None of these confrontations were robberies, but scuffles that got out of hand in 1) clubs, 2) gyms, and once at a home depot store after a hurricane. The only criminal act I've seen was a butched rape attempt. Everything else has been normal people doing incredibly stupid ****. You don't necessarily have to be criminal or inherently evil to do severly stupid, evil ****. The notion that most violent confrontations involve criminals with weapons is ludicrous.
Secondly, this argument that sport fighting is rubbish for street defense is just rubbish. Yeah, the str33t is not the ring, but sport fighting is just the venue by which martial artists acquire, test and refine their martial skills. A punch is a punch, a throw is a throw, a choke is a choke, footwork is footwork, physical conditioning and aggression are physical conditioning and aggressions, independently of whether they manifest themselves in a violent confrontation or a match.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
