    He's generating the power by doing most the work. I heard speed has something to do with it?

    Wow, a know-it-all blue belt telling a black belt he doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

    Might want to stop for a minute and consider if maybe it’s you who’s fucking clueless here — this is MMA, not a jiu jitsu match. Penn exploited a tiny opportunity brilliantly, you just don’t know enough about either grappling or fighting to see that.

    Lol I meant the roll from back mount to guard. It’s not a sweep so you get 0 points. Did you seriously look up the ibjjf rulebook?

    I can't remember a roll from back mount to guard in the fight, and i watched it again. Which round are you talking about when this took place?

    Of course i seriously looked it up. I always try and source my opinions. I then went and watched the back take in question (round 3) and it looks like it would score contrary to your previous claim.

    "Maia’s fault for not holding the back mount. You don’t get points for that in a bjj match" This is the quote from you i'm working with.

    What's your point? Machida already had TKO wins over Stephan Bonnar and Rich Franklin.

    I honestly don't care if you a blue , black, or red belt. People say dumb or incorrect things all the time. If a black belt comes up to you and says "hey when in someones guard remember to plant your head into their armpits and shift your weight completely off balance" then would you, even as a white belt with basic knowledge, just shut up and accept it because he is a black belt?

    Even though I am only a blue belt, what I said is extremely basic knowledge. When in guard posture up, sit back on heels, keep balance centered, and dont shift weight to either side of opponent as that invites back takes and/or sweeps. You dont need to be a Black belt to know this man. And why would this be different in an MMA fight as opposed to a BJJ match? Its not.

    A ton of things are different between just BJJ and a real fight, that is true, but what I saw in that gif isn't it. Hughes was in Penns full guard and his weight , balance, and head all went to the exact wrong spot and Penn capitalized on it. People said Hughes was throwing an elbow and thats why he did that, ok fine, but that still gave Penn a very easy opening to take Hughes back.

    Honestly, I feel that it is you who doesnt even have a basic concept of grappling. Do you train?

    Nog put on a bit of a clinic against Randy. Tough day for him indeed.

    Name one other time a fighter has pulled off a reversal like Penn did, while being ground n pounded? You are acting like it is so easy to do. Like Hughes throwing an elbow from top was some amateurish move, that anyone could have avoided the strike, and then maneuver around and then on top of him lol

    It's kinda like arguing with my girlfriend about shit. I really don't know if you are even serious with this bullshit...
