    Default Cheating or not?

    Noticed a few fights when at the start one guy offers out to touch gloves and the other just starts pounching and/or kicking. Would you call this cheating? Conner Hignett seems to be caught with this more than most, from what I have seen of him, but being a class act he dismisses it ok.

    It's not cheating as it isn't against the rules. It's very unsportsmanlike though, and a total dick move. Unless you're sure the other person is going to touch, don't bother. And even then be wary/protect yourself.

    Its not cheating as such, however its a colossal dick move. The ref says protect yourself at all times, hence why touching gloves is a mark of respect and trust, as you a quickly offering a hand. If the opponent throws a cheap dig, then technically its your own fault for not protecting yourself at all times.

    Conor is class and hard as nails, a shitty move like that did not phase him. It happen to another fighter as well on the same night, and the guy who threw the cheap shot got absolutely smashed, the whole crowd was cheering the winner.

    Dick move of the highest order, to me it says they are scared of the opponent if they need to get a sly dig in before the opponent can defend themselves, hate fighters who pull that shit - especially if they indicate they will touch gloves as well..

    Had it done to me as well but only once. Have seen it happen to Conner at least 3 times! Maybe he is so good they just cant handle him fairly.
