haha…the last guy.

The retard on the last did not even bother to learn the rules.

For those who have never been on these mats they are much harder than UFC mats, which are more similar to WWE. In Judo a lot of these slams are legal, and they hurt like hell. Had a couple of concussions, although they are not allowing touching below the belt now on an initial throw, which should slow down wrestlers trying to turn it into a wrestling match. Some of these guys it looked like had done some MMA and instincts took over, especially some of the striking.

Those jackasses on the sidelines need to CTFO. They don’t understand the difference between coaching and being jerks. Women are often the worst offenders.

KungFuLowKick Says, in 4-16-2013 at 11:26:00 from    

Get in a wrestling or Judo competition if you want to slam people.This is BJJ.Learn the rules before competing a*******.Especially the last guy.
4:07 Flying armbar fail.
The one with Connor Heun makes me laugh.
“Hey ref,he’s punching”
Yeah but Connor is still cranking the submission after they went out of bounds you retard.

sleeping dawg Says, in 4-16-2013 at 12:37:31 from    

this why traditional martial arts put an emphasis on showing respect for your opponents. I think these rednecks watched rampage in pride too many times and forgot it is only a game.

rugburnbob Says, in 4-16-2013 at 13:08:32 from    

Yes this is BJJ where one man wants to wrap his legs around another man.. maybe now everyone can see what is wrong with this idea? I know it has wierded me out since the first time I saw BJJ in the 80’s, anyone else creeped out by this tactic?

Young Says, in 4-16-2013 at 13:32:13 from    

Lol the guy in the black gi got slammed from guard 2 different times

Roe Jogan Says, in 4-16-2013 at 13:33:10 from    

Where leg manipulations illegal in the last match? If so, that guy is a complete a-hole.

INANEBIGNATE Says, in 4-16-2013 at 13:40:12 from    

Good gosh can people not learn the rules before they enter in competitions or tournaments. Also that dude at the very start was a p*ssy dude slaps a the other guy then the other guy kicks him and is ready to throw down and dude just runs away lol

marvelous mad madam mim Says, in 4-16-2013 at 14:16:41 from    

so you can’t slam? you’re just suppose to get choked out? no wonder bjj is gay and mostly practiced by minorities

Matt Says, in 4-16-2013 at 14:31:31 from    

Wow, the overwhelming amount of slams were from white and yellow belts… I can say I was guilty of the same- dude was on my back try to RNC and I did a front flip onto my (our) back(s). I was promptly submitted, but newb move on my part

misotocurry Says, in 4-16-2013 at 14:48:12 from    

i had this happen to me before…a guy elbow me on the shoulder when he was pulling my lapel…i let it go and continued but it did left a sour taste in my mouth

HamCastle Says, in 4-16-2013 at 15:31:32 from    

Rednecks? I see a lot of diffrent colored people in this video.
Why not say these wetbacks or mooncrickets?

dub Says, in 4-16-2013 at 15:59:53 from    

yeah, okay.. I can understand the “no slam” rule in a sport where you choke and break limbs. But it’s really ridiculous that you can’t knee bar? So i assume you can’t arm bar either? What can you do in these kind of tournaments besides hugging?

Tempted Says, in 4-16-2013 at 16:13:12 from    


No they aren’t. Wrestling mats are softer than rings floors.

On another note, slams should be legal.

hah Says, in 4-16-2013 at 17:04:59 from    

lol the leg locks and kneebar’s are allowed on greplling tournaments just not on GI tour’s below purple belt

spaced Says, in 4-16-2013 at 17:19:32 from    

To the first comment asking about anyone note worthy, the big guy that drops onto his back forcing the little guy to get crushed, is Rico Rodriguez (old school UFC Heavyweight champ)

john21 Says, in 4-16-2013 at 18:24:12 from    

i was kinda thinking slams should be legal but only in the highest lvl of competition and no gi. now im speculative on account im pure no gi/mma that it be too easy to pick your opponent up from the ground if he had the gi but if thats not so then there should be slams in both divisions.

Prorok Says, in 4-16-2013 at 18:48:21 from    

Well I guess you just gotta follow the rules. Some events allow slams other don’t. I know we couldn’t slam at IBJJF in Chicago and it was easy to follow.
As for those guys jumping guard and getting slammed, well folks you need to stop using that crap. Someone needs to explain to those guys that there are other ways to move the fight to the ground without jumping on somebody like an idiot. Don’t get me wrong I like BJJ, practice it myself, but jumping guard just sucks, I would never use it in real life situation nor bjj match.

T’Challa Says, in 4-16-2013 at 18:51:51 from    

I think slams should be legal.. nobody is forcing the other guy to keep the hold, he chooses to hold on.

Prorok Says, in 4-16-2013 at 18:51:58 from    

And Dub rules change, some events allow kneebars, slams etc. others don’t. With GI on it just goes by the belt. The higher your rank the more stuff you can do, etc.
It prevents unnecesary injuries and protects competitors who just start their journey with ground fighting. The more you learn, the higher your belt, the more you are allowed to do. Easy enough to follow.

misotocurry Says, in 4-16-2013 at 20:06:24 from    

@prorok….I completely agree with you, I think it is funny when people put butt shove and guard jumping on their highlight video…

misotocurry Says, in 4-16-2013 at 20:15:37 from    

on a side note….if you know you are going to get slammed in the triangle or from your guard….they should really learn to break the fall

Prorok Says, in 4-16-2013 at 20:29:32 from    

Yeah I guess it’s kinda easy to get knocked with a slam when the rules prohibit slamming and it just comes as a surprise to you. Follow the rules fellas.
When it comes to triangle slams, just let go. I’ve seen guys who could still finish the choke after being slammed but the risk is always there.

Lefty Says, in 4-16-2013 at 20:54:26 from    

marvelous mad madam mim you’re an idiot. Everyone in the UFC practices BJJ.

so Says, in 4-16-2013 at 22:29:11 from    

if ur in ur guardo and dude stands, hook da leg and he wont slam u, 99 % of time, rookies, mostly.

Tempted Says, in 4-16-2013 at 22:41:28 from    


BJJ does suck. I hate it, BJJ alone makes for a very boring contest. The reason everyone practices it is because everyone practices it. Competitors without it(such as myself) have a disadvantage when 90% of their opposition wants nothing but to take them down, hump them for a few minutes and then leach on to some appendage. Fans want to see fights, not sparring, and most ground fighting is boring to fans. Remember, without fans we have no sport. A fighters job is to entertain, not win.

OscarMayhem Says, in 4-16-2013 at 23:02:00 from    

@ Marvelous mad madam mim

A bigoted comment is not improved by its general ignorance.

wow Says, in 4-16-2013 at 23:18:31 from    

Wow at the guys who are saying slamming should be allowed. It’s bjj and there are rules for it. same with any other sport. Also the mats aren’t that soft. learn more about it…

Jo Says, in 4-17-2013 at 00:58:18 from    

It’s not a matter of what should or shouldn’t be legal in the tourney. It’s a matter of what IS legal and what is not. If it’s not legal then the opponent isn’t defending against it, so even if you land the technique it shows no skill. Why not just stand up and soccer kick if you want to cheat. Win or lose and accept the result, cheating is worse than losing IMO.

I was nearly DQ’d when I tried to stand up out of an armbar, the guy didn’t really have it but I needed the angle to pull it out. The freakin’ guy actually grabbed onto my neck so my standing out would elevate him and get me dinged. My plan was to stand and pass. Anyway they warned me so immediately sat back down into my opponent and was arm barred.

No biggie, rules are rules even if in this case it’s questionable.

What pissed me off was the douche kept cranking it even though I was tapping. Injuring my elbow. Everyone was like, ‘serves you right for trying to cheat.’ Everyone was cheering like I was some big ol’ heel. Yeah? F*** you.

I told him, ‘try that again and I’ll slam you, fair warning stud.’ We met in the finals later and I purposefully gave him the arm bar then slammed the s*** out him. He laughed and RNC’ed me like 3 seconds later. Lol.

Slams are no biggie, but only if you are ready.

Jo Says, in 4-17-2013 at 01:32:08 from    

BTW any good amateur MMA event disallows twisting leg locks, as does any good low level grappling tourney.

Facefrack Says, in 4-17-2013 at 02:26:26 from    

I’ve had the impression that even though the material in those mats is softer than the stuff they use in a cage, they’re probably on either a hardwood floor, concrete, or some other really tough material. I think that in a cage, they use a material that is relatively hard to the touch on the surface, but the whole setup is made to be more absorbent. I’m not positive about that n I looked around on the web n couldn’t find anything in the 1 min I was willing to spend looking. Anyone else know about this?

On another note, I’ve been finding all of the racism n other bigotry really obnoxious. It really drives down the value of these discussions. Is there any way to block it?

RickJames Says, in 4-17-2013 at 02:28:31 from    

“Sleeping Dawg” needs to get pimp slapped. Ricco Rodriguez is hispanic you dumb b****.

Major Syndrome Says, in 4-17-2013 at 04:14:40 from    


1. The meathead, ignoramus culture of wanting to purposely hurt people in place of proper technique/when they are losing. The culture of the bitter loser.

2. The products of this culture exemplified in this video in both (loser) participants and (loser) spectators.

3. The proponents (losers), in these replies, of this culture and behaviour in spite of the assembled variety of losers in this footage.

4. Losers in general.

Major Syndrome Says, in 4-17-2013 at 04:23:52 from    

Additionally I do think judo and wrestling have a place in BJJ technique as at some point the 3, 4 if you will include grappling as another distinction, are all indistinguishable in positioning, technique, movement, whatever…

It’s the application of the technique.

Slamming, lifting and dangerously dropping your opponent show callous disregard for your opponent and should be punished accordingly.

Throwing someone with judo technique is OK IMO.

Why BJJ getting to the ground always has to be so tortuously slow is beyond me.

Where I train BJJ we have high level judoka and Greco wrestlers take us for throw/take down drills.

What are the BJJ rules concerning take downs?

@rugburnbob and
@marvelous mad madam mim

First of all, what kind of GAY nick names are those anyways? No wonder you sissys don’t know s*** about the sport that started and revolutionized UFC/MMA!

What are you fagots doing here in the first place? Go smell each others groin would ya?

Thanks a lot for the video Bruno!!

daki age is illegal/forbidden in judo thats why u never see it in world or olympic. Same with flyi g scissor

johnnybeards Says, in 4-17-2013 at 12:01:18 from    

It’s really sad how homophobic many people on this site are. I’m sure it does a lot to break to stereotypes regarding fight fans.

Know the Rules Says, in 4-17-2013 at 14:13:10 from    

Anyone who jumps on you while standing, and wraps their legs around you are asking to be slammed…

Major Syndrome Says, in 4-17-2013 at 20:18:36 from    

Worst mongoloids were the utter spazzmode early in the collage who hurt his opponent by slamming him unconscious then went and high fived his attendant/coach and assumed seiza like he was some f**king deep, chilled, Zen warrior when in reality a MASTER MEATHEAD competing in some inter club king of the mat, then the guy who almost cries and is borderline about to smash the officials….dude get a grip.

The tenuous hold these fragile egos have on their constantly crumbling, crisis filled existence. They are a product of megameathead, jock frat boy-ville and a bad influence on the culture of combat sports/MMA.

When your mind is full of fear derived rage and unfocused explosive energy you have little chance of executing and plan or technique and will be ultimately picked apart my a calm, skilled and efficient opponent, overall result = FAIL.

Their heroes/role models are the Sonnnens and Lesnars of the world (of meatheads).

Their antithesis is modelled in people like Fedor, Hendo and Mousasi, people who keep it quiet, humble and respectful but complete the task with little fanfare other than utilising their abilities which speak for themselves.

As in the difference between Overeem Vs. Bigfoot compared to Fedor Vs. Bigfoot.

dankarelli Says, in 4-18-2013 at 07:30:57 from    

some outright ridiculous comments here, based on both racism and ignorance to BJJ.

1 – each comp is different. some allow slams, some dont (Don’t get the knee bar rule though)

2- 80% of this video wouldn’t exist if (a) people realized that jumping guard is a huge risk, and (b) people at least try to hook a leg if they are going to do something dumb like pull guard.

didn’t any of these people watch Hughes-Newton?

paddedummy Says, in 4-19-2013 at 18:18:21 from    

First pure grapplig competition that didn’t put me to sleep and make me feel as uncomfortable as being stuck in the middle of a pride parade. Any and all rules in martial arts fighting are ridiculous and breed f@gs who exploit them. Examples include jumping guard in bjj because you “can’t” be slammed, wide stance and bobbing in boxing because you “can’t be kicked, anti judo straight arming because you can’t be punched in the face, high kicks in kick boxing because you can’t be kicked in the nuts, diving double leg takedowns and retarded exchanges in the pocket in mma because you “can’t” be struck in the spine, soccer kicked or poked in the eye. Any rule not only makes the contest completely unrealistic, boring, pointless and no proof of who would actually win a real fight but developes bad habits for actual self defense. Paradoxically rules actually increase the frequency and severity of injuries which is the opposite of what they were invented for!
