Yeah fair enough, it wasn't a destruction but Josh was looking good, he had him rocked a couple of times. I just thought it was going to be a matter of time.

But thats where i think he got caught for not mixing it up.

In this fight i feel he had the right gameplan he just got caught.

I agree.

I think it was smart to concentrate standup in training camp. Kos can out wrestle most guys even when not fine tuning his wrestling. I don't think that played any part in this fight. It's not like he got taken down and subbed. I'm sure if he ever fights GSP again he will work his wrestling a ton.

So, in this case, I don't think it mattered that he didn't go to his "strength" of wrestling. Why even mess around on the ground with a good BJJ guy when you can knock him out? Of course Kos got caught, but it was the right game plan.
