This come from 4 years of being a marine and fighting in marine bars, plus 10 years of Krav Maga, BJJ, Shotokan, and Kempo.
...After my 20 years of martial arts experience...you are correct! MMA is BS in the street or a bar. What are you going to do in a bar...take me down and put me in the guard while my friend breaks a Bacardi bottle over your head? Not quite. MMA works best in arranged matches with rules. Real martial arts work best in quick, reactionary scenarios where there is a definitive attacker and a definitive defender.
