    You really need to be ruthless about it. As bruce lee put it, "controlled cruelty." Thats obviously different from hating on **** but there is definately a certain "killer" mode you need to get into. I try to de-humanize my opponent but a lot of people I guess super-humanize their opponent and go into hate mode. Either way.. If some of you guys don't think this mental part of the game is important or you can go by with your own version of it. . . there is nothing much we can do for you.

    De-humanise them.

    Anyone noticed that in the new ufc game you can't keep hitting guys after you KO them?

    On the ground you can, it's pretty brutal. By which I mean, awesome.

    Everything I love is dark and brutal...

    On, and back on topic:

    What I like to do in the locker room before a fight is visualize getting beat back when I was a kid, getting jumped in high school, and all the people who've treated me like **** through life. Then I imagine my opponent did it all.

    I swear if this ref doesn't pull me off my next opponent I will beat him into a coma.

    The weak cannot stay out of trouble. If you think it is worth it to serve a prison stint, or face a lawsuit, and think paying homage to your "reptilian instinct" by failing to use the higher brain functions available to you is important, then go for it.

    That being said, I think most people do it because they aren't totally sure the guy is unconscious, and as someone pointed it, you ain't the ref.

    So what I'm hearing people say is not that they really think beating someone unconscious is ok. It's that taking the risk that they are doing that is part of the game because how the **** do you know the dude is really out? It's not "instinct" so much as a decision made to err on the side of caution.

    correct me if I'm wrong.

    Yes and no.

    I think it's ok, cuz he'd do it to me, but others may just be erring on the side of caution.

    Personally, I'd wait for the unconscious guy to come to and then stand up so we could continue on the feet because he was probably just feigning unconsciousness in order to bait me into his jiu-jitsu. I'm onto you guys...

    No you're right, I've seen several fights now where the guy was "sporting", and "gentlemanlike" and lost because of it. Be sporting and gentlemanly before and after, between the ref beginning and ending the fight be ruthless or you'll lose.

    I pulled up a random compelation of MMA knockouts It is interesting to see who goes for people and under what conditions.
