But thats exactly what I do SJ! I care about the things I Love the most. After Family and friends comes Martial Art. And for me, who loves practising it and then comes home to turn on a UFC Event and to watch a true Master like Lyoto at work is very important for me yes.

I can't really change to help the World anyway. So why wasting my time with it now. Maybe someday when somebody actually listens.

BobbyCooper: I think you are also confusing two different things. Some people are just inherently more talented than others. Out of 1000 Karate fighters you will not get more than one Machida. Out of 1000 bjjers you will not get more than 1 Maia or Aoki. Guys like Forrest Griffin or Rich Franklin achieve success not through flamboyant styles or perfect technique, but by working harder than most and being tougher than most. It's not like they would be like Machida if they had gone through his experiences. Bottom line is people are different. A guy like Anderson Silva, Lyoto Machida, etc are one in a generation.

Just my 2 cents...

I agree, that not having fighters from specific disciplines kind of takes the romance away from MMA a bit. On the surface, I kind of agree with Bob.

But, watching Rory fight is so damn exciting. Its difficult to get too concerned about the future if its full of very skilled, very well rounded fighters like him.

Time will tell I guess.

Jon Jones and Rory Mac are the beginning of this CRAZY sport we love. If you love BJJ so mix then watch ADCC, this is MMA. I love it for that reason.

Jon Jones is a great guy indeed. I like ADCC as well. MMA is indeed a mixture of disciplines.
