It was not long ago we had Penn, GSP, Silva, Shogun and Velasquez as champs with Melendez, Diaz, Jacare in Strikeforce and Uberbeem the linear champ. Almost all having a extensive bjj training or bjj base... So... What are you talking about? And besides your timeline is wrong. Coleman and Kerr were wasting peeople circa 1997, Kerr was falling out of Pride around 2k with Coleman winning the GP... Whereupon Minotaur came to power followed by Fedor.

 I don't think I explained myself. For the most part when I am doing MMA, I spend my time standing up from guard or sweeping. I have recently started trying to stay in my guard and submit people with out the benefit of standing or sweeping. I usually will not try to submit anyone in my guard. What I am working on is a different way to play an MMA guard by actively trying to submit. I will try to post a vid in a few weeks to show my progress.

I like it, too. The difference between the guard rolling and the guard while being punched in the face is enlightening.

This does make sense, I like doing this and hitting back while I'm doing it.

^^ elbows change this dynamic significantly because they can do so much damage with so little space (in tight) and because they present challenges in training (kinda hard on training partners, I think)

I have spent the past three training sessions getting punched while trying to find a way to play open MMA guard. It is hard because I can sweep a lot of my training partners so I have been fighting that urge. I think I might have something...... If you can't hold me down you can't hit me. if you are working to hold me down you cant hit me.  and from my coach..... treat punches like you know they are coming. don't treat them like a surprise. I don't know if this makes sense to you guys but I am working on it, I will let you know what happens.
