Rickson Gracie on how he would compete in the UFC today.

"I ask Rickson if he would fight in today’s UFC if he was forty years younger? Yes, under three conditions, he says. No rules. No time limit. No weight divisions. Even if his opponent was 100 pounds heavier, Rickson believes Brazilian jiu-jitsu can prevail."
--> Rickson's response reminds me why I ultimately appreciate the way MMA has become a real sport, despite the loss of some of the romance and mystery of 80s/90s martial arts. The best fighters today can't demand that people make special rules and conditions just for them. Nor can they "price themselves out" by demanding impossible rules. Either you fight under generally accepted conditions, or the organization just crowns a champion who WILL fight, and the sport rolls along without you.
Max Cady ? Pool of blood messy . Volume Yes.
