I saw and read fighting articles and basically said all these masters in martial arts(exception being Brazilian Jiu Jitsu) loose badly when they had to fight in an event or out in the street.

You never wanna take a street fight to the ground or their buddy will kick you in the face. Gracie brothers did a good video

I may have did wrestling in HS if I went back in time but in those days it was very abnormal and nobody thought it linked to fighting

I agree .
I think wrestling plus boxing is best
Then
Muay Thai plus BJJ
I think the mindset is most important in fight. A defensive mindset goes along way, with striking and wrestling there is alot of allowance on recoil. Kind of commit, defensive boxing with a strong leg kick is hard to beat

Fight Night in Minneapolis, Ngannou TKO de Santos after de Santos threw a wild overhand right that miss and his body went with the punch, which was his 1st punch and only punch he threw! Ngannou just jag him on the cheek and he went down. Fight really lasted 20 seconds but the said a minute!

Hopefully Thiago actually "takes it to him" and doesn't give up after eating a few kicks. Christ this can't be any worse than the Smith fight.

Just seems like every Jones opponent says the same thing. That his opponents beat themselves and that they're going to get in Jones' face and make it a fight. Then they eat a few leg/body kicks, maybe a knee on the inside and they spend the rest of the fight trying to survive.

Watching the prelims now, jones may have the biggest "mma" forehead in the sport (lesnar was previous champ).

Mma forehead = muscular eyebrows, makes them buldge out, only one way to get them

I do have to say... pretty good main card. I'm actually interested in every fight. Although barely interested in Nunes/Holm.

Rockhold looked slow at LHW, the kick he got nailed at the end of the 1st round was questionable but he got smoked by that punch.

May have still been dizzy from the kick. But I mean he was even leaving space in the clinch for Jan to throw elbows.

Rockhold might want to try heading back to AKA hasn't gone well either since Henri Hooft took over the reins.

That was timed to perfection from Masvidal, well thought out since Askren was probably gonna shoot for the takedown.
