this is what the mma press has been hyping: the new breed……...you know, the guy that has trained mma from day one. like a Rory MacDonald. after all, it has been a while. mma is popular the world over. and has been for quiete some time. but look at the Rankings: who are the top guys? it s still the wrestle-boxer. guys that are excellent Wrestlers with a rudimentary understanding of striking and submissions. it doesnt matter how well rounded you are. if you meet a world class Wrestler, you are ****ed. if you cant avoid that takedown, you´re chances of Winning are Maybe ten percent. fact is, it´s kinda boring (most of the time). but it s the reality. take welterweight for example: who are the guys that actually have a realistic shot at Winning that belt (realistic meaning they dont have to depend on luck).be brutally honest. it s not masvidal. or till. or Thompson. or ponzinibbio. or zaleski dos santos. or Gunnar Nelson (great grappler but not a great Wrestler). or leon Edwards. it s covington, woodley, Usman and ben askren. it s These four that represent the elite. Maybe not your favorite Action fighters. but the ones with the necessery skillsets.
