Strikers love to use these lines:

"I like to go for the knockout... wrestlers play it safe"

When, in fact, a striker looking for a knockout is no different to a grappler looking to grapple. Indirectly, strikers are calling grapplers cowards when they say this shit.

But, does it mean - within the context of MMA - that a grappler can say a striker "plays it safe" because he chooses to strike all the time? As that would also sound pretty dumb too.
