    He has been proven that he doesnt enforce his power. When Anderson just stood back and told Lutter to stand up and Herb just let Lutter lay there for 15 seconds, I was getting royally pissed.

    I'm still not entirly sure that I agree with making the BJJ guy on the ground stand up.

    The point of standing them us is because they aren't engaging their opponent right?

    Well if its a striker standing up against a BJJ guy, isn't it the striker that isn't engaging?

    Anderson was standing 10 feet back and giving him the symbol to stand them up. If I remeber correctly, Herb even told Lutter to stand up at one point and he just laid there

    I'm guessing b/c it's the "BJJ" guys job to keep the guy on the ground if he want's to fight him there. If he can't keep him down then he needs to stand up and engage his opponet so he can get him back down.

    The fight starts standing up for both people. Also, a good fighter favors no range.
