I have seen many UFC fights go to the ground for a very long time.. Up to 30minutes actually. It is quite often a bloody ending with either one or both fighters needing severe medical attention.

Gracies are bad... no doubt. But where do you draw the line? Someone that was born into a fighting family has the upper hand regardless of which type of art they pursue.

My point was simply that I wouldn't want to be laying on my back surrounded by multiple opponents.
Notice I said Great in my comment. A lot of the fighters you see in UFC are not experts in any one martial art style, they are very well rounded. A BJJ Artist that is high in the Black Belts is not going to lay on the ground and get pummeled.

Although traditional martial arts (TMA) has deep history and tradition, it&#39;s not as practical as it used to be. From a self-defense point of view.
