The more I watch MMA the more I see how complex it is and how many aspects of fighting there are to master. While I agree that many fights end up on the ground in a ďstalemateĒ of sorts (neither fighter being able to pass guard, get a submission or do any significant damage) but every fight starts standing up.

Iím biased towards Muay Thai because itís what most of my training consists of and the discipline I enjoy the most. If I had to pick a discipline to be great at for MMA it would be wrestling.

MMA at a high level requires you to not just master grappling, submissions, striking, takedowns but also setting up transitions, defense and deception. Iím enjoying the complexity and multidimensional aspect of MMA while at the same time I love the simplicity, power and rhythm of Muay Thai.

Apples and Oranges and the more I watch and participate the more open I am to other styles (or at least some of the techniques they offer).

Watch an MMA fight sometime to see a fighter use their striking to setup a takedown, watch a fighter throw a submission to help advance their position or fend off a submission.
MMA is very different than Muay Thai and far more than just ground and pound.

Frankly i would settle for kickboxing at his point. To my understanding Full Rules Muay Thai isnt allowed in the US or was it most states? i cant remember why but i think its mainly a insurance issue. The chances of Muay Thai being big on tv are slim. K-1 has a better chance but is still slim.

Muay Thai on G4? awesome.
