Josh Barnett: BJJ NOT a fight, boxing is 1/3 of a fight

Josh Barnett recently attended a BJJ tournament, and offered his thoughts, via Twitter.

Just overheard, “How many fights did you have today?”. The answer is none. You’ve had zero fights today. Doing BJJ is NOT a fight.

@TheErikHammer
well I just heard “sweet I get a medal because my guy did not show up.”

Such a proud victory.

I just watched two grown men jump in the air at each other and start scissoring. They scissored each other in mid air. And I paid to get in.

Boxing is a fight. 1/3 of a fight maybe but still a fight. To me for something to be called a fight it must involve striking your opponent.

Do you think a BJJ match is a fight? How about a professional boxing bout?

Why?
