Additionally, there is such a thing as a difference in physical attributes—size, strength, and so forth—that requires a very large, perhaps an unattainable amount of skill to overcome. There are people out there you’ll never be able to beat, MMA training or no MMA training. It does not logically follow that some wrist-grabby style of martial dance will work better.
Hey, look at it from the bodybuilders perspective. He was just cracked in the face and made a total fool of by some skinny ass bouncer in a bar.
On some Bodybuilding forum: "Man I was like 100lbs larger than the other dude but I couldn't tag him. Maybe I'm lifting wrong, I need faster muscles".
And yes, his face should be pretty sore when the adrenaline wore off.

Reason: my spelling sucks.
I laughed at this, Hes got a point. In the end you kicked his ass because he didn't even hit you.

you actually performed amazingly well. but you're deluded, you're absolutely clueless.
you're lucky you've been training MMA and not ninjitsu or some ****, you might have got killed.
also just to make a point, going to the ground in the street isn't the death sentence everyone makes it out to be. i've done it multiple times as a bouncer myself. i understand that in this situation you were concerned about his friends, but if the situation permits, the vast majority of people suck at grappling and are easier to handle on the ground once you've had a little training. and, it's much easier to RESTRAIN someone than to FINISH them. knocking/choking someone out is a lot harder than just holding them down. remember that.
and quit that job, bouncing sucks.

dirty judo perhaps?
judo grab, the basic starting position: kuzushi:pull: headbutt fun: sleepytiem/omg you broke my nose/tooth time.
This is a dumb thread.
"One year of hobbyist level training in MMA and I'm not able to instantly destroy any attacker regardless of size??? I'd better title a thread 'MMA fails in the street' and ask people what art will allow me to be invincible!"
agreed.... add a halberd or a pike and you are basically....
