George Sotiropoulos blog - more than one way to win

This sport is MMA – mixed martial arts.

It is a mixed sport and there is more than just one way to win a fight. After all, isn't that why everybody loves the sport? It's unpredictable, unique and offers its competitors various different ways to fight and gain success. Despite all this, some top fighters have recently come under criticism for the manner in which they have utilised one set skill to dominate an overmatched opponent.

Last week at UFC 113 Josh Koscheck made a good point in saying it wasn't his problem that Paul Daley couldn't get up off his back in their UFC 113 match. Koscheck relied on his far superior wrestling and ground game to win a lopsided unanimous decision. Daley's inability to get up off of his back was his problem and issue, not Koscheck's.
