the question is not weather they are good gettin up once they are taken down, or their ability to finish fight for the bottom, the questions is who has the best take down DEFENCE, their ability to avoid being taken down, therefore i belive GSP and Bj penn dont apply to this question.......
i would have to go with Mirko cro cop, has an amazing sprawl, and chuck liddell....another guy that comes to mind is heath herring haha j/k
GSP and BJ Penn don't apply to this question? Have you ever seen them fight? BJ has excelent tdd, mabey not good enough to be in a conversation about the best but he isn't far off. As for GSP, when is the last time anyone has taken him down? Sherk couldn't do it, not BJ, not Trigg. The list goes on and on. Hughes took him down in there first fight but it wasn't easy. In there second fight Georges had one of the best takedown stuffs I've ever seen. GSP is not only in this conversation, he's quite possibly at the top of the list. It's hard to say for sure who is the very best, but he is for sure top 3. His biggest test of tdd should come tomorow night against Kos, so we may find out for sure. But even if Kos can score a take down, that doesn't really mean to much, just because Kos is considered to have some of the best take downs in MMA. If he can take him down at will, then thats another story. But believe me GSP and BJ apply to this question
