Everyone in MMA thinks that focusing on an aspect of the game will lead to improvement. While this argument is logical, it is not proven through history. Melvin Guillard is one of those guys, who no matter how much he tries will not pick up the submission game. At some point, this fight will end up on the ground and Diaz will win by submission.
