Ive actually been taken to the ground in a fight and put a guy in a triangle and choked his ass out. Ive never had any kind of training too. I think its just you eventually learn that in certain situations their are things you can do that other people who have no knowledge of bjj wont be looking for.

and if he had friends they would have stomped on you. should watch Bas Rutten's Lethal street fighting

Bas Rutten's Lethal street fighting DVD is actually serious advice if you are only worried about street fighting. it teaches all kinds of crazy stuff you would never see in an MMA fight

Like getting the best from each one, CC strikes, Fedor's submissions, Shogun's stomps, Rampage's grapples, Silva's knees, could this really help me in a fight?

No not really.
I used to tell this to kids who took "karate" at the YMCA and i say it to you now.
You can watch or study fighting all day long, but at the end of the day it doesnt prepare you for getting punched in the face. You want help getting better at fighting?
PRACTICE

Well... I'm a big fan of studying video to see how good fighters do things. But as far as just watching fights and not actually training, I think the most tangible thing you will realize and learn from doing that and emulating those people in a street fight is this:

You will find out very quickly that YOU ARE NOT Cro Cop, Fedor, Shogun, Rampage, etc. Unfortunately this realization will probably be accompanied by some sort of violent beating at the hand(s) of people in a setting far removed from a cage or ring sans referees, restarts, warnings or disqualifications. Besides, those fighters were able to obtain the sort of skills they utilize in the ring/cage from years of constant training and from being superior athletes.

So if all you do is watch fights and not train, you'll probably learn just enough to get yourself hurt.

How would a 13 year old boy know this? The street fights you have will only consist of pushing and trash talking.

I say it'll do more worse than good, especially if the guy your fighting has a gang.

Well thanks for the input, its obvious I will never be at the level of those top fighters but as someone said I may know what to do in certain situations.

I have been watching all of "Bas Rutten's Superior Free FIght Techniques" and "Lethal Street FIghting" vids, and I will try to practice, emulate, and train with all those techniques, that's the best I can think of.
