“In my opinion, jiu-jitsu fighters have a great deal of experience in the art they practice. They are aware of how to make the game more leisurely. You are well aware of how to dawdle. The vast majority of the time in mixed martial arts competition, the objective is to win via knockout, right? Therefore, we require more of that in jiu-jitsu. We as a pair have that, and each of us has that aggressive nature, and that is exactly what it comes down to. You’re just going in for the kill, aren’t you? [beginning at 2:10]
