    Serious question.
    Is it against the rules to grab someones ear and twist it off their head?

    Pretty sure that would be covered by small joint manipulation

    Illegal Actions:
    • Eye, ear, or nose gouging, fish hooking
    • Pulling of hair, nose or ears
    (well those are definitely rules for ammy fights but I would assume they also are in the unified rules)

    What if you just slip a tongue in it to throw the focus off.

    I don't think it fits within the no small joint manipulation rule. And it isn't any worse than standing shoulder cranks without an opportunity to tap. Its a grey area thats ripe for exploitation. Maybe we'll see it in future.

    What about Indian burns?

    Or pink bellies?

    These... these are the questions we need to be asking.

    Well, you could. It'd taste bad though.

    I'm pretty sure its illegal but would be a really good technique to get out of a submission.

    And what if one fighter just held the ear without pulling it to stop the other fighter from moving his head. So if the 'puller' is only holding his opponents ear (say in a triangle) and the 'pullee' yanks his head away, its the 'pullee's' fault for pulling his own ear right?
