    I think the UFC just highlighted what had been lost from many martial arts. There are many styles out there who do not do pressure testing of there techniques and then when the fight is on and the stress levels rise there natural instincts take over and technique goes out the window. I think this is wear the main lessons from Judo and BJJ can be learnt as sparring is conducted almost every lesson. Familiarity reduces stress levels and therefore allows you to stay relaxed. I believe this is the main success achieved by BJJ.

    Not sure he was a black belt in Judo, though. Got a source for that?

    In any case, he I seriously doubt he would have done much good against Royce on the ground.

    Sure. I've seen other references, but I'm out and about at the moment and can find others when I get home. http://www.graciemag.com/2012/12/chu...gracie-family/

    You're correct, though. He still likely would have gotten eaten.

    Yet I still want to see Ed roll with someone and not just drill.
