    Where strikers are getting really good at stuffing the takedowns and most fights being on the feet?

    No.

    Plenty of strikers get taken down all the time.

    The age of nanobots and unstoppable takedown defense. Will be remembered for the latter.

    I would say it's an era of more well rounded fighters which = strikers with better TDD. By no means are fighters getting impossible to take down.
