Dave Herman: 'We all know BJJ doesn't work'

by Dana Becker | source: fightline.com

Dave Herman, who is coming off two striaght losses (to Roy Nelson and Stefan Struve) fights Big Nog Saturday night at UFC 153, live from Rio de Janeiro.

"He's won 20 fights by submission - but we all know BJJ doesn't work," Herman said. "It's useless. Wrestling means you don't need to worry about jiu-jitsu. I've never lost by submission and I am not worried about it at all."

"This is my biggest fight to date. He is a legend and will look great on my record."

He is not serious. If you take him that way, you're wasting your energy. Just laugh as it's intended.

to stonedpuppy above, laying off the rules works both ways genius. allow fighters to kick/knee a downed opponent and see how far your wrestlers go.

MMA doesn't "teach BJJ". Sorry, you're confused. The same submission grappling techniques have been around for thousands of years before Brazil was even a country. BJJ is one of many disciplines that apply it. It's a popular one, that doesn't mean "MMA teaches BJJ".

Dave is a gatekeeper that's been pasted his last two fights. He's trying to generate heel heat like Chael.

What a freaking moron. He sounds just like Sonnen did. MMA teaches BJJ. So this idiot is probably so stupid that he doesn't know that he was trained in BJJ and thought it was wrestling?HAR! HAR! HAR!!!
