No TS the amount of gay people training is not affecting the use of unorthodox techniques

If knees and kicks to the head of a grounded opponent were legal, you would see a lot more things like that.

I get what you're saying and i agree
you're getting taken down over and over again you might as well throw a few shapes out there anyway and try and make something happen, like when guys who are really dangerous off their back are getting held against the cage and its getting to the end of the round, why not pull guard

Hitting someone hard in the shoulder can be pretty devastating though.

Ask anyone who has hurt their shoulder playing sports.
