    I agree with everything except that MMA is human rooster fighting.

    Having rolled BJJ, I can see and tell you that it's not just guys rolling around on the ground. Moreover, there's a real and technical reason for why striking in MMA isn't the same as in boxing (most if it revolves around defensive against kicks and takedowns).

    And honestly, the most awesome moments in MMA occur when someone defeats another with a sweet and super technical BJJ submission.

    It only takes rolling once or twice to know how hard and how much setup some of these submissions require.

    So, I'm a huge fan.

    But I can also see that without the technical knowledge, it's all too easy to just see it as mud pit wrasslin' without the mud...
