I did have a little "encounter" with a wrestler last night and I just want to say that he went in for a leg takedown and, as I've seen alot in MMA, he forgot that I have knees and he ended up eating one of my kneecaps.

There has to be some caution taken when you're in an MMA fight because you aren't just going to able to clinch with your opponent. People catch elbows and knees and shins all of the time rushing into takedowns. That's why, if you ever watch Royce Gracie this is something to look for, you have to throw a kick out there to distract your opponent while you go in for a clinch.
