Well for the early fights in UFC the people who represented WC looked like beginners at best who clearly had NO fighting experience. If I remember right, there was one 'WC' guy who lifted his leg and cowered back in fear when his opponent came at him. He looked scared to be in the ring, and with seemingly no fighting experience and most likely a beginner in WC. That person is pretty ignorant to get in there and fight. But i also think it's ignorant of you to judge WC off of those one or two people. I have a friend who does boxing and bjj, but can't fight his way out of a wet paper bag. I don't say MMA is bad because of that.
As far as the anti-grappling thing. It does work. It just has to be practiced with some one who knows how to grapple, so you can get down the timing, strength, leverage, etc. Not someone who thinks they know how to grapple. I've fended off plenty of wrestlers with some anti grappling techniques, granted not anyone in bjj.
so you used your anti-grappling stuff against grapplers. OK tell you what. I want you to try something. Go to any college wrestling team and try your stuff?. Those college Wrestlers are not that experienced, but be sure that they can give a real hard time. Fighters in the UFC are much more faster in grappling you and taking you down and submitting you.
I want you to try this experiment, and then tell us the outcome,
