Many will be attracted to striking, at which point grappler's will gain the edge back. There are soooooo many great grappler's right now, but striker's seem to have an edge right now. At no point did I ever say there are no good grappler's, and at no point did I ever say you don't need to have grappling skills ( they are paramount in MMA ), I only hold the OPINION that strikers are on top right now.
