    I don't always agree with some of the individual things Rickson says, but on a whole I have immense respect for him. Everyone is entitled to their beliefs ad views, and I actually agree with SOME of Rickson's philosophy.

    i feel the same way...i agree with a lot of what he says, but somethings are a little too much. the stuff about mma now being athlete vs athlete, and fighters needing to build up strength, explosiveness, etc to fight under modern mma rules (short rounds, quick standups) is right on the money. nowadays, its very much a clash of power and athleticism, with fighters trying to force their will on each other. but i think this is typical of any competitive activity, not just mma.

    i do, however, think that rogerio can submit wanderlei:icon_twis
