I think I would do OK in a street fight because I watch a lot of MMA.

    I'm not saying I'd be the next Kimbo or Rickson but I assume I'd be better than your average bloke on the street simply by the sheer volume of high-level fighting I've watched over the years. Even guys way larger than me. You know they are just going to wing that right haymaker at you, duck and straight right-pow. Follow up with a knee to the junk, O-soto-gari and transition to mount and just start laying elbows until the threat is neutralized and then I'll go home with his hot girlfriend.

    Does anyone else think that we hardcore fans are probably higher-level fighters than most people even without any training?

    I believe it might give you an edge on the strategic but it'll do nothing for you if you never threw a pucnh before or have 0 cardio tbh
    So it still depends on what kind of fan you are

    I think I'd be good in sex because I watch a lot of porn. Haven't gotten the chance to test my skills though, but one day...

    Only to a small degree. Watching is no substitute for training.

    It can take you a small way.
    I was pleasantly surprised how well I did when I started grappling.
    More than one teacher went 'you obviously have BJJ background'.
    I did not at the time.

    Only if he's left handed, that would throw me for a loop. But only 10% of the population is left handed which means I have a 90% chance of winning a fight with a random person on the street.

    Good deal...

    Your assignment this week is to walk up to a complete stranger. In about the same general condition as yourself, height, weight, etc.

    And start a fight. Come back and let us know how it went.

    I'm pretty sure it gives us the advantage in our heads, but then the time comes to execute and we most likely get KTFO while being filmed and the video goes viral

    Well I don't want to hurt someone for no reason, that's terrible, but it's nice to know I have this knowledge in my back pocket if shit goes down some day

    The only two things in MMA that may help you without any training até the eye poke defense and kicks to the groin.
    Your odds of correctly performing an o-soto-gari without training are close to zero. Most likely you'll end in side Control bottom, with average Joe throwing innefective strikes while you hug him.

    This.

    If there's two random, untrained, equal in size people that are fighting, and one is an MMA fan and the other isn't, I'd give a very slight edge to the MMA fan since they'll at least have some kind of idea of what to do, even if they aren't exactly technical. But...anyone who trains beats the everloving fuck out of anyone who doesn't.

    You're not hurting them, you're just testing your skills. They'll appreciate it and feel honored once you tell them that you watch human cockfighting afterwards.

    But it's not like they even know what an o-soto-gari is so how would they counter it?
