UFC started out with a dominant grappler, then came the wrestlers who sort of neutralized BJJ, then came an era where striking and wrestling kinda took turns, but at this point, about 25 years after the first UFC, striking is without a doubt the most dominant discipline. Except for Cormier basically all champions are strikers: Miocic, Bisping, Woodley, McGregor, Garbrandt, Johnson (more hybrid than the others though), Nunes en Jedrzejczyk. Another striker will be added after Holms - de Randami have fought. Fighters have almost perfected the TDD, almost perfected their BJJ and now are able to keep the fight standing most of the times. Even long time grapplers like Werdum are becoming more and more pure strikers in MMA. So is this a coincidence? Or is striking turning out to be the most dominant form of fighting? A lot has changed since this fight.
