    i want Sambo...not because of Fedor but cuz of Sergei Kharitonov...that guy is incredible. One of my big influences.

    but my friend doens't want grappling and wants some form of Kickboxing...

    what do you guyz think?

    Kickboxing or Sambo
    Why not go with both that is what I did actually you would be doing two of the best techniques and have a very well rounded game if you did so. However IF you have to pic between the two Muay Thai is more fun and gets the testosterone pumping. After a fight you still think you can kick everones ass for some reason.

    Rite on thats what Im talkn about. Its true this guy I train with Nate He is a great wrestler thats how he started , but he lost his first fight only because you can tell he has really never been in a "Vicious Cock Fight" . Ron Burgandy. No he was skilled to fight but not a fighter.

    im 18 but i do have some knowledge in grappling. Not from just watching the fights on Pride and UFC for the past several years, but i did take up Tae Kwon Do until Orange belt, and then i decided to take up BJJ and Judo when i was much younger. I didn't really like fighting at that age, but i learned alot.

    This issue is probably deserving of a thead of its own - I may start one later. There's no doubt that a significant number of MMA practicioners came from a street fighting background. It is possible that this background helps (Rampage, Bas et al), but equally possible it hinders (think Ross vs Bisping on TUF3).

    All in all, I would say there is no evidence that suggests it is an advantage - and I would be careful about saying things like, "in many ways it helps." I've seen people messed up pretty badly fighting (some of them face to face so would never recommend it to a beginner.

    git.
    Thats true, if you never been in a street fight don't try it unless your ready.

    It goes without saying that fighting experience is invaluble but I have found it is better and of course safer to get that experience in a controled and educational environment, like school. JKJK keep it in the dojo.
