They say there is a chance you can jump out of a plane at 30000 feet without a parachute and survive. Happened once to a guy, both parachutes failed, hit the ground smack and still survived without any permanent damage.
Lets start a jump from a cliff train!
But Bonnar, and everyone else, knew that a match of grappling skills wouldnt bode well for him, and it didnt.
Your analogy is stupid. Let me correct it. Bonnar was on a plane that is ready to crash. Grappling is like staying on the plane, which is almost certain death (losing). Standing and scrapping and looking for a flash KO is like jumping out, and hoping you hit a small pond or something.
