Yeah it's kind of a dick move. I look it it kind of like holding a guy down or against the cage with the idea of slowly wearing him down. Just boring for us fans and kind of a dick move to your opponent.

I do think it should be legal though.

Stupid question, its a great way to throw them off their game. This fight game is getting too tame, go play golf if you dont like it.

Dick move? Yes. Totally legit dick move? Yes.
There are a number of totally legit dick moves. Like putting your hand up to touch gloves and then superman pnching the hell out of someone. Illegal? Hell no. TOTAL dick move....hell yeah... way worse (a whole different caliber of dick move) than putting your hand over somoeone's mouth.

Now, choking someone out? Totally different. Did he tap? No? Keep squeezing...not a dick move. Did the ref stop you? No?...not a dick move. Yes....dick move, and perhaps assault. Yes, I know it's a combat SPORT. But SPORT requires the consent of both parties. Once he taps or the ref pulls you off, you no longer have the consent to inflict harm.

I was going to vote "legitimate technique", until I saw "funny like throwing sand in the eyes". I don't get why people who watch folks beat each other up for entertainment get irked over this.

I don't care all that much, but I think it's kind of dumb in the context of martial arts. It's one of those moves that only works because of the rules of a sport. While I'm generally against the 'd34dly str33tz' arguments, I mean COME ON! Why would you stick your hand in someone's mouth?

Highly opinionated but out of touch with the current MMA scene.
