    Would be too easy to hold people against the cage. You just clinch them and hold on to the cage.

    I loved watching guys like Coleman and Kerr smash people with the Headbutt.

    There needs to be traps inside the octagon like in Battlebots

    If you could grab it and use your other hand to strike the back of the head, crotch sniffing tactics would cease to exist.

    That idiot Rogan wants to make MMA more realistic by removing gloves and allowing headbutts but conveniently ignores grabbing the cage which is arguably the easiest and most effective way to stop a TD.

    '
    It's funny that you use the Tank Abbott gif. His fight with Scott Ferrozzo was one of the reasons why grabbing the cage got banned. It was seriously Ferrozzo holding Tank against the cage for the majority of the match.

    If grabbing the cage were allowed, the wall and stall strategy would become even more dominant, and the fights would be way more boring It's a horrible idea TS. Sorry.

    Yeah seems pretty random

    You can use the cage to lean on, but not grab? Why not. Random

    Agreed. Wrestlers have too many advantages.

    Fence grabbing stalls action just watch early UFC's. I think it's a good rule

    Lol in a street fight you’re grabbing every damn thing you can get. If you’re fighting by a fence on the street you wouldn’t grab it if someone was taking you down?

    I know when I’m in a street fight if I put my hand down I can’t get kicked in the head. Lol c’mon that’s not the justification for any of the rules, it’s the opposite. Rules are to make it less like a street fight so they can be sanctioned by athletic commissions. Before the unified rules there was no fence grabbing rule in UFC
