In 1993, Royce Gracie showed us that to win a fight against a skilled opponent, one must know grappling. And thanks to his accomplishments, and the efforts of countless others who came after – each with their own brand of jiu-jitsu, sambo, judo, wrestling or whatever – we now have a world where even karate and kung fu schools are practicing how to fight on the ground.
But someone has discovered the grappler’s one weakness, and it’s only a matter of time before we’ll see the exploitation of the chink in the grappler’s armor in the UFC. Behold, the fartoplata!
Yeah, that’s nasty.
