Much of it is extremely inefficient and counter productive to the economy of motion that combat requires. The one aspect in which it can succeed is the element of surprise. When you train for hours every day, you develop subconscious reactions to movements you drill. Deliver an unusual strike that a guy doesn't have time to mentally process, and you have a strong chance of landing it at least once (Silva v Belfort, Henderson v Pettis, etc).

The subject of the thread is Capoeira IN MMA, which by all logic means an integrated approach. It's unfortunate that some MMA fans (Particularly some of the younger ones) have the mentality of trashing an art because the art is not itself MMA rather than digging into it and finding what it has of value in it, which is the essence of MMA in the first place. We develop an integrated approach (that continually grows) by respecting the arts out of which that integrated approach will be built and thereby learning what we can from them.

This post threw me all the way off lol. Then I realized this thread was made in 2012.
Moreover, Anthony Pettis DEFINITELY uses capoeira techniques. Great great fighter
