Pure bjj in the ufc

How would a very talented pure bjj/grappler fighter do in the UFC. No real striking skills but extremely good at ground fighting.. as it seems grapplers > strikers.

BJ Penn entered the UFC as pretty much a strictly BJJ fighter, since then though the UFC has evolved and a fighter would need at least some kind of striking base even in the basics to survive. although Shinya Aoki has maintained a fairly decent career in Japan using pretty much strictly grappling but that is due to a phenomenal ability to utilize his BJJ from any position including some that he is forced to reduce to in order to get his opponent to the ground once he has somebody he needs to hold on and take it to the ground regardless of the position it leaves him in.

It only works in mma if the guy wants you play the game. It's very very difficult to keep someone down with you on the bottom. A lot of amazing grapplers have been nullified by his opponent just refusing to be involved. Look at how easily Gil Melendez neutralized Aoki by just refusing to engage.

Ask Leites and Magalhaes. And to some extent Maia.

Could you be more specific? With no MMA experience and only BJJ skills right?
