the often maligned Eddie Bravo is spitting 100% facts , in my opinion.

he says to continue ur striking and wrestling training BUT .... their will always be that guy who be able to take u down or outstrike u , so.... then what ? >> yes the guard AND not just any old shit guard !!! a very potent , destroyer guard , looking to spoil someones night.


i dont hear many other people actually breaking this simple truth down ..... i mean hell , even the best of all wrestlers sometimes end up fighting from their backs in mma .... and u hear some guys make statements like " noboddy can take me down , i was d1 !!!"

 Spot on Eddie, guys are too good defensively now, you've got to have a SICK guard game to pull guard consistently in modern MMA.

even if you aren't a sub machine/ have an attacking guard....you should be able to sweep from multiple spots.....

to be even more honest, as way of analogy .... Just as people watched royce in ufc and clammored to learn jiujitsu and the guard , as though it was a fail proof method of fighting >>

so also people now think that wrestling or striking will always save them in a fight . big problem


i agree u need the 3rd option

Eddie - In the video you made reference to around 98% of bands not having any real longevity in the music business.  Using that same percentage in mixed martial arts, which fighters (or camps) would you put in that top 2% that have the greatest potential for (successful) longevity?  

TTT
hanks in advance for your insight.

It's a shame the UFC just doesn't reward having an active guard. If you're on top and not totally unconscious then apparently you're winning there.

I have video of Eddie Bravo DESTROYING some chump that tried to pull guard in a street fight.

I've been hesitant to put it up because I'm a fan of Eddie's and am worried about the legal ramifications for him. He smoked this brazilian dude that was mouthing off.

LOL matt horowich always makes me laugh.


He is correct, but there is a big difference between guys like sass and maia, and guys like leites (Against silva).





Pulling guard is awesome, butt flopping and butt scooting is fucking dumb.

This is why I don't let my takedown defense get any better. It would take me away from my true game, guard pulling.

That was refreshing, nice insights!

The only thing i disagree with is how he states most people train for striking and wrestling and don't focus on guard, in my experience lately most people have been concentrating on jiu jitsu and striking and neglecting getting good at wrestling.....

Looks like a fun gym to train at.

great vid eddie, really can't argue. instead of people drinking water i'd love to see more cutaways of dudes pulling guard in fights but UFC would probably sue you. great vid regardless (reguardless?) :)
