Here are the facts. MMA may stand for "mixed martial arts" but it's far from that. Most MMA fighters are graplers who have added kickboxing techniques to their repertoire and have been trained from day 1 that there are rules to abide by. That happens to be a far cry from the way most "stand-up" (for lack of a better word) systems were meant to be used. With the exception of some pro MMA fighters, I've yet to see a moderately experienced MMA person acurately execute any level of close-range, stand-up fighting technique (where the real damage is done). Instead, when the distance is closed, they opt for the grapple. That may work in a ring (along with a mohawk and lots of tattoos) but it may not always wont work in life-or-death. Especially when you start getting older.
still doesnt make sense.. Im not disagreeing that stand up "may" be prefered in a "bar" fight. however, MMA is not BJJ, two different things.
Also, when your trained correctly going to the ground in a "bar fight" may not be that bad an idea. If you know what your doing you can easily subdue your apponent and move to the next one. On the ground or standing up.
The bigest problem is when people like you say that boxing is better then bjj or whatever you said earilier.. MMA is a mix of fighting, both standing and ground. so if your trained correctly then thats the best to have. Or you can take MT and BJJ or some combination. which is basically an MMA class.
enough of that ramble. lol
