Many of these boring wrestlefeckers would get caught if they would need to posture up to start their g&p.
I agree with this. Elbows sort of ruin the beauty of the ground game.
BJJ isn't dead. Thing is everyone knows BJJ now a days. It is getting much harder to find the subs. But BJJ as a whole is still alive in defense and positioning.
