where he's strongest. Like Jon Jones wrestling Chael Sonnen to make the point that he's a better wrestler, despite Sonnen's expertise is in wrestling.

  2. Don't see DJ loose in a long time, DJ and Bones might share the #1 spot on P4P and best champs to date in human history as we know it. Bones aint better, dont think DJ is better, they have to share that top spot in my eyes

  3. i honestly think DJ will out wrestle cejudo this fight, look how many TD mighty mouse lands a fight, cejudos wrestling hasnt looked that great he struggled to get chico camus down where i think mighty mouse has much better setups also mighty mouse uses the cage for TD which isnt a factor in normal wrestling, and when cardio kicks in we all know mighty mouse will have more energy as it goes on. I can name fights where all the other olympian wrestlers in ufc got outwrestled so as i said its completely different
