But bottom line as Rip says is it’s always better to be stronger. You should train ground fighting, you should shoot and you should lift. They aren’t mutually exclusive so the argument is dumb.
    The context of the article is that 'big and strong' is an independent variable in preparing for interpersonal violence - of the unregulated kind. To be done alongside fight training, not as a replacement for it. Seems pretty clear to me.

    That being said Gordon would get his arms pulled off by Thor IN DA STREETZ

    If the BJJ guy jumped on his back, Thor could just throw himself onto his back on the ground. I think 200kg landing on him might make him lose his grip.

    I get that skill helps a lot, but I just don't think it can overcome that big a strength discrepancy. Or at least not 100% of the time. Of course, BJJ is flavour of the month now and everyone who does it thinks it turns them into some sort of invincible jedi. This despite the fact that more fights are won in the UFC by knockout than submission.

    There are only two ways to win an actual fight. You either run away (preferred), or you hit the other guy first, preferably with a heavy object. You should continue hitting him though.

    I would not want to get hit by this 5 times worlds strongest man. And 17-8 record isn't bad at all. Is he the best? No, but his power helps a lot. I would rather be stronger in a fight than the other guy especially if we had similar skills set. Gordon Ryan is very strong and some say the GOAT of no gi BJJ.
