Gun from the shop and I'll never lose the long game to someone. I never start fights on a matter of principal but if someone else wants to I'll escalate it until they admit defeat or one of us is dead.
I remember being 22 and thinking l knew everything. No point in me trying to put an old head on young shoulders though. You are one who will only learn things the hard way.

You want to start biting someone who is on top of you and completely controlling you? Quick way yo get your skull imprinted into the pavement and probably teabagged when you are choked unconscious.

You wouldn't be biting shit under fill mount but even if you did, you think they just stand up and walk away?

Here's a tip I really hope you take seriously, if this ever happens, take your beating like a man. Do not lower the tone of the fight, it's retarded. All that happens is the guy who is playing with you like a child is now going to be more inclined to stamp all over your head or snap your arm.
I will say that I think that some BJJ guys over estimate a bit how good they would be in the street (especially true of guys with no other combat training).


For one...its true that a really good bjj practitioner can largely neutralize punches on the ground.

But most of the guys doing BJJ aren't "really good".... and even when they are pretty good unless they have done mma training they have likely never experienced a dude punching and elbowing hard and fast in close (most pure bjj dont have people doing that while rolling like the Gracies often did).
Having said all that ..I do think people who don't know bjj also over estimate their ability to neutralize the ground advantages training will have with a few bites.

So how do you get back at Bubba and his friends while they pass you around like the bitch that you are in prison?

i think people like you overestimate exactly how easy it is to hit someone on the ground. the average bloke doesnt even know how to posture properly in the guard let alone land a hard, accurate punch that doesnt break their knuckles.

The only bitch here is you, BJ giving boxer. You and your mum can give me a BJ at the same time, I've heard you are better at it than her though

When I roll I can see plenty of opportunities to punch people.

Nevermind elbows and headbutts.


Of course the guy who knows bjj can do that as well...hopefully....and he should be better with better positional control.


But it definitely throws some monkey wrenches into it.

thats because youre ROLLING fella. nobodys expecting you to start dropping bombs. think of how many guys in mma get bombed out early from the guard. its very very few. these arent cutting edge jiu jitsu practitioners either. often its blue and purple belts.

If we're rolling with punches / doing MMA I roll very differently from when I roll pure jiu-jitsu. I roll differently with headbutts than I do just with punches and/or elbows. I roll differently at judo than I do at BJJ. If I'm boxing I'm generally not worried about getting kicked either.

That's like saying, "When I spar in boxing I see so many opportunities for a double leg takedown or kick someone in the nuts". Obviously you'd roll differently with someone untrained who punches you.

Yeah, everytime I sparred Boxing I saw so many opportunities to land a elbow or a knee.....

Let´s not forget that BJJ was never ground fighting only, btw.... takedowns and how to defend takedowns are trained in every good BJJ school in the world to this day, even more if your coach is old school...

Both my main BJJ coaches are very wrestling-heavy in their approach, and we start every roll from the feet. I’m awful at the wrestling and it’s so fucking knackering, but I do so much of it that I can’t ever imagine pulling guard in BJJ or in a fight.
