What is Sambo?

Sambo is a type of Russian martial art that has its origin in the Soviet. This combat sport is practiced internationally and is a recognized style of amateur wrestling included in the World Wrestling Championships.

What Did Ryan Say?

One of Ryan's fans asked him how and why Sambo fighters dominate BJJ fighters to which Gordon Ryan replied with his reasons behind Sambo’s UFC success. He said, “Sambo guys” are more well-equipped to wrestle under an MMA rule set. Meaning they dominate the pace and direction of the fight, and end on top. And make their opponents carry body weight, forming a discrepancy in the work rate that leads to fatigue over time. plus the guys they’re fighting aren’t, in my opinion, world-level jiu-jitsu that focus on MMA, not specialists.”
