I think this video nicely sums up much of what is wrong with modern MA.

I guess I am some what outspoken against BJJ and MMA as fighting arts as opposed to sport (love them as sport) however this nicely makes my point. What would have happened if....
1, the man's friends helped him?
2, there was anything unpleasant on the ground?
And really what is the point of provoking a fight with a cheeseburger obsessed fool? The BJJ player was just lucky his opponent couldn't fight and didn't bite.
P.S. I know he could have used some ground and pound but it still would have been to long immobile and vulnerable to others and taken to long.
Even if you disregard morality the fact is you would end up in jail. If a guy comes at you and you punch him you could say its self defence but if you the wrestle him to the ground get in a dominant position and repeatedly pound his face I don't think you would have a good defence case.
There was no reason for this fight.
