"Better" in what way? Your question implies, "better" in fighting. Some higher ranks are better in concistent practice and discipline because it take time to get there, but it doesn't necessarily mean a better fighter. Street fighters have a very different mind set than most martial artists. Remember that training is not sparring, sparring is not fighting, fighting is not combat.
