    Bringig back the street to MMA?

    Ok, here are some of my thoughts why it should be done;

    - Street is always street, do you really need more reasons to it?

    And after this - we can safely make a passage to the second phaes, that is - HOW it should be done

    Basically I see two ways of how a MMA organization/promotion could become anointed with the royal blood/lifeforce of the streets;

    1. Selecting only fighters that have more streetfullness than technical abilities in them, that is; they have trained more bench press and squat than they have trained butterfly guard or jumping front kick, they will simply do a bicep curl if caught in a straight armbar, they simply dont do straight punch cause punches lose all the power when not thrown in a 180 degree wild swining arc also they definately DONT put their knee on the ground when going for takedown, doing like this will fuck you up in the STREET

    2. Simply make the rules favour the most streetish techniques f.e allow soccer kicks on downed opponent and likewise ban all submissions except neck cranks and rnc

    Ok, these 2 suggestions have one major problem

    Yes - they are really fucking stupid

    Ok, I ask you

    What it could be (realistically) done to Street it Up the MMA?

    2 out of 10, barely. 1 for creativity, 1 for effort.

          You for got the most streetified technique there is...

          Headlock Mofo!

          Combine that with ineffective face punches and you have defined The Street.

            Have all fights start NJ style. Arms spread, chin up saying "come at me bro", while the combatants comment on the promiscuity of each others mothers.

              MMA can never really top PitFighting, but there are a few improvements it can make.

              First off, they seriously need to do something about where the fighters actually compete. No more of that ring and cage bullshit.





              Second, they need to start recruiting fighters with proven Street pedigrees (Streetigrees).

                  Your point about fighters that actually compere is very valid indeed. Is this supposed to be a football match? Hello no, in the street there is life and death - none of this sports or you lose = I win kind of thinking merges very well with the street philosophy...

                  I also think that the fighters should wear gloves like this instead of modern mma gloves;


                  And they should definately wear boots with shinpads like this;

                  I think that the pure untamed spirit of the streets still remains trapped, yet fully alive somewhere between shootwrestling, vale tudo/nhb AND freakshow boxing matchs like this and many more;

                  Also remember;

                  "Ask not for what the Street can do for you, but what YOU can do for the Street!"

                    They need to make a fight sport where only Captain Kirk techniques are allowed. Double hammerfist, two-foot drop kick, karate chops (both palm up and palm down), flying cross body, and upkick with both feet after falling on a control panel are the only moves allowed!

                        You forgot this technique:



                        Streetest thing I've ever seen, bro.

                              Play the OST Fight Theme throughout the match, and I will contribute to your Kickstarter.
