You may not agree, but this doesn't mean I need to explain it any more, as I am not trying to convince you.

MMA/UFC sport fighitng is definitely closer to reality than the "normal" dojo. In the normal dojo you are practicing budo, or kata, or a number of things that do not approimate even closely the stress, variables, and reality of a real fight.
RBSD dojos, which train on uneven ground, different lighting, with trash on the ground, etc., which is certainly more real situation than MMA/UFC sport fighting.

..there are many other variables such as element of suprise, weapon disparity, condition of the people, number of people etc that come into play.
Definitely. I chose the ones I thought were most relevant; level of contact, and how likely the situation is to be found in real daily life.
