No not at all, but remember it's going to ahve prides feel, and when your emotions are flairing, and giving your all you just get into the mood of the ring, and if theres a spot where Gomi and go for a kick to the head i think he will. It has NOTHING to do with being a "moron" it will be an accicdent. Just like when UFC fighters grab the fence by reaction, THEY know the rule but emotions and reactions come first...... so dont call any good fighter a moron, because thats not what im saying..
if ANYTHING the people who i would be "calling" a moron, would be all the american people for no standing up for somethign that is clearly safe when they are trained pros, and trained refs. ALLOW THIS RULE TO HAPPEN, its a FIGHT!!! the fighter should not allow a big hoof to the face, they shouldn't WANT to be in that position.
And dont say "oohh UFC fighters to WANT to be in that position" because thats just not true, watch the Heath fight, everytime heath came in to get agrissive, O'brian would drop to 1 knee, ohh and remember when Rich on TUF told some jackass to drop to one knee!!! (he was getting made fun of, but look at what he ment, if you shoot in quick and drop to 1 knee as you shoot if the other figher tosses a knee as you shoot you win, cuz of that stupid rule)
UFC fighters abuse the rules, where as in pride its a fight!
(this isn't about who's better and whats what) its about this damn rule, if you are going to FIGHT, then you should try and end the fight any way you can.
Just like the stall rule, it's there for pride, and you get to see fast paced fights, you watch the UFC who doesn't have that rule, you have the same fight like O'Brian VS Heath.
SO STAND UP AGAINST THESE PEOPLE WHO SAY, "you aren't allowed to see this because I say so". If you don't want to watch it, then DON'T!!! its that simple people!
