agree that it changes the outcome sometimes** but the cage is there - most of the time it's just a natural reaction to crab something, same thing happens in the ring with rope grabbing**
People subconsciously grab whatever is out-there sometimes it's thin air

The only way to go is make cage out of fiberglass or something

it may be really hard to stop yourself from doing it but these guys are professionals and the only way to stop it is to make them train for it when they know it's an automatic point loss no questions asked**

100% agree** In order to stop it, you need a sufficient penalty to act as a deterrent** automatic point reduction, and placing the fighters on the ground would soon put an end to it

So to be clear, it can change fights, right?


In all seriousness, I think it should be a warning the first time, no matter how minor the grab, and 1 point off the second time, no matter how minor the grab**

How do you train to stop doing something that you do instinctively?

The same way you train not to bite ur nails

You sparr in an electric fenced cage


No but in all seriousness I agree that the only way of stopping this would be that every ref seen fence grabbing point deduction

In all cases
