    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Gymnastics vs. MMA

    The only way to describe this is that it is fucking insane. This fight, announced by Bas Rutten ends with a guillotine suplex performed by a maybe 5'2 gymnast.

    Now THIS, my friends, is the biggest case of "Vids or it didn't happen" I've, seen, and fortunately, this is the vid:

    That was impressive. Maybe this guy needs to work on some technique, but damn does the kid have some dynamic power!

    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

    I don't see the gymnastics in this. Being shorter, there is no way he could finish the choke standing, so he rolled into mount.

    That had to take some serious neck strength not to get his neck broken. I can't believe Bas still pronounces it Gill-oh-tine.

    No gymnastics, but you can see how it has given him monster strength.

    I do a similar move all the time in wrestling (With a front headlock replacing the choke, of course). It's called The Rolling-Cement Job. Although I usually do it with a kick-over, with my leg in a single-leg takedown position.

    Carrot-top could definitely have used some judo training. At about 00:37, he had gymguy in a double-leg, up high on his shoulder, and gymguy's head was sticking way the hell out. From there, the obvious go-to move for carrot-top would have been a sacrifice, either a souplesse (suplex) or a tomoe-nage-style back roll at speed. Gymguy's head would have thumped the canvas nicely...or he would have fucked up one or both of his arms posting to save his face.

    I agree, while he didn't show amazing technique or skill, holy **** was he fast and strong... I wonder what a parkour fighter would look like.
