“It’s not the style it’s the practitioner.” That’s just not true.
They’re styles that are clearly better head to head.
Why do you think MMA was forced to make major rule changes in the 2000s?
Why do refs help people out of positions and situations?
How many times have you heard “let him up.”
I think it’s better to say it like this…
There are styles that are close enough in functional techniques that match up better and it comes down to the person not the style. That I could agree with the other is bs and we all know it.
