    I would say most (NOT ALL) of catch wrestling is bullshit or just low percentage plus they have pins and don't focus on the guard. Judo and sambo are good but for purely the ground bjj is simply the best. Bjj is best was some wresting takedowns or judo throws incorporated.

    This is probably one of the better sources for this argument as Bas has been in a ton of street fights and had success when he fought professionally.

    Nobody believe that anyway, nobody saw some street fightchy.

    Beside who care about some old guys in slap box conchest wearing Hick James boots.

    I slap a transexual but you don't see me brag about that. It's just what we do.

    You come across as a much more credible person than Bas is.

    Bas Rutten did not say BJJ is best for street I think. He is just giving some pros of BJJ. Every art has pros as well as cons. Bas makes his money nowadays doing promotional work doesnt he?

    At least I don't wear hed boots like Hick James and have a bald head while fading from helevancy.

    Seriously Bas is a Krav Maga guy so why he says all this.

    Holding onto a submission while some other guys bang away on you is hetarded.

    Also, he have a heally big thick bald head he probably put vaseline on that one so maybe that not gonna work for you.

    Yes he did. Read the article. He didn't say anything along the lines of that's all you need is pure bjj, but he said it would be best to learn if you have a striking background.

    The question is not even what is best. Bas said BJJ is good.
