"Iam waiting to the day when more strikers with the same credibilities will enter mma."

I'm with ya. Not sure how that will happen though. In days of past boxing gyms everywhere were pumping out fighters. It seems these days the emphasis is almost entirely on ground fighting.
At the school I train at (for hobby) most of the fighters are entirely focused on wrestling and BJJ. When it comes time for them to fight it's kinda like, oh yeah lets spar some to get ready for this fight. No real training on striking technique or head and foot work.
