well, i think i may have seen someone where shoes at one time in the UFC but i could be wrong. I know certain guys where them in PRIDE. I know this much if you wear shoes you can get better grip on the mat, possibly making your punchs more powerful b/c you can push off that foot for more power. Thats the only advantage i know. as for disadvantanges your right when you say it takes less punishment off of your kicks and stomps etc. and it also makes you more likely to get caught in a leg submission b/c your opponent can get real good grip on your shoes..........................
