They should just do a flying armbar.

Small joint manipulation[grabbing 1 or 2 fingers, or 1 or 2 toes] is illegal because it's a lot easier to break/dislocate a person's fingers/toes simply by quickly tugging on them because there's nearly no resistance than if you would get with 3 or more fingers/toes.

Thanks for all the replies but nobody has answered my first question:

If small joint manipulation were legal, would the open palm to the face not be used?

Yes, the open palm to the face would still be used, but only by those that don't like their fingers. So no, it's highly doubtful fighters would put palms with fingers spread in the faces of their opponents if small joint manipulation was legal.

This entire thread has me dying laughing.

MMA fans are on an entirely new level of sarcasm.

I think certain fighters would try to pick it up if it were allowed. I'd love to see JDS get the belt back from Cain by bending his ring finger backwards from full guard.

"I don't just do drugs....I fucking abuse them, I be on the same shit that prolly killed Whitney Houston"

Mousasi and Reem are my fav active fighters, I try to involve them in every thread I can.

Marco Ruas used a double-fisted titty-twister on Keith Hackney...
