You can't stomp a guy out or kick them on the ground, yet UFC is real FIGHTING?

    What kind of bull**** is this? I didn't realize those were the rules. That favors wrestlers tremendously.

    That gives them a free ride to basically wait on the ground in the fetal position like a coward homosexual, like Inoki did with Ali.

    Carwin would have destroyed Brock if he coulda stomped him out. I'm not sayin I like that type of ****, but all those UFC guys are sayin, "It's a REAL fight."

    ****, that isn't a real fight. People stomp people out in a REAL fight, if you wanna keep it REAL.

    Either way it's cowardly as all fights should be fought standing up with your fists, but still Carwin would have stomped Brocks head in.

    Although you have expressed it rather badly, in a way I kind of agree. I didn't enjoy watching someone getting stomped out in Pride, not at all. But it does detract from the mixed martial art form that a fighter can see a clear opportunity to land a kick or a knee and end the fight cleanly and conclusively, yet have to hold himself back from taking that opportunity, and then get outgrappled shortly after. I don't really have a strong conviction on this, just voicing some thoughts.

    ****s sake. :-(

    For the one thousandth time some idiot claims MMA or UFC is "real" fighting... Its not, nor is it supposed to be looked at as such. It is a combat sport that lets you utilize every part of your body, not just your fists. :wink:

    If you wanna keep it "real" then give them knives. People stab people in "real" fights. Or how about we arm all of the fighters with Glock 17's? People get shot in "real" fights.

    You're so ****ing boring and your hate for wrestlers is ridiculous. :lol:

    Carwin would have destroyed Brock had he fought smart, but he didn't and Brock capitalized. What was Brock supposed to do after he was rocked? Stick his chin out and say "finish me"?

    Look Hendo, I come to the MMA forum because it is not the General Forum and there is actually intelligent discussion going on here. If you would be so kind as to not pollute it anymore and get the **** out it would be greatly appreciated, because it seems that the IQ of any thread you post in dramatically drops by at least 20 points.

    You just realised they were the rules!:patsch

    Did you just notice they have different gloves on too?

    Check Hendo's post history - another lounge lurker trolling the MMA forum with stupid topics - hopefully the mods ban him.

    I do think Hendo is an idiot but I agree and as a matter of fact have voiced the same opinion before. Soccer kicks, headstomps and knees to the head of downed opponents would balance the obvious advantages that wrestlers have in American MMA.

    Knees to the head are used as a weapon more by wrestlers than against them.

    It does provide a nice way to punish a failed shot, but it's not like it hurt wrestlers, same with kicks and stomps; the guy who's better at putting the other guy on his back is going to have more opportunity to stomp.

    I thought the ignore function prevented one from seeing someone's threads. Oh well. The UFC operates under sanctioned rules for mixed martial arts and is a fighting sport akin to boxing. Where boxing uses punching, MMA uses punching, kicking, knees and elbows as well as grappling and submission holds. In direct comparison to boxing, mixed martial arts is a much closer representation to "real" no holds barred combat. MMA is still a sport and as such is not a "real" fight where anything goes. A real fight is where a guy's buddies will come out of the next room at a moment's notice or where someone might grab a broken bottle or a gun. Real fighting as it is is an anything goes environment where one has to be prepared for anything. It is best to not fight at all and use one's intelligence to circumvent potential dangers. So in summation Bruce Lee once described his art as "the art of fighting without fighting" and I say so should we all.
  10. Pride rules definately rules.

    Strikers do face an unfair disadvantage. The amount of times they sprawl and must want to knee a guy in the head or start stomping on him.

    Unfortunately, there has to be some rules. Pride looked a second away from numerous deaths. It looked so brutal but fun.

    Well if it was a "real fight" then why even give them gloves and why in the holy world of shits would you throw a ref in there???? Simply let the two walk in and then only one walks out. Is that what you would like to see???

    Nobody wants to see stomps and soccer kicks, sorry. No way that **** would fly in the mainstream market.

    Yeah because Lesnar proved wrestlers can take serious punches and got outstanding chins.

    Stomps wouldn't hurt people...
