That's the future. Down the road I see people training specifically for MMA, doing a combination of kick boxing, jiu jitsu and wrestling. Fighters won't all be just an expert in one field but more diverse. Back on the topic of Okami, this is a sleeper for fight of the year (if not, we'll see a highlight finish of some variety). Okami, like you mentioned, has a lot of potential and a future champion in my opinion.

That's not the future. That's the now. I've been training hard since September, and I train a fusion game, that's for sure. I wake up in the morning, run, then I hit the weights. Then in the evenings, I get hands on with BJJ, Boxing, Mui Thai, wrestling...etc.

You can't make it in the MMA world with only one style, no matter how much you perfect it.

I guess I should have phrased that differently. Most mma fighters today have trained in one field, like a Koscheck for example. Did wrestling his whole life and now introduced in the mma game, and now develops striking and submission skills. So what I was getting at is that kids and others will start training in all fields of mma and aspire to enter that field. I've done kick boxing and TKD since I was 11 and only the past year and a half I've started Jiu Jitsu.

Yeah, that I can see. And you're absolutely right. I was a kick boxer and wrestler, then started BJJ, and from there ended up in MMA.

If Okami gets the fight on the ground, he wins. Swick can't hang with him on the ground.

Swick can definitely get the KO standing up. But I really don't think he can hang on the ground with Okami, and you've gotta believe Okami is gonna take it there.

I was training the same way(yeah for shoulders...) but RIGHT NOW fighters will still be dominant if they are elite in one area(crocop,matt,) but we are seeing the evolution in fighters that are much better rounded.

10-20 years and we are going to have the most amazing crop of mma prodigy fighters.
