Level 10 technique with level 3 strength will get destroyed by level 5 technique and level 10 strength.
Yes and no. When the skill levels are close strength becomes the difference. 10 Technique vs 7, 8 or 9 technique then strength is going to be the difference. The Matt vs Gracie fight is an example of this. On the other hand 10 Technique will most often beat 5 technique. Mir vs Brock I was an example of this. Brock was much stronger but his lack of technique allowed Mir to get the win.
