    If Sambo was only for bitches, it would be called BJJ.

    Bunch of juiceheads holding wrists and hands.
    Imagine juicing and grinding with men 24/7.

    Normally I'd agree. I got a feeling even in MMA, Galvao could beat Khabib at WW though.

    Fake boring shit and yet you make a thread about it? :) Makes no sense. Also I don't think that slap was agreed upon.

    I mean, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a specialized thing, it's only grappling. Sambo is less skill intensive in the areas of which BJJ exists but overall is a less controlled environment with more facets therefore more diffuclt. But under that thinking, if MMA was easy you would call it Sambo. If Muay Thai was easy you'd call it Boxing.

    The shirt was awesome though

    It’s only a joke but at the same time there is a kernel of truth in it. The truth is that you can be a bitch and do BJJ seriously, but you cannot be a bitch and do any of the other things you mentioned seriously, perhaps for no more complicated a reason than they involve getting punched in the face.

    Be serious, a young Woodley retired Galvao and pushed him back to BJJ. Considering the empire Galvao created in San Diego, I would say Woodley did him a favor.

    i cannot take competitive BJJ seriously for 2 reasons.

    1. gentle art is filled with a bunch of steroid users.

    2. now that the art has had time to evolve, is it still practical or is so much of the meta of the "grappling only" styles basically watering down the practicality of it in MMA? i'm asking not stating because i don't watch enough BJJ to have a firm opinion but it seems like it's getting watered down.

    Lol, Galvao taking the slap and doing nothing. He's okay with someone slapping his brain cells away and not doing anything about it.

    BJJ is pretty rough, maybe its because Im a heavyweight but rolling with athletes and wrestling and shit. I feel it more than sparring in a ring with head gear and 16oz gloves. Also 5-10 minute matches in BJJ are fucking serious, its definitely a battle of wills, not many bitches will be good at it. Id say it was on par with amateur boxing to say the least, the concious decisions of escaping vs tapping in limb locks is often fractions of a second and often times you get injured regardless. Chokes are whatever usually but Ive gotten my neck fucked up, Ive known people who got vertibreas fucked up from guillotines and cranks. Does it require the same toughness as MMA or Muay Thai? Maybe not. Its certainly less athletically demanding for most.

    A short honest response:

    BJJ matches heavily favor pulling guard, it's easier to score an advantage or even maybe even score some points from a sweep. This means on a practical level, learning takedowns isn't the priority and even can be risky at times... this is changing, but BJJ still favors guard pulling. On the other hand, being on bottom in MMA has little to no advantages and the judges will almost always see you losing if you are mainly on the bottom for a decision.

    The one really unexplored area: hitting Imanari rolls or forcing the 50/50 guard in MMA. Much like Ryan Hall does sometimes. If someone like Gordon Ryan can pull 50/50 in every match, it might be a problem for people he'd be going against in MMA.

    Idc what anyone says, you don't slap a man. No matter who is in front of you, if he slaps you, hands will be thrown.

    Gordon emasculated Galvao completely, wtf.

    Khabib has never proved to have T-bomb power. It would be mostly a grappling match.

    With Galvao drowning on the bottom or getting his face jabbed up.

    Yeah, right after Khabib outwrestles Olympic gold medalists in the training room and before he beats GSP by UD.
