i think Matt Hughes proved against Royce that being 100% technically proficent in BJJ is no guarantee that you can defeat a stronger, less technical fighter. Jeff Monson is another example of an enormously strong fight that can use power to overcome technique.

Yes I agree.
If I compete against an equally or superiorly skilled practitioner, I have to be physically superior to beat him.

Go pickup "body for life" my Bill Philips. A great starting point so can grasp some basic knowledge on nutrition and lifting. (So you dont end up like one guy on this forum who asked why he was tired when he drinks so many energy drinks... lmao!)

Speed & strength cannot be compensated for with technique these days. Most guys train in all aspects of MMA so you need to hone your atheletic ability to maximize your ability to use your technique.

To gain strength you have to do heavy resistance movements. This would include lifting weights, throwing medicine balls, or a number of other excercises. Good luck to you in your ventures.

ive only be going for a few months as well and im even lighter (and im pretty tall) so I hear you. Ive found that just doing a lot of ab/core work has been pretty helpful, but upper body strength has been a big problem for me.

A great tip I got a long time ago was to superset squats/leg presses with upper body work, i.e. bench, curls, butterflies, etc. Why, you ask. Well, the reason is because that doing lower body work causes your body to produce more testosterone, as that region of the body has the largest muscles in the entire body, which in turn will help to build your upper body strength. Try it out for a couple months & see if it starts building your strength. Good luck to you.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu was about using leverage allowing smaller guys to beat bigger guys,you are proving what BJJ is all about when you beat those guys...refine your technique.

Yeah Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is more about technique, work on that first.

Push-ups with feet resting on a stability ball... the first few weeks you feel your body swaying all over the place, and that is weakness in the core. When I started doing them it gave me pain in places I hadn't felt pain before, and my core is extremely well developed from practising Ashtanga yoga.
