Check this out: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=3891832709081896340&q=arona Arona was a bit open during standup, yes. Fedor seemed to have better cardio in the long run, yes. But Arona got the mount position so often that I lost count. I believe that strikes were allowed to the head during standup, but not on the ground. Still, Arona repeatedly got past Fedor's punches and took him down to the ground. If punches would have been allowed on the ground AND if Arona was a better finisher with either ground and pound or submissions (lol), he might have won that day. And I wouldn't bet against him, necessarily, if they had a rematch. What do you think? Check the match before you answer.
