    The classic non-argument of a simpleton: reduction to the ridiculous.

    We're not talking about fantasy fights, and bullshit moves, we are talking about forward momentum and legitimate efforts to harm the other individual. It's up to the judges to determine what this means.

    If you're looking for hard-nosed, absolute uniform criteria .. in a panel of separate, unique individual judges ... then you're living in a fantasy world.

    However, in the real world, most judges in a close round/fight, will tend to favor the aggressor, and the one who is at least attempting to land punches/subs ... over the defensive, back-pedaling fighter, who's covering-up and/or trying to extract his arms from the submission attempts.

    If you cannot comprehend this, and if you want to argue the ridiculous, please do carry-on.
