    Some old school vale tudo there.

    For the record, Jose “Pele” Landi-Jons also holds a black belt in BJJ, so it’s not as simple as Muay Thai vs BJJ. Pele is like his former teammate Anderson Silva - a well rounded fighter who just happens to prefer standup striking. He has a fairly impressive record, including knockout victories over Matt Hughes and Pat Miletich.

    To be fair, that match took place back in the time period where such contests were commonly seen as style vs style.
