You catch a punch or grab their arm in the clinch, and twist their wrist (which I am guessing is considered a 'small joint', because I've NEVER seen someone use an Aikido move in the UFC) a certain way and you can submit them because otherwise you will just break their wrist, or arm, or fingers, or whatever you got a hold of. That's just my guess though, I don't see any other reason as to why small joint manipulation would be banned other than it's because it's so easy to break someone's bone like that.

steven segal would not do good in mma he moves like a bitch

he's a terrible actor. He's a mute in almost all of his films.

He would not do well. His fighting in movies isn't even that good.

He'd walk through the HW Ranks until he had a title defense against the Hulk. I love all these stupid ******* threads.

What's next, "do you think the Thundercats could out grapple the Bionic man?" "Could Kimbo do well in the UFC?" (oh wait, that stupid ass thread is already going)

Yeah, really. Might as well throw out a thread about Lorenzo Lamas also.

Seagal would give Butterbean a run for the fattest man in mma, that's about it.

He got beat up by Nick Zito, and Zito is just a ufc spectator.

But with that Segal squint, it'd be one hell of a pre-fight staredown.

we use a lot of aikido moves when we're learning self defense for tkd. but that type of fine motor finesse is probably not easy for a lot of those guys to polish, let alone the fluidity and grace that help so much with that type of movement.

Maybe small joint manipulation is a umbrella term meant to keep guys from using gray-area stuff like bee sting pinches to the quad, eye pokes, smacking the veins on the back of the hand lol.
