Sean Salmon wrote his latest entry for MMAJunkie, which included this entertaining bit:
I have heard the comments that I am a sucker for a good submission. I wish I could argue the point, but I can’t. That is the reputation that I have shown for myself. However, I want to ask all those that have been writing me off for the Mayhem fight â€” and now will now write me off for the Hallman fight â€” to at least admit that it is possible for me to have improved in that area, as I have spent a majority of my time training stand-up and jiu-jitsu.
I gotta hand it to Sean Salmon … rather than half the meatheads out there who’d get pissed when you tell them an aspect of their game sucks, he just says “Yes, I deserve that reputation. But I’m working on it!”
And hey … I don’t doubt you’ve been working on your sub skills. But it’s not you being bad but rather Jason Miller being good … very good. He’s taken out guys who have worked for years on their submission game. Honestly, I dunno if crane kicks and wrestling will be enough!
