    didn't know he likes to get that close to his opponent... i thought he just runs around and avoid.

    Doesn't show much. Just him in guard and a few takedowns.

    lyoto and anderson both have underated bjj because they barely use it. Its there plan b stuff. Their main goal is to stand and trade so they rarely use it but its there.

    .

    Just because they don't exclusively focus on their BJJ as their primary way of winning fights does not mean they don't have skills on the ground.

    There striking is top notch by both those fighters that you mentioned. However it does become a problem when people like Gurgel who have meh standup go out and try and box, rather than focusing on their strengths like BJJ.
