I thought Rorion did away with the soup-strainer. When he was doing the Gracie Advanced tapes, he didn't have it anymore. Granted, that was a few years ago.

Standing up fights when there's little action on the ground clearly favors grapplers. So do rounds and time limits for that matter.

Ive seen arguements where people say the cage itself is better for grapplers.
Im a pride fan, and ive seen plenty of ground fighting there in the ring.
This guy doesnt like the fact that with out a ground game, you will get worked in ufc or pride., and its the same honestly if you cant strike at all.
To fight in ufc or pride, you need many tools, if you dont have one of the tools your oppent has, its very likely your in big trouble.
The best way to win a fight, is to find your enmeys weakness and capitolize on it, if you have a ground and he doesnt, why would you strike with? Your there to win period.And it can all be said for striking too. Thats why those fights are so fun to watch, its like a violent chess match, with tons of stratgey for the most part.
