    For the sport of MMA I totally agree, but as for a BJJ aspect alone he is ridiculous on the mat with his transitions and sweeps.

    @5:14 its crazy how good Maia is. That he could do such a basic move to a BB and make him just fall off like that.

    I think thats what competition has proved. Its the basics that work and count. The winners are usually those who have the basics down to such an insane degree that it is impossible to counter

    Or as Roger Gracie says 'simple things work just as well as the complicated things, but those flying things are the harder part' :p
