I think you guys put it better......too much drama!!..
I still watch everything.....I just look at it through a grapplers viewpoint now......
Do you guys notice that a bunch of MMA guys just plain suck at jiu-jitsu??...even with my small experience in bjj...I feel like I sit there and am like....do this...thats wide open....dont ever do that, are yo retarded!!....lol....you know what I mean......It baffles me that people that devote their entire lives and training to MMA wouldnt have a better knowledge of the submission game....is this just ignorance...stupidity?
(and yes, I know its easier said then done when youre in the ring and punches are flying at your face....)
I know what you mean; I do the exact same thing. But a guy at my gym told me that he tried rolling with strikes added and it was almost impossible to get anything. As soon as you tried to posture up you ate a bunch of shots.
Also, some guys just don't translate very well to MMA and never really get into the fight. All of this aside though, I completely agree with you! A lot of these guys need to brush up on their grappling...
