    Sport BJJ is growing, and is not a fad. The sport itself is too physically tough to ever be McDojoised. You can't have zero contact BJJ. I think sport-BJJ will become more mainstream and start attracting athletic types who might otherwise have gone for judo or wrestling or kickboxing.

    Training BJJ as the ultimate cage fighing style though, will probably decline in popularity and be integrated into what will probably become a more homogenous set of techniques and training methods for NHB-fighters.

    BJJ is only a fad in the sense that, right now, it's attracting a lot of the wannabees.

    Absolutely not. It's not going away. It may decline in popularity a bit, but it's here to stay. It's just simply too effective. People may bust on BJJ culture for producing "pretenders". But you know what? There really are people who can whup up on kung fu guys after only 3 months of BJJ. Very few other arts can boast the same. It's not unbeatable, but it is very effective.

    I'd hold a little more stock in this thread/poll, if it was started by a neutral third party and not a BJJ nutrider.

    Just to clarify again.

    FADS don't alway go away. They are something that is VERY POPULAR and OVERHYPED for a time period then declines in popularity.

    I, for the record, like BJJ and am even contemplating trying it out.

    But by itself, it's not the cat's ass. Any competent fighter would know that.

    Please show me where in this thread I do this "nutriding" you speak of. Also, how am I rigging the poll?

    I think its popularity will both increase and decrease. Increase, as in MMA will be more popular, therefore more people will want to try it out. Decrease, in that wannabe's will be filtered out over the years. Good in both cases. :)
