That's the big difference when a pure kickboxer goes into an MMA fight. They have to develop the ground game since that was never a concern to them.

Mark Hunt has an 8-7 record, but only one loss was due to a KO or TKO. The rest all came from submissions on the ground, which is had to do with someone like Hunt.
