Who said that training off a grab was a waste of time because no one ever grabs in a "real" fight?
Exactly. In these fights, they usually blow through all kinds of attacks and ranges, quickly and unpredictably. They might start off in striking range, then go to clinch range, grab and wildly swing like madmen (or women), fall down to the ground, get up from the ground, kick, stomp, run, tackle, and everything else under the sun. Total chaos. I found it to be pretty eye opening.
