Re: UFC on Fuel: Cung Le vs Rich Franklin RBR & Discussion w/spoilers
If they had been stagnant in that position for a couple minutes then stand them up but not after they're changing positions and fighting inside the guard. This isn't kickboxing with takedowns. That's san shou. This is mixed martial arts and that means every phase of the game including groundfighting and submissions. I'm not a fan of the stand up rule at all - but there are certainly some times when it is warranted. This was just not one of them.
