Has Drysdale become a no gi advocate?


"I break jiu-jitsu into two categories – functional and dysfunctional," Drysdale said. "There's the functional stuff that will work in every arena. Then there's the dysfunctional stuff that only works for high-caliber competitors, which I kind of moved away from. It's just stuff, in my opinion, that isn't functional for MMA. I try to put my efforts into things that are functional for everything.

"I've changed my jiu-jitsu a lot. I notice it when I train with my old jiu-jitsu partners. I like it better (now)."
