    how is that preventing Kondo from taking him down if hes gettin his face stomped in?? lol

    People holdin on to the Cage happens more, cuz no one is there takin there hands offa the cage.. and they get away with it too.. alla Tim Sylvia/Assuerio Silva.

    I've got an idea!.... an electric charge on the octagon fence of minimal voltage.

    i like both.
    I thought the octagon was ok live, but when i went to real deal the view was much better, 8 sided ring would be almost same problem, too many turnbuckles.

    haha or maybe grease and the electric charge on the fence. I'd pay just to see Tim Sylvia grab onto the fence, get shocked and then slip on his ass.

    If you grab the cage the other guy should get a free shot at you with your hands in your shorts.

    its not so much that kondo could have won the fight cuz of this because assuerio would not have won either but its a form of cheating also and i look down on both..

    Why wouldnt of assuerio won? if he had Tim Sylvia on the ground he would of beaten him, that fight was close standing.. scoring a takedown woulda pushed the decision to assuerio's side, plus Assuerio is a BJJ fighter, and hes 6'2 IE: Reach advantage wouldnt matter on the ground.. he could of submitted Tim or GnP.

    There is no reason for the ref to take Wandy's hands off the rope when the fights gonna end in a split second anyways
