    Whats the general opinion? for MMA is sprinting better because you generate the explosivness needed for takedowns etc? or long distance because it generates better Cardio?

    god I want to say something like me kicking you in the c u n t for asking a old quesion, but instead i will just say mix it all up and for the love of GOD look at the ongoing thread started by eza (you're a lazy lazy person btw thread starter, its a massive thread and on the first page. You strike me as being a lazy lazy individual).

    Rather than start another thread, I'll just hijack this completely useless one.

    Everytime I see a thread where the TS obviously hasn't considered doing any personal research I have an almost uncontrollable urge to make a smartass comment. Is that wrong?
