Lay and Pray. Lay and Pray is the opposite of ground and pound. Lay and Pray consists of getting your opponent on the ground and stalling a decision the entire fight by LAYING on him and PRAYING to win a decision. It's quite cheap and very gay.
The phrase was first coined by Pride announcer and all around MMA God Bas Ruten.
The Lay and Pray was founded and mastered by MMA fighter Tito Ortiz. The term was also coined to describe his fight style, which is quite frankly, the most boring style of fighting in the world and gives new fans a bad impression of MMA.
"Did you see the Tito Ortiz Wanderlei Silva fight yesterday? Yes, it was the worst fight I've ever seen in my life. Tito Lay'd And Pray'd his way to a decision. Talk about some BS." Tito is the Lay and Pray King. He is also A HUGE Douche Bag to boot.
Commonly used phrase in MMA, when a fighter takes their opponent down and lays on them, and prays they keep them there for fear of them getting back to their feet and beating the shit out of them.
Man this fight fucking sucks. All Brock Lesnar does is lay and pray. BOOOOOOO!
