Demian Maia: ADCC rules are the best

Demian Maia in his interview with  Mat Therapy Podcast, amongst other things he shared his thoughts on rules: “The main thing about jiu-jitsu is they need to simplify the rules. Like IBJJF jiu-jitsu. For me, ADCC rules are the best. It’s easy to understand. You’re on bottom you flip the guy over on top that’s 2 points can be a sweep can be a flip over. That’s the principle .”

Maia also talked about sub only vs points matches: “I like both. I think there is a space for both. They talk about sub only for many years now. It’s not a new thing. In Brazil, in the 90s there ware some championships that were like that. Half an hour, an hour. Renzo Gracie fought like that. ”
