This video would have been much cooler if they both had "hulk hands". Two years ago there would be legitimate speculation if one of them could have beaten Kimbo.

C'mon. Anyone with two stripes on a BJJ whitebelt would smash these kids on the mat.

And I agree about the striking.

It's just painfully obvious that they have no training.

Just to prove my point, I'm going to go through all of the technical errors that would get these guys finished against someone who knows what they're doing.

I thought about walking through a play by play of all of the things these guys are doing wrong, but after the first minute I got bored.

If you want to fight, go to a gym, train and learn the techniques. I'd say these guys have potential, but the truth of the matter is, if they want to fight in mud pits, they're not ever going to do the work in the gym that it takes to step in a cage. (I call it Kimbo Slice syndrome, and you all know what I'm talking about)

The most depressing point, for me, was their complete mutilation of the submission game. They attack a guillotine without thinking about where their legs are. They attack an RNC without locking in the hooks. It was bad, it's that simple.

u forgot to mention the complete disregard, of even keeping your hands anywere neer your face.

These kids completly suck. Period.

However, they don't piss me off the way the Kimbo debacle did. They seem like a couple of dummies who watched a few MMA fights and practiced on eachother.

Where as Kimbo was just beating up scrubs pretty badly and using that fight footage in attempt to gain some type of legitimacy.

The lack of ground skills I understand, the striking I do not. How hard is it to keep your hands up and throw proper punches? Being at least a little bit tight and controlled isn't that hard is it? I mean if you even watch boxing or any sport with striking in it youi should now the basics of how a punch is thrown, yet they always seem to end up throwing arm punches wildly with their other hand swinging at their hips. They at least tried to wrestle a little bit and pull guard and shit, the "striking" made me want to cry.

Me and my friend used to do shit like this before it was cool. Without a crowd and the gay tapout gloves mind.

Come on, it wasnt that bad. 90% of the youtube fights are worse. Its not easy to fight on a mud pit.

These kids
1) Can't strike
2) Can't wrestle
3) Can't grapple
4) Are in terrible shape

It isn't that bad, it's worse. They were so horribly inept they couldn't even hurt each other.

I wonder where they're from. You must keep in mind that some people live in really small towns. I used to live in a really small town and we could only learn how to box. If we wanted to learn something else we'd have to travel 2 hours to San Diego and obviously no one did that. So yeah, maybe these kids are from a small town where they can't get any training. It's still sad that they even attempted a "UFC" fight though.

The least they could do is buy a freakin' dvd and learn. Heck, YouTube is a good source to learn techniques.

Anyone who watched that whole clip is either brain dead or has OCD for MMA. It wasn't even a fight, It looked like they were sparring.
