Okay okay, I know Pillow Fighting is a far cry from " ground and pound" but what caught my attention in reading this article was the following....
" But while the WWE's convention of making crap up was adopted for the characters, PFL fights are a genuine combination of boxing and mixed martial arts. "
" The difference is in the training. Seasoned PFL fighters employ grapple techniques and hit the mat looking for submission holds. Amateurs, lacking formal instruction and generally too timid to tackle a stranger in front of 200 screaming fans, stay on their feet and exchange thunderous head shots."
Here's the article from ESPN, written I think with tongue firmly planted in cheek.
