    Id say he improved his wrestling, allowing him to apply his bjj. But yes, he has reemphasized his grappeling.

      Exactly. It’s the wrestling that allows him to apply his strength. His take downs are vastly improved. He used to look so awkward before. His timing was awful. It’s his vastly improved MMA wrestling that has elevated him. His BJJ has always been there.
