I am not saying it's not effective or that some guys do it better than others, but you don't get a black belt in throwing elbows on the ground.
Of course getting into position and posturing up is a skill I never said it wasn't, again you must learn to comprehend words better.
You misinterpret everything I say.
thats makes no sense whatsoever.
thats like saying you dont get a black belt in passing guard or throwing standing punches. i say everything is a skill in mma. and for the record i didn't see anything wrong with hendo covering his mouth...its a legit technique i've seen used by many different fighters. its a dirty trick, but theres no rule against it so its fair game imo. i'd do it if i was in the cage with someone as dangerous as silva. anyways...hate to burst your bubble, but throwing elbows on the ground is a skill. maybe anyone can do it, but it takes skill to do it well...period.
