    This right here is the pinnacle of MMA protection gear:

    They should be using those gloves to stop all the accidental eye poke bullshit.

    I dunno if the vibrams would have stopped the Jon Jones dislocation though, I'm not sure they really offer much lateral support when you are digging your toes in against that much pressure.

    I think a good example from UFC 159, in this argument, is Big Country. Why train at all, when the other guy can come with a hay maker and turn your lights out? That fight was an example of a real fight. Two guys squared off, measuring each other and BAM! One guy gets that one good one in from way back and it's more or less over.

    Then again, you have Penn and Teller, saying how all training is a waste of time, since, if you were to just hand over your wallet with the twenty to forty dollars it may contain, you get away much cheaper than spending tens of thousands on gym, or dojo dues, in the same time span of occurrence. So next time, you are threatened on the street, just whip out some kung funds and pay whomever for whatever issue is at hand and to walk away. How would that even go down?
    You:
    Hey man sorry I grabbed your girl's ass on the dance floor. I really am an ass for doing that, and a total ***** who you could easily stomp into the floor. I have like sixty bucks here. You can have it and I'll apologize to both you and your girlfriend, and we can both be on with the rest of our nights and avoid jail for you and the ER for me. Of course, I'll leave this establishment, so you will no longer have to look at my miserable ass, and life will be so much better for all of us involved.

    Him:
    Lemme see the sixty bucks.

    You:
    Here

    Him:
    Thanks *****

    His girlfriend:
    Fnck that Big Country! He grabbed my ass!!! Whatt am I, some kind of whore?

    You:
    Where am I; what happened?

    Attending Paramedic:
    You're on your way to the ER. You got hit and lost consciousness.

    You:
    Oh

    Attending Paramedic:
    You also pissed on yourself.

    You (internal voice):
    Aw man, these are brand new skinny jeans! Oh well, this is still cheaper than a lifetime of gym and or dojo dues.

    Bottom line is, the only way to prepare for a fight, is to fight. Barring any actual fights, the next best is sparring. Ever notice how, in TMA sessions, if you allow the session to go long enough, or the people are aggressive enough, technique starts to disappear, and soon you are left with a brawl? This happens for a reason. As soon as you get past the lower rank form and idea of what form is and it isn't, you can start to progress from being a just a martial artist, to being a fighter. You learn this faster though, if you actually fight.

    Re: Insights from UFC 159 on why your "reality self defense" training sucks

    Who said Big Country didn't train anything? I have my doubts about his cardio regimen and his meal plan, but hey, he gets it done in the octagon.
    I was just pointing out another example, from 159, where reality reared its ugly head.

    I would say Penn & Teller are in large part right. But then again I do a combat sport. I have fun doing said sport and I do it for the sport aspect. Also it keeps me in shape. Does it also so happen to give me a skill set that very well may make a bad situation less bad. Yep it sure does.

    Watch him vs Frank Mir. Now retract that.

    Although some said he had the flu (or something) just days before that fight. Not sure if it's verified or just fanboy excuses.

    You:

    I dig this. I train martial arts to sexually assault people, too.

    Me: Yeah, I choked your girlfriend out in the bathroom and then fingered her cooch. But she was just the appetizer. You're the main course, Sunshine.

    Big Country: Put your goddamn cock away so I can kick your ass, man!

    I ankle-pick Big Country and put him in a hammerlock.

    Me: Ha! Too bad you don't train, Roy, or else you might've been able to stop that! But it's too late for "should haves" now...

    I pull Big Country's trousers down.

    Me: Ohhhhhh yeah... Look at that ass, it's like a lake full of jello. I'm going to slip into you like some kind of fine oil, baby. Nobody's ever going to make hate to you like I will tonight, you can bet on that!
