Then we probably agree.

As a sidenote, this thread underlines that there may be something to "iron body" training after all. Not the ludicrous chi stuff, but rather conditioning the body to hard blows. Getting used to being hit makes a world of difference.

And incidentally, this guy:

is probably closer to good advice in a street fight than most modern fighters of any style.

exactly, most streetfights end when somebody gets that first clean shot in, most other streetfights dont end till other people jump in.

Streetfights dont normally last more than a minute.

Which would tend to favor "Tank Abbott Training"--lift lots of weights, forget cardio, train boxing and wrestling, and get yourself into plenty of streetfights. Strange, but then again it almost got him the UFC belt.

why train for streetfights, stay out of them. too much legal trouble to be had.

Agreed, though "self-defense" is still useful to know. Just like it's always a good idea to have a fire detector, even though you don't regularly try to burn down your house.

I very much agree with this. The first time you get clocked hard is a real eye opener. You can see it with guys like Arona who are primarily grapplers with little striking experience, they make a face like they are pooping their pants when they get hit.

true, but lets be real here.

If you practice boxing, kickboxing, muay thai, judo, bjj, etc. That is going to be plenty for self defense 99% of the time

Yes. That was what I meant--martial arts training under sparring conditions.

I was not implying that you should go out and start street fights.

Of course MMA is the most relevant to street fighting,but its still not streetfighting.....In the street guys can bite,kick balls,gouge and such like.....Nobody in MMA or any other sport trains to avoid this stuff......Really streetfighting is unpredictable and more about agression and who can incapacitate the other guy pretty quickly.....
If someone got a lock on mike tyson he might bite them or squeeze their balls.....Streetfighting can be a bit of a lottery.,even between skilled guys,just like some MMA matches...
These sports were made to eliminate the more unsavoury practices of barenuckle free for alls.....All of these full combat sports can have their practical uses and thay all need skills,some folks are more suited to MMA,some to wrestling and some to boxing....I think the biggest assets in streetfights are agression,will to win and the ability to apply hurt quickly...
Its very difficult to decide if gracie or tyson would win a streetfight because there are too many intangibles and we dont really know how good either of the guys are in a pure no rules streetfight.....
