Okay last night I was flipping through the channels and I come across ER: Life in the someshit. Okay, thats not the title. But its close. It is one of those RL emergency room shows, not the drama.
And H O L Y S H I T I saw some nasty.
It appears someone's brother in law attacked this dude on his riding lawnmower.
...and bit his fucking ear off.
Sucker punched him in the eye and then bit him like a dog. As the wife/girlfriend explains he bit him grrr grrr grrr *shaking head back and forth* like a dog.
They remove the bandage and this dude's ear is literally hanging on by a little piece of skin like 2cm wide. Bit his ear almost completely off.
Lets step back a moment. I know that in a self-defense situation ANYTHING GOES. I have bitten people. I have headbutted. I have kicked people in the nuts. I pulled hair. I've pulled shirts over heads. I've thrown objects. But I have never bitten a facial extremity off.
I have talked about it. But seeing this **** up close I kinda wonder. Seeing the severity of this wound I could not watch to see if they would be able to re-attach with success. Now being primarily a grappler, people think that I am susceptible to biting and eye gouging. Taking it the other direction I could also employ these tools easier than a striker. Think about it, you gonna jab, cross and nosebite? No, grapplers can do it better and easier.
Think about it, grapplers WILL get the better position. Whether it be to strike, to submit, or to bite facial extremities a grappler will be able to bite more effectively from better positions than an untrained non-grappler.
Then think about 'winning' a fight. I know a lot of people envision thier mythical streetfight as they display an awesome prowess of technical savy while they dispatch thier foes to the hordes of adoring fans and swooning women. They envision thier triumph and the stories they will tell. But seriously...can you imagine biting someones ear completely off....and then bragging about it?
Personally I can't wait til some punk eyeballs me wrong. They're gonna nickname me Mad Dog~
Grrrr Grrrrr Grrrrr!!!!
BACK OFF! I'LL BITE YOUR FUCKING NOSE OFF! GRRRR!!!
