The sport isn't called kickboxing it's called mixed martial arts for a reason. "Fans" that get upset and boo like most of that arena did last night everytime a wrestler actually uses wrestling techniques and takes some body to the ground and wrestles them because that is his specialty is ridiculous. Yes standup game haymaker bloodbaths are much more entertaining than watching ground game but that's not the sport. Silva is one of the best strikers ever, even on 3 days notice the last thing Cormier would ever want to do is kickbox him for 3 rounds as we saw he started getting tagged in the 3rd. The exact same thing applies had he fought Jones. Trying to kickbox him for 5 rounds would be suicide. Same goes for Brock. Hunt has some of if not the heaviest hands in the UFC. Brock standing with him for 3 rounds would be suicide.
