That was one of the most interesting aspects of the first couple of UFCs. What I was getting at earlier was how it not only bought all these very different styles together. It also demonstrated that in the heat of battle all these unique styles quickly went out the window and were replaced with scrappy brawling.
Gracie was probably the only practitioner who didn't panic and was able to stay true to his style and training.
