There maybe less deaths and brain trauma in MMA ( obviously because you can submit people as well ) but there is a higher risk of permenant damage.
So says who? You?

I really don't like seeing elbows to the head of a downed opponent.

Love elbows when both fighters are standing, but don't want to see it as part of legal ground and pound.

I have. And I agree with brining back stomps, soccer kicks and 12-6 elbows. If it was up to me, head butts would still be legal.

In all practicality though, for the sport to continue to grow, those things are never coming back.

I agree with all of those things being legal, but only on a certain level. I think the fighters competing once or twice a year can better handle the time off due to injuries.

I don't think it is fair to ask a fighter making less than a $1000 for one fight to face the same risk(s) as a fighter making $100,000.
