    I'm not talking Lawler Woodley, but so many fights these fucking guys get hurt over and over with heads hots, then March their opponents down with hands round their waist.

    Because the sport is totally set up for this type of fighter? Look at the rules and the amount of time they fight.

    Look at the fight tonight. They clinched for 1 second and the ref broke them up....this is where the sport is going. It's now the ultimate slash tough-guy championships.

    -Number of rounds
    -small gloves
    -hard to keep a tight guard with the treat of TD
    -Many don't have an elite striking background and anyway you have to train other stuff
    -rules/ref
    -the marketing machine push brawler and finishers
