    Relative importance of ground/strike/clinch

    So, given that Striking, Clinch and Grapple are all important, is there a relative importance for each?

    I'm saying, would it be more beneficial to focus on one area over another to a certain extent? For example, I watched the prelims of UFC 147 and I noticed that all but one were victory via striking or GnP (which does presuppose grappling ability), and only one via submission

    Now, I don't really watch much, if any, MMA, but I've just landed somewhere where you can get it on TV. So, is there a greater ratio of MMA success as strikers vs submissioneers (submariners?)

    Let's just say that the Gracie Era is long gone.

    Sorry the game is now at a level where MMA is supposed to be a master of all trades.

    I think you either have to be a badass striker with iron-clad takedown defense, or a grappler with good clinch, takedowns, and an iron-chin. Or you could just be awesome at everything like Dan Henderson.

    Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is the only important facet in combat. The UFC event last night likely took place in a country where Jiu-Jitsu is not very prevalent, hence the low number of submissions.

    Or an awesome striker who occasionally submits people. Or have a really good wrestling base and great cardio. Or you know, insert any other combination that describes some successful fighter.

    All that truly matters is constantly drilling the Steven seagal crane kick
