better have those tranquilizers on the ready, because Im pretty sure the bear wins at least 4/5 times vs a pro MMA fighter, and the lion at least 19/20, and they won't know they are supposed to stop when the guy is unconscious/bleeding to death.

It would turn MMA too much into pro wrestling if they were to ever do this. Plus it could lead to severe injuries if you knock down one of the opponents and you double teamed the remaining fighter on the other team.

I don't think anyone is suggesting both fighters from one team be in the ring or cage at the same time. that is not what tag team is. you would not have two guys beating down on one guy at one time

Only if the teams have matching shorts and a team name like the Midnight Express, Fabulous Freebirds, or the New Age Outlaws. You know, real tag teams.

LOL, are you sure you know what a bear is? Both win 100/100 against any human on the planet.

Actually there have been noted cases where REGULAR people (even children and the elderly) have bested very dangerous animals in desperate situations. I would guess an above average mma fighter is faster and has better reactions than a bear (and much better sight). Throats and eyes are always vulnerable. As I stated, I still think the bear wins most of the time, but a trained fighter still has a chance at incapacitating a bear via being faster and utilizing weak spots where a bear no can defend. If we are talking playing by mma rules against eye pokes and such... well, thats kinda ridiculous. Try teaching a bear to play by rules

Here I figured if someone was going to laugh at my made up chances, they would laugh at a 1/20 chance of beating a lion. A lion will be faster/better reactions than a fighter. Much harder to exploit a weakness. Who knows, you might be close to right, but with cases like a 70 year old man getting jumped by a full grown leopard and ripping its tongue out with his bare hands, I still maintain that an mma fighter would win once in awhile

in which corner is the tag rope?

does the 5 second rule apply?

what happens if the ref is ko'd?

do guys have to hop the fence when tagged in or are they already in the cage?
