    MMA Weapons

    If MMA wasn't (mostly) relegated to being a sport, and if instead it originated back in the days when people killed each other up close and personal, I wonder what kinds of weapons would've been used in the art?

    Somehow I don't picture an MMA master dancing around with wind and fire wheels.

    As in, if MMA allowed the use of weapons?
    Probably swords, shields, and spears like our ancient forefathers used, or guns and knives like or less ancient forefathers used.
    Or cars and explosives, if the rules were lax enough.
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    all things in Moderation
    1.:Film canisters full of pepper, sand, and salt.
    2.:The short, straight katana like what Zatoichi carried in his cane.
    3.a:Sai
    3.b: Nunchuck
    4.:All the rope weapons with blades and/or weights preferably the silk ropes.
    5.:Anything with feathers and tassles.

    You know the traditional weapons for all serious deadly Martial Arts.
    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    There are no MMA weapons. It's already too deadly for the streets.
