Easy way to get out of a fight. GET RID OF THE GAY ASS CHOKE. I could choke someone out with that with no traning. However a gogoplata, an armbar now those take a lot of skill.
I can see where you're coming from. A guy I roll with has a gnack for guillotines, he always catches me with the bastards. Actually, that's all he does, guillotines. Whatever works for you I guess. I keep my chin tucked, he still sinks it. I hop up and hook his thighs, he still manages the leveridge. I roll back, straighten up, and squeeze the mofo as hard as I can, he still keeps it. I frikkn hate that submission. He is 6'2" and a semi-solid 290lbs though.
But, its legal, and deady effective. Though I agree its use can get quite cheap with some people, I don't think it should be banned.
I still have issues with Allistair's guillotine over Vovchanchyn. The use of the guillotine in that particular fight was, imho, very cheap.
Maybe, a three limit? Like KOs in boxing? No, thats retarded. It would have to be like that for every submission then. And MMA isn't about denying anyone's skill set. You use and win with what you have.
I've pondered about a standing eight for flash KOs in MMA, but that subject gets really sticky really quick, very circumstantial. I've come to the conclusion they (PrideFC mostly) just need better referees . . .
