    This guy would make for an interesting interview for the mag. He'd have a good perspective on Kung Fu, San Shou, Wu Shu as it relates to MMA.

    lol

    Fair enough, DJ.

    Nevertheless, with Rousey vs. Carmouche, I can't help but be reminded of Carano vs. Cyborg.

    Sweet deal...any involvement with MMA is good for CMA.

    You guys really care that much about who wins? I get the annoyance of crazy haters, but I mean, until she finds somebody she cannot arm bar, we won't really know how deep she can reach.

    Don't get me wrong, I like her style and I LOVE how she says "I'm gonna take your arm and this is how" and then does it. But she hasn't really had very many big fights yet. Don't forget how many unstoppables were stopped easily by the right opponents. Coleman comes to mind in the early days. Or remember when Lawler was dominating and then somebody was like "I'm gonna beat the hell outta this guys legs" and next thing you know he is verbally tapping after the fact.

    I'm over getting behind people like that. Now I just hope it's a good match.


    I have no doubt whatsoever about whether or not CMA's will become recognized as effective bases for MMA. Sure some CMA is crap, but then some boxing is crap too.

    It annoys me a bit how people say "it's not enough". Yet they don't shit on wrestling or boxing, two sports that clearly fall into the lacking category when used alone.

    Of course! It's a sport. In sports, it's all about who wins. That's why it has such entertainment value. Like my old NCAA fencing coach used to say "no one cares who comes in second place except for second place and their mom."

    Everyone in the game knows wrestling and boxing aren't "enough," but the fact is a number of pure boxers and wrestlers have done well in MMA. The same cannot yet be said for Kung Fu.

    the difference? you really don't see pure boxers and pure wrestlers anymore. and ones we have seen gated well. they admitted the need to cross train years ago. it's 20 years later and some cma guys still say ground work is in their style, they won't go to the ground, they can modify their techniques, etc. also cma tend to hate to acknowledge outside skill sets. cung le does san shou and wrestling.he's also done tkd. if you search this forum, you will find guys arguing that his wrestling isn't what he's using and that he's fighting with pure san shou. it's retarded.

    Not anymore. And a good cma practitioner could have done ok in the original ufc matches. That was all a clusterfuck though. I don't count the early examples because the game has changed dramatically. No one basic range will cut it anymore. Sure, a boxer can get lucky. But most likely he'll bust his ass learning how to not get taken down, how to check kicks etc. CMA already has all that. Not all of course, some cma is a sad joke. But some works, straight up. The days of pure arts in MMA are long gone.

    Like I said before, you had guys like Coleman dominate, then all the sudden somebody realized that if they could stay on their feet they could pick the guy apart. And it happened.

    At a time when everyone thought grappling and specifically ground fighting was the end all answer, guys like Maurice and Bas came out and showed everyone the obvious flaw in their thinking, paving the way for guys like Chuck Liddell. Then it evolved again, and again, and again. Now we have the Silvas, the Aldos, the St Pierres. Clearly being diverse and flexible is the key. What exactly do you see in MMA that cannot be found in or adapted into CMA?
