Like anything else, there is truth to be found on either side of the argument here! One thing MMA does well, is that the training prepares an individual to handle pressure in way not often seen within many TMA schools. This isn't to say that TMA guys don't see or can't handle pressure however (trying not to make a blanket statement here).
What if/wouldn't it be great if, we could train MMA for the street? Wouldn't we have something interesting then? Well, we can, have, and do.
At the end of the day, it's ALL TMA to begin with. The only difference is how it's trained.
Hello again, CXT! Hope you're well!
