Recently, when I've been watching MMA, less and less people maintain an active guard. I mean, seriously... People just hold their guard closed, and struggle to avoid punches. Not a lot of going for submissions and sweeps.

Opinions?

Well, for example, look at a grappling match... For example, Karo vs. Diego. They constantly sweep eachother and reverse position. That's what I like to see. Not laying on the floor blocking punches.

There is a big difference between two good grapplers that switch position than a grappler fighting a MMA fighter

Grapplers grapple. MMA fighters Grapple, Punch, Kick, Knee, GnP, Take you down, Submit and alot more so that is the reason basicly. No need to go any deeper into that. Some could do more to try and entertain the fans but that is not the main thing for some, winning and make dollars are

Haha, as in I laugh randomly sometimes.

And also, you said there is a big difference between a Grappler vs. an MMA Fighter. That makes minimal sense, considering the majority of MMA Fighters are Grapplers.

There is a huge difference considering a Grappler is 1 dimensional, and an MMA Fighter is 3 dimensional. That's not what I was saying.

I think you got confused. I'm sure we would both agree if we understood eachother. All I was saying is that anyone with a bit of grappling talent should try to use it in a fight, when on the ground.

Sorry for the misunderstanding.

What? 1 dimensional? Grapplers use ground work, takedowns and takedown defense. the only other aspect is striking, correct?
