Thing is Martial arts have generally become diluted over the years. To survive they have to adapt to the times and that means becoming a sport. Some martial arts will do better than others, but generally no... 99% of grandmasters are fake anyway, and your friend is a dumbass.

Would someone in his prime with the knowledge of a grandmaster drop bombs in MMA? maybe. I would not count him out because he only knows one disipline thought because His discipline is standing striking. Even if he was not elusive enough to stuf a TD every round starts off with the fighters on their feet which gives the edvantage to any striker. This is one of the reasons i dislike rounds when seeing who is a better fighter. I think late finishes do not show who would win if there was no rules and these people met on the street. But a any 80 year old person would be murdered in a cage with most of the fighters out there. Maybe it would be fun to put like to old people one who knows Karate and the other Tae Kwon Do just for bragging rights and for the amusement of all the disturbed people liike me out out there who would think this hillarious.

What is "grandmaster" a euphemism for in this post?

Also, a trained MMA fighter would take out an old grandmaster anyday.

"grandmasters" are nothing more than geriatric cult leaders with flashy poses and ridiculous myths gained from cheap parlor tricks (weakened tiles, boards etc.) but zero actual fighting skills or experience. Traditional martial arts without being practiced in real or sport combat get diluted and impractical over time, and grandmasters epitomize this. They'd get torn to pieces by any decent fighter, let alone a UFC caliber opponent.

Of course, the MMA guy (or any other trained young guy) will beat the grandmaster of any martial art - considering the age of grandmaster like 60 or more...BUT, the role of the grandmaster is not to beat everyone around - he knows how to do it, but he has not suitable body for that anymore...HIS role is to keep the martial art going, teach the youngsters and guide them to be a better persons and so on - the martial art would be nothing without the grandmasters, but the MMA would easily continue without one warrior.

As much respect as I have for those Grandmasters out there I seriously don't think they'd take a GSP, Machida or Silva. I think if any of the top MMA boys even landed a clean punch the masters wouldn't have the chin for it. However if there were some comprimised rules then it, perhaps, could be a little more open...
