i hate kos and i think he’s a d-bag…. BUT i agree with him. I used to be training MMA (Wrestling, BJJ and kickboxing) and even had some competitions. Now I’m training only wrestling and its harder physically and mentally.

actually i watched this interview… he comes off a lot better and more genuine than usual here. but he’s still a douche.

wrestling is the most grueling element of fighting and training exclusive wrestling is much more exhausting that when you mix in BJJ and boxing. There are more natural moments for pauses in those sports. wrestling is go go go

How many disciplines do you train? Now ask yourself how many of those disciplines are you a national champion in? How many of those disciplines are you world class in?

wrestling is laying on your opponent on the ground. seem simple to me

I don’t think he’s insulting MMA. It actually makes some sense. If you’re a great wrestler you can use that to your advantage if you’re facing a great striker, neutralizing his greatest weapon and making the fight “easier.” If you’re just wrestling, though, the fact that it’s one dimensional thins out the crowd and makes sure you’re in for serious competition.

He’s right that TRAINING grappling is way harder then training striking because when you grapple,you grapple at 100% and it’s extrmely hard cardio wise and physically but getting punched in the face and getting your orbital smasshed is way harder then wrestling.

You just proved how ignorant you are about MMA and proved that the biggest rainnig you make in your day is walking up to the fridge and getting another pepsi.Trying to slam and control somebody your size and strenght while he’s trying to do the same thing is the hardest workout you can do.Punching people in the face and kicking them is simple,all you have to do is move and attack when you nned to attack.Wrestling and grappling is extrmely hard and you NEVER rest.You have to do soemthing different with every move your oppoenent makes.

Agreed. In terms of intensity and willpower maybe not technique.

BJJ > Wrestling.

i want to see diaz vs koscheck. Would be a great match. They would both trash talk and taunt each other the whole match. They both have excellent cardio, and both like to bang. Would be much more entertaining the the gsp snooze fest that gsp vs diaz will be.

I feel like wrestling is much more technical than BJJ in terms of the positioning. I also think it’s done at a much higher pace than BJJ – much more scrambling.

However, when it comes to the amount of exertion put into each match, I think BJJ is much more difficult because of the gi. Obviously, you need less technique to control a person with a gi as compared to a wrestling uniform, and because of that greater level of resistance/control your opponent has on you, I feel like BJJ requires more strength.

So, I’d say wrestling is harder from a cardio standpoint, and BJJ requires more strength. I also don’t buy the idea that BJJ is all about leverage and little strength… when you start seriously competing with guys that are at your level of expertise, it comes down to speed and strength.

KungFuLowKick Says, in 11-2-2011 at 19:43:47 from    

Not really.BJJ isn’t about strenght at all.Strong guys with good technic are good but in the end technic will beat them.If BJJ was all about strenght,Marcello Garcia and Demian Maia couldnt submit HWs.Also wrestling takes way more strenght then BJJ since you try to slam and pin a guy,in BJJ there’s no points for slamming.

He is totally right! training specifically in one disciplin is way harder than mixing 5 together!

DeLaSeoul87 Says, in 11-4-2011 at 14:36:41 from    

@KungFuLowKick, lol technique helps, but it’s mostly marketing. Sure, it will make a difference if you’re competing against someone who doesn’t know how to roll, but once you start competing against brown/black belts with backgrounds in wrestling and judo, it really comes down to how fast you can execute techniques, strength, and flowing.
