Considering he was competing in a sport, then yes, he was training sport jiujitsu.

It seems that the only people who support anarchy are faggots, who want their pathetic immoral lifestyle accepted by the mainstream society. It wont be so they try to create their own.-Oldman34, friend to all children

I'm not that guy Plasma. You know this. That article has nothing to do with this ****. Team Python and I are not some stupid brainwashed fanatics that think "That **** will never work on the street so we won't practice it". I'm not sure about you but I've actually proven this **** over the years in dozens of scenarios.
A boxer can win a street fight, a wrestler can win a street fight, and a person who has only trained sport mma can win a street fight. But ****, a ballet dancer can win a street fight, a yoga practitioner can win a street fight, a computer nerd can win a street fight. Despite this, if you do not train realistically you are going to be ill prepared when it happens. That is the point. Go ahead and argue with me. They've done studies. It's the old saying "As you practice so shall you do". I like Ryan Hall but his **** would've been fucked up if that scenario would have been different. If it had he might've been ill prepared. I don't know if Ryan had prepped in the past for this stuff. You train with him, why don't you ask?

This "street fight" talk makes me want to vomit. The street fight will usually be won by the bigger, more athletic, more aggressive opponent that strikes first. Usually a sucker punch. Whether you spend your time in sport jiujitsu or self defense jiujitsu will make little difference. If you avoid the fight or recognize before the other guy that a fight is inevitable and sieze the initiative your chances of a good outcome are infinately better than reacting and playing catch up with whatever the hell you've been training in.
