It could also help someone with zero physical abilities get in sufficient shape to do sprints, HIIT and plyos... me thinks.

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

The article hits the science portion right on. I question the selection of exercises for this workout, as the amount of "rotational strength" developed is less than I had expected, especially considering how much the author emphasized it in the first few paragraphs.
My main question is: what degree of experience does the author have in MMA, and how many successful MMA or MA athletes has he trained? The article indicates that only a few attributes are needed for success in MMA, and completely fails to provide a skill progression that moves beyond basic GPP. This strikes me as an intense but ultimately oversimplified training program that fails to take the fighter's skill development and changing attribute needs into account.

And yes, muscle is muscle, but how you use what you have is more important than simply having a lot.
