Tweet Pin It Inside MMA Halloween Episode 2011 – Don Frye, Ben Askren And Tyron Woodley Thiago Santos vs. Neil Grove Fight Video Bellator FC 56 20 Comments *****lipsbjj November 1, 2011 lol yea learning/competing in 1 discipline is 10 times harder than 3,4 plus disciplines lol.. what a goof Log in to Reply tobes November 1, 2011 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. Log in to Reply tobes November 1, 2011 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 Log in to Reply snype6969 November 1, 2011 i agree, ive always hated kos Log in to Reply bodylock November 1, 2011 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? Log in to Reply Bellend Bisping November 1, 2011 wrestling is laying on your opponent on the ground. seem simple to me Log in to Reply AOPrinciple November 1, 2011 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. Log in to Reply KungFuLowKick November 1, 2011 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.

Log in to Reply drewblood November 1, 2011 at least it was funnier than his dumbass Running for Pres video. no matter how much I try to like this guy he makes it impossible. Log in to Reply KungFuLowKick November 1, 2011 @BellendBisping 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. Log in to Reply mkwalsh November 1, 2011 Agreed. In terms of intensity and willpower maybe not technique. Log in to Reply wookiepie November 2, 2011 wrestling is more sexually satisfyig than mma Log in to Reply idgaf November 2, 2011 BJJ > Wrestling. Log in to Reply Danby November 2, 2011 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. Log in to Reply DeLaSeoul87 November 2, 2011 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. Log in to Reply KungFuLowKick November 2, 2011 @DeLaSeoul 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. Log in to Reply gary sherman November 3, 2011 He is totally right! training specifically in one disciplin is way harder than mixing 5 together! Log in to Reply DeLaSeoul87 November 4, 2011 @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.
