I can't imagine anyone not breaking out after rolling for that long at such an early age.

Skull fracture from an elbow in a dominant position?

I do know that these aggressive Contenders who comes out swinging will begin to have a lot of success in the sport.

The main thing depends on the rule set and if that changes at all. Look at the difference in UFC vs. Pride fighters. They trained for different environments and rule sets and you saw things in Pride that were effective that you didn't see in the UFC.

Also, I think the "average" fighter will be able to transition more seemlessly because they are able to train stand up and grappling from the beginning.

I still think the person who said a specialist will have the advantage. It has always been that way. BJJ guys had the advantage because people didn't understand the ground. Then the wrestlers took over with their takedown ability and ground and pound. Strikers started to dominate again when they learned basic ground skills and takedown defenses. Now, it's who is the best at implementing their game plan.

For example, first Couture v. Liddell he took him down and pounded him out. Fights 2 and 3, Couture didn't get the takedown and chose to stand and trade with Liddell and lost both fights. This is where the specialization will matter, then it is a rock, paper, scissors match of which specialization will beat the other.

This kind of slander is typical for acclaimed prospects in combat sports (albeit I'd argue Michael McDonald isn't hyped enough, especialy compared to Barao, which is probably the reasoning for all this animosity towards McDonald in favor of Barao) but I expected better from you, Flea.

Animosity towards McDonald? I don't think that exists. Everyone likes McDonald.

Two people just accused him of 'roiding.

Slander is a manifested outward appearance of animosity.

And what do you call ignoring the obvious?

Nuthugging

I tend to give 20 year olds the benefit of the doubt when they have a little bacne. It's not exactly uncommon.

"Nuthugging" is not a real word.

So I'd probably call it delusion. But seeing as how myself and I'm sure many of us have suffered from bacne (another made-up word) without ever using steroids (or any large group of fat-soluble organic compound), the accusation that everyone who has bacne is 'roiding, does not stand to reason.

And since delusion is deliberately resisting reason -- I am not delusional. Nor ignoring the obvious.
