    This is why wrestlers are just better. As good as Moraga is, he couldn’t stop one takedown, 12 for 12. DJ is just getting better, I think Moraga will be back in a thin division. Nice transition armbar. I would have preferred a gnp.

        FAIL…so what is your point?? Looks like you FAILED 2X…

          Actually,research his wrestling and get the real story about his and Jakes supposed all American stats. There great wrestlers and all American but maybe not what the UFC makes them out to be.

        • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

          I understand Moraga states that wrestling saved his life and was a great D1’er. My point is that DJ is also a wrestler but I dont think he went to college instead went mma. DJ has taken his speed and strength but pivots all of that off his wrestling thus the 12 for 12 takedowns of a D1’er. Moraga is good but his mma off of his wrestling is still in development. But that wrestlers are just better overall. Jake was not himself, not sure why? Moraga will be back too.

      Moraga: 2 time Div 1 All-American wrestler.. Mighty Mouse is just a better all around MMA fighter.. too fast and technical..

      • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

        I agree with you. He pivots all that mma experience off of his wrestling. He seemed to really have an incredible flow last night. Moraga will be back though. It’s a thin division.

    Was Johnson suggesting a super fight with Barrao? That’s a killer super fight. That is the best super fight possible in my opinion. Johnson takes a good beaten half way threw the first round,Gauges,compensates and gets the win with a finish.
