It's the typical athletic dude that hasn't been tested talk. Most of us have been there at some point. It says more about his current classmates or he is "that guy."

Apparently, you've never seen dirty boxing before.
If you try to execute a no-gi throw (if you survive crashing through striking range) agaist a scrambling, sweaty dude, you will find yourself in a clinch. Many mediocre grapplers die there. Body shots, knees, short hooks, elbows. It's a lit of fun if you know what you are doing; and pure hell if you don't.
Do you practice your throws no-gi with unlimited full-contact striking?

And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

"Because to stand and bang you are going to stay in and out of striking range instead of trying to close the distance. That's the philosophy of most striking arts. Distancing for striking. They use distancing to their advantage in order to pick you apart with striking. "> no. You have no idea what you are talking about.
"There was one point in the fight where Rampage was entering the striking range to strike. But Jon Jones entered and jammed him and clinched." > and you wouldnt think Jon Jones knows ANYTHING about striking would you? (If you think Jones knows as little about striking as you do than you are hopeless.)
"What about MMA will stop those throws from working?"> nothing. Just the same things as ANY OTHER MARTIAL ART would stop you. You are not Ronda Rousey- You are not Randy Couture- And you are not even a Black-belt in whatever system you are studying.
May i KINDLY ask if you believe you could perform whichever of those throws you wish- on whoever you wish- at will?

And since rondas name came up a few times now:
I've actually spoken with miss sexy judo a couple of times, as well as speaking briefly with her mom and judo gene in regards to her training.
You know how she prepared for MMA? Mostly boxing lessons with nogi and wrestling added to them.
Yup, the girl who went arm bar in under a minute in every fight on her title run dedicated shitloads of time to boxing.
Go figure, a judo Olympian emphasized striking... I can't figure that one out for 3 sheckles, I tell you what...

NOOOOO way! You're ALMOST implying that a world ranked olympic judoka black belt worked on STRIKING?
I am seriously done with this guy- if he doesnt understand why; doing complicated throws are unlikely. Being a good grappler doesnt mean you will win with grappling UNLESS your striking is good enough to make that an OPTION.
(on a side note- it has been my DREAM to get beaten up- choked out- and ridiculed by judo Gene.)

A bit off topic, but I read this book once by a Christian author in which he was explaining the evils of the movie E.T. as there was a child who called another child "penis breath". He then went on to say how bad it was that a Christian child watching the movie would be forced to think how one would get penis breath. Truthfully, until this author pointed it out, I had never given it much thought.
Carry on.GET A RED BELT OR DIE TRYIN'.

Look, despite my best efforts there is still a JJJ apologist inside me that wants to see you do well. And that is why I sincerely hope you come up against a good opponent and lose (not hurt mind you, just lose). You are naturally athletic and have a lot of potential. If you could drop your ego and learn the techniques properly (instead of using your strength and size to power through them) you could be really good. But the only way I see that happening is if you get your bubble burst.
Take for example your dogged determination to eschew striking and close the distance for a throw. Yes that is how a lot of jujitsu works but jujitsu was developed by 5ft tall men wearing armour. You have a natural reach advantage that you would be a fool to throw away. You should be working on your striking so that you keep your opponent outside their range but in yours - where you can inflict damage and they can't. Sooner or later this will force them to rush you which is where your jits comes in. Make them come to you, not the other way around. And if neither you nor your corner can see that then you're in trouble.Dum spiro, spero.
Tada gan iarracht.
