Yeah, LMD, Kos's takedowns are actually phenomenal. Something you are confusing as well, is the method of takedown a wrestler like Kos would use and a throw that Judo technician like Karo would use; completely different dude.

Drew Fickett caught Kos with a head kick then scrambled to RNC in the last minute of their fight. Kos would have won by cuddling, otherwise.
There is no doubt that Kos has phenomenal takedowns. It seems like in all of his fights, I've never seen him get stuffed. Guys sprawl, but he just keeps driving, or changes his momentum and finishes them.
After what happened to Riggs, I don't see Kos risking the standup too much. After what happened to Riggs, I also see Diego throwing those knees with abandon, with disregard for the fact that Kos may have a knee already on the canvas. I bet he'd take the risk of a point deduction for the advantage (psych and physical) that he would get from this. Seems like Kos always goes for singles and doubles, so he will be open to knees from an ethically indifferent Diego.
I don't care who wins, but I'm looking forward to the fight of the night.

I expect kos to take diego down and im sure he does too, but what is josh going to do from there, he'll get subbed or it'll get stood up. Diego althought not well liked has an insane mind body connection with a will to be the best fighter, a positive competitive nature. Josh is a ego driven punk and those types will always lose bc they do not have true power just natural athletic ability. The only fight i hope i right about.

Again I think anyone who can go with Karo P. on the ground and come out the victor is a pretty damn good grappler.

LMD, to be fair to Kos (who I don't like),he has finished 4 in his last 6 wins (3 in the 1st). I think he's good enough to finish okay fighters, but definitely not good enough to finish Diego. Joslin was like Houdini from the guard, avoiding everything. Impressive defense.
Rogue's a no show, pulling a Tito on us for this one after two wins. That makes you a paper champ in my book.

I wish I had some witty comment, or in-depth analysis, but I can honestly say I am completely disillusioned right now.

I was hoping GSP would be the champ for some time. He handles himself with such honor and class. He never talks smack. He even takes a loss with such class. He is a stand up guy who is very good for the sport. I think he will come back even stronger. What a shocker
