    I have no issues with them.
    It is simply a useless rule as it happens to be broken constantly.
    But I do prefer a good brawl more than laying for some minutes hardly even going for position, let alone submissions or strikes.

    If this is real, this should have been ruled a no contest. Tony Hawk should get an ass whopping.

    If you're Conor, herb officiates your fights and allows this and more already.

    If the refs enforced the rule we would no longer see fighters constantly grabbing the fence. If every ref took a point away from every fighter after the second fence grab you would no longer see it happening. I also believe the rule of fence grabbing should be slightly altered. If a fighter grabs the fence to prevent themselves from going down the fight should be stopped and time called. The fence grabber should have to lay on their back and his opponent should place on top in half guard and the fight should be restarted from that position.
