I'm a jiu-jitsu world champion and I'm saying these things (about changes in judging criteria)... I don't think people should get grappling points for a takedown or mounting someone or getting their back. Who cares if I mount someone or have their back for four minutes if he gets out or I didn't do anything to him? It's the Ultimate Fighting Championship, not the Ultimate Grappling Championship... What happens when people fight? Someone gets hurt. You have fights now where nobody gets hurt and it's like what the hell are we watching? And these coaches, because there's money involved, convince these fighters to compete this way and it's crazy. That's another reason why I'm so pumped to get in there. I just want to show everybody what a fight looks like.
