Rockhold winning and losing

I was surprised at how easily Luke Rockhold beat Lyoto Machida a few weeks ago. Once it went to the ground Rockhold completely dominated the fight.

If you're a grappler you might enjoy this video of Rockhold getting destroyed by a much smaller Rustam Chsiev at Grappler's Quest. Unbelievable how physical this match was. Luke could do nothing to Chsiev.

Somewhat tangential - when you read one-on-one combat descriptions by Tolkien, they're pretty cursory and simple, unless it involves grappling - then every move is described. I know Tolkien played rugby, but I'll bet he was a wrestler as well in his youth.
