UFC Fighter Gets Owned At A Bar: MMA Training Does Not Automatically Make You Self Defense Capable

        UFC fighter Cody Gibson recently got pushed hard, sucker punched in the face, and punched some on the ground in a Las Vegas bar. The only words that can describe this situation is,

“Wow what an idiot. If he knew self defense he could have avoided this situation, and if not, could have easily defended that punch.”

Watch the video:

His ego got in the way and then he wanted to fight and stood there acting like he was baiting him in to fight with his fists up. All he should have done if he intended to fight was immediately kick him or punch him or attack. Also, takedowns might impress MMA judges (because they are idiots and think that matters in a fight), but takedowns don’t mean anything in a street fight unless you do something with it. Like punch the guy a lot by ground and pound or submit him. Obviously the drunk guy who beat him up did not even get hurt much except maybe a little rough landing from the initial takedown.

Many MMA guys who train at the local MMA gym think they have a social status above average people, especially anyone training in traditional martial arts. So much is said about how Taekwondo does not work on the streets. Well, why didn’t this guy’s MMA work on the streets?

Do not put your confidence in MMA or whatever trendy martial art is cool now, or any martial art for that matter. Put confidence in your ability to defend yourself. Don’t allow your ego to take over and cause you more trouble. Avoid street fights! If you can’t then take them out sooner than later. And don’t egg a drunk person on.

By the way I watch MMA and think it is cool and enjoy UFC Fight Nights on Fox Sports 1. I am not anti-MMA, just anti-MMA onlyist morons.

On The Subject Of Joint Lock Availability In Street Fights And Groin Shots

Joint locks are readily available in certain situations

        In my experience people have often said no one will hold you long enough to where you could have the ability to perform a wrist lock or standing armbar. They say it is unrealistic to drill wrist locks, armbars, elbow and shoulder locks etc. They say no one will hold you like that, or take the time to hold you long enough for you to be able to joint lock someone and take them out. I disagree and believe in many circumstances one could easily joint lock and break the wrist, arm, elbow, and dislocate shoulders in a street fighting or self defense situation. It depends on how an attacker is holding you or if he is hitting you or not. The following video shows many opportunities the person being assaulted (who happens to look like Nicholas cage lol) could have used if he had trained in martial arts and was not drunk.

I have absolutely no clue what they were fighting over or why the guy thought he needed to apprehend the other guy and hold him, and then also knee him in the balls and wait for cops to arrive. That is beside the point of this short article.

Groin shots are not always a fight ender

The man in the blue jacket was obviously kneed in the balls, and yet he was not harmed enough to cause him to drop down or fall over in pain. He did not quit and was still standing. This shows that a typical groin shot is not always going to end a fight, especially if a guy is drunk. It may or may not cause someone to keel over in pain.

Just some thoughts today on self defense and street fighting situations! Practice wrist and arm locks and shoulder locks from standing! It can work!
