    Or he's on the payroll for the International Elbow Surgeon's Organization.

      I have skim read this so I apologise if this has already been mentioned but breaking peoples joints is illegal ANYWHERE. You just have to answer to a different authority if caught.

            It clearly isn't illegal EVERYWHERE since there have been multiple instances of wrecked joints in MMA and no one has been fined or arrested.

              yeah.. about that how does the legal part of the ufc work? if a fighter kills another fighter for instance.. could he in theory be prosecuted according to the laws of the country he is in??? hypothetical..

                Nope. Your precedent in this case comes from boxing, I believe it's similar to the legal rule of "consent", that keeps from filing, for example, assault charges related to being punched in the face in a boxing match or tackled during a football game.

                    If it was one of those unsportsmanlike, after the bell things or a choke held a few seconds after a tap, there would be trouble. But under normal circumstances, the fighters are legally protected.

                      Wristlocks in mma/ufc ?

                      How come you never see wristlocks in mma/ufc ? Does anyone have a youtube vid of someone tapping someone out with a wristlock in a profesional fight ?

                        And while we are on the topic, how come we never see more flying spin kicks in the octagon? Or dragons? Dragons would be cool.

                          but wristlocks actually work, police, bouncers etc use them often.
                          I was recently tapped out whilst "rolling" with someone in a bjj club by a wristlock - it hurt.

                            I was under the impression that they were illegal...then again, I was under the impression that "instant" joint breaks were illegal as well so what the hell do I know.

                              But they are very low percentage, there usually has to be a huge skill gap between fighters in order to pull one off. Ive only ever seen them done by experienced people to noobs.

                                Not really - I tapped him out with ude garame a minute later. I just wasnt expecting it - hardly ever see them so I havent really trained to defend them.
                                Perhaps its because its harder to catch a wrist than an arm - but maybe its just because people just dont train them.
                                You never see people win with standing armbars in Judo - but we have a mate who specilises in just that and has won many comps with it. Just because you dont see it often doesnt mean its not a possible effective technique .
                                Apparently Royce Gracie won a UFC fight with a wristlock - anyone got the vid ?
                                Also youd think the cops and doormen would go for a technique that was more effective and required less of a skill gap - after all they have a lot to lose if it goes wrong...
