  1. Gargoyle Wrestling says:

    Congrats to these guys they deserved it. ….But can you hear it…listen…That’s right here comes the Team Alpha Champions. Wrestler’s dominate. Those three guys deserve bonuses too.

    • Jujitsu Player says:

      Wrestlers dominate…not when they face elite Jujitsu, case in point, Dan Henderson v’s Jake Shields and Jon Fitch v’s Demian Maia…both totally dominated. I can also see Vinny Magalhaes pulling off a submission victory against Phil Davis.

      • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

        LOL….do you really want me to list off all the so-called elite bjj boys that have been dumped and beat up by wrestler’s??? I will if you want. But I think most people already know that wrestlers dominate bjj. Here is the hierarchy in mma:
        #1 – Wrestling
        #2 – Wrestling
        #3 – Wrestling
        #4 – Boxing
        #5 – Thai/Kickboxing
        #6 – juijitsu

        Shield’s controlled a gassed Hendo after he shot his wad beating the guy silly. Maia did neutralize Fitch, but all he did was hold on to him. I don’t remember a submission, do you? So what Maia actually did was WRESTLE most of the time. As a juijitsu player, do you actually understand when something is juijitsu and when it is wrestling?

        • This may be the only thing about MMA that I dislike says:

          Wrestling IS a huge part of MMA, I agree. But when wrestling is the main art that fighters rely on, the fights that they are involved in tend to be less exciting. The IOC is removing wrestling because they feel that there are other sports which are more relevant (and more liked). Wrestling isn’t one of them because it just isn’t that enjoyable to watch.

        • Jujitsu Player says:

          I wouldn’t say it’s always the case but at times the guys with elite jujitsu skills can neutralize great wrestlers, I agree it’s a fine line when the guy is holding and controlling the fighter but you couldn’t call what Maia did to Fitch as wrestling. Jujitsu is as much about smarming and controlling your opponent as wrestling is. I raised the Phil Davis match up with Vinny as a good example, I’m really looking forward to seeing how their skills match up. Davis has great wrestling but Vinny truly has elite jujitsu…

          I do agree being able to wrestle and also counter wrestle keeping the fight standing or get back to standing is the thing that wins most fights, GSP is the perfect example because he’s able to control where the fight is better than anyone in MMA today.

          I disagree on the Shields fight though, I thought it was a mismatch and Hendo would destroy him but it was the opposite, a much smaller Shields completely controlled him.

        • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

          @juijitsu player. First Shields never submitted Hendo. He couldn’t knock him out either in full mount. Hendo got gassed from trying to ko Shields in the first which he almost did. Shields juijitsu did nothing otherwise he would have submitted him. Vinny is a snake for sure but Davis is a dominant grappler and he will nullify most of Vinny’s offense. I see Davis beating him easily. To me juijitsu is way to soft, whereas wrestling is controlling and dominate. The best fighters are those that use wrestling and striking and if in dominant position my do a choke on the ground. juijitsu is not how you win an mma fight.
