    I watch it if I'm with friends, who ppv a lot of it. I used to like it more. Many fights inevitably go to the ground. Admittedly I suck at that, but I never thought it was fun anyways, and especially not fun to watch.

    ground is the best part, takes the most skill.

    I can appreciate it, but it doesn't play to my strengths. I like to move on my feet, and hopefully strike to end things quickly. I don't even consider myself strong. I have long limbs, which helps with striking power. Actual brute strength like I'd need to wrestle or fight on the ground isn't there. I never formally fought like that, but the times it happened with normal people, I almost want to immediately give up. lol.

    The best way is keep the fight standing and end it from there. I agree with you because you never know if the guy has friends or a knife or whatever. But if you know some ground work it could save your life since it's the most vulnerable position to be in and is where most(serious) fights end up going anyways. Personally I just enjoy BJJ for the sake of it so I'm naturally good at it It's more of a passion for me.

    You should leave the thread, it's clearly not meant for you.

    That's like comparing apples to airplanes.

    Having worked on my stand up game, wrestling, and ground game, I wouldn't say any one of them "takes the most skill".

    They just take different skills.

    BJJ was partially developed to give smaller combatants a chance against larger opponents. Technique beats strength every time.

    Having worked on all three as well jiu-jitsu takes the most skill and is the hardest to learn by far, most people who are seriously into mma will tell you this.

    Really?

    The number of techniques might be greater with BJJ, but the techniques them selves were far easier to learn for me, than learning to properly perform a Muay Thai roundhouse.

    It's easy to get a basic level of understanding with stand up. It's harder to master muay thay in my opinion than it is BJJ.

    They are all hard for different reasons.
