Well, sambo translates more directly to MMA than BJJ, especially combat sambo. Yeah, a Sambo guy probably would get schooled by a pure BJJ guy on the ground, but then again so would most MMA fighters. Russian's never train BJJ probably due to a cultural thing, and Sambo is much more ingrained in the Russian culture therefore much more accessible for your average Russian.
