Re: What technique would you apply to neutralize Brazilian Jujitsu attacker

you're somewhat correct on the trends. In the early UFC's very few people had any idea about the ground game, so you could win with just that (one eyed man in the land o fthe blind and all that). Then more ground skills came in, the wrestlers arrived, the stikers got good ground training, so the ground - while still a crucial element was no longer enough to win.

It's important to understand though that at the top level, and even many of the next tiers. those who look to be "strikers" are only able to strike because they have a strong enough ground game to allow them to do it.
