I would rather do WTF TKD than powerlift.

I have no idea why people still buy into the idea of the muscular strong guy being a great fighter.

Powerlifting is super beneficial to most, if not all sports. Just because you powerlift doesn't mean youre going to turn to Pudz.

The grip and core strength gains you have through power lifting is godlike.

You want to be a good fighter you need a decent grip and a strong core. If you don't have decent core strength, you ain't winning shit.

If you do decide to train, let a good, strong grappler get a hold of you and watch how helpless you really are. You will change your views really fast about strength and power training.

Wrestling used to have subs, they got rid of it like how boxing got rid of wrestling. I agree, submissions and escaping bottom position are a very important part of grappling and in MMA and should be trained by all.
