    Australians can't fight. Your argument is invalid.

    The best 8 they could find and probably the only Australians sober enough to make it through airport security.

    Excellent piece of writing:

    "The Eddie Bravo, Gracie family mellow drama continues."

    Really? Mellow drama?

    That **** was so bad I thought it was a Bleacher Report article.

    That's what makes it Brazilian.

    It's a good thing they weren't fighting then.

    I disagree pretty strongly with you Devil. I thought the match was pretty exciting. Is it street applicable to jump half guard? No. Is it Jits? Yes. Does Eddie jumping half guard in this match invalidate his entire styles' street or MMA applicability? No.

    There are a ton of sport jits moves/positions that aren't street applicable. IMO, if street applicability was the measuring stick we all used for judging weather or not a jits match was good, we'd have Gracie combatives tournaments. But we don't, because it turns out that jits has more than, what, 36 moves, and that grappling, even when you're performing moves that might not be deemed "street applicable" at all times, is a pretty valuable skill set to have in a real fight.

    But, that's just me. My style of jits is the style that 1) I enjoy playing, and 2) I have success with.
