The only rule I want changed is that garbage Stand Up rule, that's the coward's refugee for strikers. If you can't get Jon Fitch or Ben Askren off of you, tough shit. Should have worked on that sprawl.
I agree to some extent, i think the wrestler should have to stay busy with some GnP, i dont think any1 should be able to win a fight just taking someone down and holding on to them for dear life and not creating any space or trying to at least improve position. Im not saying this is what fitch does, he actually stays quite busy and he destroyed bj

Still i think a fighter should always be looking to finish or do damage, this is also valid for strikers that simply strike just enough to be ahead on the score card and then just use "footwork" to avoid the fight

But i agree there should be no stand ups...:also i think its good you dont get points to defend, the objective is to be offensive, you should only defend to get a chance to be offensive, makes sense
