Will SAMBO Be The New BJJ Someday?
SAMBO is a very effective fighting style that few people use. Even though few people use it it happens to be the fighting style of the most succesful fighter in the world. Fedor said himself it makes it easier for him in fights since so few people know about SAMBO.
Now in the early days of the UFC it was a very simliar situation with BJJ. Royce Gracie was the undefeated champion similar to the way Fedor is now, and at that time very few people new his fighting style and he just dominated them with pure BJJ.
Now my question is, in say 10 years from now will everyone know SAMBO as everyone know BJJ today? Will people say Fedor was only successful as he was in his time beacsue no one knew SAMBO, as people say today about Gracie and his JJ?
Dont get me wrong, I acknowledge that Fedor is a very complete fighter and absolutly great. Im not implying he is as one dimensional as Gracie was but this is just a thought.
