Rubber Guard in MMA

I was wondering why we don't see much use of the rubber guard in MMA as it's intended? I don't know much about the rubber guard otehr than what I've youtube'd and heard from Eddie Bravo and looking into 10th planet. It seems like it would be effective and I'm just curious on why we haven't seen it used more widely? I train in traditional BJJ and No-Gi but I would really like to add some 10th Planet stuff but I want to make sure that it's effective. Hence, me asking why it's not used. Is it too dangerous? Are fighters just not familiar with it? Is traditional BJJ just better? Your thoughts please. It would be great to hear from a 10th planet guy if any post on here.

BTW, we traditionally beat 10th Planet guys at tourney's but that could just be the area.

Thanks!

Because you have to be pretty flexible to be able to pull your leg up that high.

That's what I initially thought but then I realized the majority of Fighter's are either Muay Thai practitioners or BJJ practitioners. You HAVE to be pretty flexible to be good at either of those disciplines. Even in wrestling you have to be flexible. I've only been training for 7 months now, granted I go 5 times a week for 2 hours a day, but I am now very flexible when at first I wasn't. Any other thoughts? Thanks for the reply.
