[QUOTE=Jay;479058]How it should be.
If striking to the face is a big issue, MMA is probably not a sport that you should continue with if we're being brutally honest. Submission grappling, BJJ, wrestling are all viable alternatives.
I dont really feel the need to fight in front of crowds which is why i am entereing the MMA and not doing shows as such. I want to compete for myself not to impress anyone else (I am not good enough for a start) I've been doing MA for a few years and its good to see if you have picked up the techniques and whatnot and its a bloody great way to keep in shape (injuries aside)I don't actually want to give people a right kicking in like some people in my class. As for doing bjj and submission wrestling that in itself is further removed from no headshots than pro rules. I like the kicking aspect and also i would like to add that getting punched in the ribs guts while trying to armbar someone is very very,very different beast to just bjj work anyone who has done both will tell you and GnP might as well be another sport alltogether most of the white and blue belt BJJ goes out of the window once soimeone is punching the shiz out of your face lol.
As i said before i dont care what it is called it doesnt have to be MMA if some guys are so precious about that title. (lets face it no-one outside of the community knows what MMA is anyway they only know UFC and cage fighting lol.
like someone said on here no problem with people fighting with the rules they want if someone wants to call me a pussy for fighting no headshots the Im a pussy i couldnt give a monkeys my missus doesn't want me to have a mashed up face and come to think of it dont either.
