Thread: Eargrind: what it means to you
6/03/2011 7:20pm, #51
I had a Ukranian wrestler in my guard doing no gi grappling, he was the best part of 20 stone/ 300lbs.
His tactic was to 1 inch headbutt me, jawgrind and eargrind.
**** got swept and subbed.
After I subbed him and we restarted I made sure I got his back and then was just a **** to him; trying to smack and rub his face into the mat, dropping subtle shots on him and generally being a dick.
Far from my finest hour, but if you're in a war you have to be able to deal with it.

I really don't think about the word "eargrind" unless a thread pops up like this but I remember being a filthy lurker and FWIW I considered it a pisspoor excuse beneath even "Dog ate my homework". Tapping for an eargrind seems like fig leave to cover the shame of tapping at all when your pink and supple ego won't allow you to admit you were wrong. You got beat EXACTLY like everyone said you would. It sounded made up after the fact to save face as opposed to save ear in the moment.
It's been a while since I've watched that vid but is that the one that someone later doctored so it looked like Rudy won and rereleased it on YouTube ?

^^^ yep. Someone on ice. In Rudy's defense, he only lost the fight, someone else went on to lose at youtube.

If I were to have 1 minute of somewhat successful striking, and a few seconds of badly unsuccessful grappling, would it also inspire poetry years from now?

to give Rudy due credit. He is the only one of us Bullies to have picture evidence of his beating 2 s3nators in hand-to-hand.

sigh... Rudy, don't keep this revisionist game up. Really now, this is exactly why this perpetual meme continues to persist. Because you continue this denial game, it just becomes chum in the water around here.
Onto your post....
Firstly, are guys fuckin blind?!?!? The fluke of that fight was his being HANDED a superior position, which he didn't have, where he could land a 300 lbs elbow across my face.
Where was he handed a position? You two fell into the ropes in a pseudo-half guard position where you didn't have your legs wrapped around his (because you don't know how to establish position off your back mind you) and that's exactly the position the ref moved the fight to in the middle of the ring, so you'd stop fighting with your head outside of the ropes.
For the record, I believe the fight should have taken place on a large open mat to prevent that, but w/e.
I was almost out cold. Everything else is just gravy. It wasn't a simple smear after that. I thought I torn the fucker. Pft, you fight somebody 100 lbs heavier than you and see what happens.
Secondly, it was ONE fight. The ONLY fight ANYONE from my bullshido **** list that would actually man up. It just happened to be the biggest guy you had. Any given Sunday the underdog creeps buy and wins. BJJ had as much to do with his win as a bird does causing a hurricane.
Finally, eargrind is still the battle cry of the weak. I talk about anything at all and some Bullshido cock sucker will whip it out like its a free pass. "Look guys, I used the word. Ain't I pretty. *bats eyelashes*."
But its OK, the reality is that its always the same handful of weak idiots that come out of the woodwork. The same idiots that are FOREVER hidden behind their keyboards. Most haven't even been to a TD/hugfest/BBQ/point sparring. Its a LOL riot to me.Knowing is not enough, you must apply...
