BE PROUD, JITZERS. THE GUARD GAME IS ON A ROLL IN MMA!
I'm talking about UFC 117 and the 5th Round triangle-armbar finish that Silva put on Sonnen. Poetic, considering Sonnen disparaged the guard game in MMA as being less than manly.
But, not so. You saw what I saw and we all saw that jiu jitz is just as handy for crushing your enemies as face clobbering. Couple that with Werdum's recent triangle submission over Fedor, and jiu jitz is on a roll!
So, walk tall, grapplers. Now would be a good time to regale yourself in that $75 Koral hoodie you bought at Worlds and head over the local Starbucks to chat up the ladies with tales of your manly closed guard.
