I'm easily twice as strong as my trqainer shane, and I have about 45 pounds on him. I've submitted him once in about 40 fights. I mean, sure it's a big factor if the other guys huge (ala lesnar/mir) but nost of the time in my experience, if you get into a submission he's not going to power out of it if you do it fast enough and with enough technique. I'm not saying it's not going to happen and I'm not trying to troll or anything, I'm just saying in like 90% of cases, technique is much more powerful than sheer strength, so if I train more for technique than being big and strong. I usually do some meduim lifting and quite a bit of core training.
