Apparently no submission losses means no sweat when it comes to the ground game, at least in Bonnar's mind. "I respect his ground, but I’m not too worried. I[have] never been submitted. I am a BJJ black belt under Sergio Penha, and was brought up in Jiu Jitsu under the legendary Carlson Gracie. Also, I’ve really improved my takedown defense. The only guys to ever take me down in a fight have been Rashad, Jon Jones, and Mark Coleman….and now I’m even harder to take down ... I’m a gym whore. For these last couple fights I’ve been with Sergio Penhas gym, One Kick Nicks gym, and PSI (Philippi Sports Institute) for strength and conditioning. I’m happy too. I love my coaches and my team. I don’t feel like anythings missing anymore."

Not only has Bonnar never been submitted, he's never been KO'd either

Igors had both

I'm expecting a war for some reason

Did someone lose an AV bet to Fleek?
