Gracie, Jacare, Diaz: Jiu Jitsu Reigns at Strikeforce

It is hard to imagine a better display of jiu jitsu in MMA than what we got to see in three fights at the Strikeforce event Saturday night. A pure clinic by Roger. A great display of both top-of-the-food-chain top positioning and submission transition by Jacare. And a picture-perfect armbar by Nick Diaz to finish things off for the night.

The haterade is already being consumed in certain quarters. But the fact remains that world class jiu jitsu will beat "well-rounded" MMA mediocrity almost every time.
