    It would lead to less takedowns = more just bleed

    Fighters can stand up more easily = more just bleed.

    Even get some creative submissions.

    I personally believe that all fighters should wear rollerskates in the octagon. They would be so much faster, and leg kicks would hurt like a motherfucker.

    They should be allowed to use broken glass wraps like in Kickboxer.

    It is a bullshit rule when you think about it

    They say the rule is to prevent broken fingers/toes. But who cares about broken fingers.toes? The fence grabber should assess the risk for themselves.

    It'll stop takedowns. Again who cares? Takedowns in wrestling take place in open space.

    fence-grabbing is so badly enforced, they may as well make it legal.

    If he's holding the fence. That's a hand he's not protecting his face with.

    This. If I"m a standup fighter and don't want to get taken down. I'm grabbing the fence at least once per fight. you can get multiple tiny grabs to help you and/or 1 huge grab and they'll never enforce it. Might as well kick the other person in the nuts or rake their eyes while you are at it b/c they rarely penalize those either.

    Can you imagine other sports if they just suggested the rules or gave warnings? Pitcher nails a batter with the baseball and the ump just walks out and gives him a warning to "keep it clean" and the play keeps on going. Football player grabs the face mask and uses it to rip a ball carrier to the ground and the ref walks over and gives him a stern talking to to not do it again.

    They should bring back headbutts as well. Then, you could have guys with knockouts via all nine limbs!

    On a serious note, I could take or leave the rule about fence-grabbing. I don't think it really protects the fighters that much, but it doesn't hurt them much, either.

    Problem is if the guy on top starts fence grabbing the guy underneath isn’t going anywhere imo

    I do agree it’s a bad rule. It’s human nature to grab the cage and everyone does it, and the attempts or enforce or rectify cage grabbing incidents are never satisfactory.

    You might as well do it since they rarely take points for it.

    I just think fighters should be granted a revolver of their choice.

    I don't know. Do people even read this?
    and allow knees to the head on the ground and stomps, and a screaming lady should do the intros of the fighters
