MMA Future Evolution 2: MMA Tete-A-Tete with Dallas Winston and Kid Nate

In this video, Kid Nate and Dallas Winston talk about the cutting edge of MMA grappling including: the importance of ground and pound, elbows from the guard, combat sambo, Olympic judokas, catch wrestling, front chokes and advanced BJJ concepts like the 50/50 guard, rubber guard, and novel submissions like the twister, calf slicers and more.

I'm back with another installment of the MMA Tete-A-Tete: Coarsening the Discourse. Bloody Elbow's own preview specialist Dallas Winston joins me for this edition as we discuss the future evolution of MMA grappling.

As always if you enjoy this sort of gum flapping, subscribe to the MMA Nation YouTube channel.

We chew over a couple of techniques that Dallas thinks are going to have a bigger and bigger impact on MMA in the short term:

* Improved ground and pound

* Elbows from the guard

Then we segue into a discussion of successful MMA fighters with somewhat untypical (ie non-BJJ, non-wrestling) backgrounds:

* Khabilov and Volkov and combat sambo

* Rousey and Hawn and Olympic judo with a digression on the no-gi throwing innovations of Karo Parisyan

Then we talk about two trends in jiu-jitsu and their potential to impact the sport:

* the 50/50 guard and advanced leg locks

* Eddie Bravo's rubber guard system

From there we get into a discussion of "gimme submissions" and ways wrestlers can improve their submission game:
* Front chokes - d'arce, brabo, the Dave Schulz headlock

* Catch wrestling and neck cranks

Then we wrap it up with a look at some rare submissions that have been getting taps at the highest levels:

* Calf slicers

* Neck/face cranks

Enjoy!
