Someone who studies a variety of martial arts, and utilizes the most effective techniques available (like Bruce Lee, who you summarily discounted earlier) is probably going to be better equipped in a real world fight than someone who is trained in only one style. This is where we agree.
1. I do think Gracie's techniques are better than PURE kung fu a majority. Fine we disagree. And I do believe a Kung Fu master could clock Gracie, but not a majority.
2. What the hell, I NEVER discounted Bruce Lee. I said he was the freaking father of MMA! That he seeks what works over all whether that be akido, fencing or ball room dancing. Lee used boxing techniques. I wish I knew 1/100 th of what he knew and applied.
3. I agree, a majority of the time, an experienced MMA has the greatest chance of victory on average as Hughes is an example. Even Hughes get beats.
I think we both agree on alot, I apologize if I was overly simplistic in my intial post. Please accept my humble apologies for any rantings/insults.
