RE: WRESTLING
This is the only thread of value Karasu has ever started.

This guy's channel is great btw. I'm a BJJ guy but prefer watching this kind of stuff due to the athleticism, aggression and crazy body mechanics that are put on display.

BJJ matches are undoubtedly the most tactful, but also extremely static by nature and don't make for great highlight videos.
Judo is a better case-study momentum, off-balancing, push-pull principles and chain-attacks.
Wrestling has the best examples of determination, urgency, athleticism and opportunism.

RE: WRESTLING
not all Wrestlers are creatives which can make a Marketable MMA transition but those which can show why WRESTLING is such a formidable and often underappreciated Martial Art.

it is also the case that sometimes the best Wrestler or Judoka as example may not make the best MMA fighter while some others which may not have been a First Place World Champion are better able to employ their grappling ability under the conditions of a more complete expression of unarmed combat.

Ths should be done as an experiment.

An adult Cow weights 1500lb. I wonder at what point, the cow would become too heavy to lift?
