a headlock,full nelson, or leg lock in MMA matches.
Because that shit doesn't work
Ok here we go why no claw hold, no flying drop kicks, why no fingers in the eyes wait that does happen, why no figure 4 leg lock, why no chin lock, why no back breaker, why does no one use the turn buckle oh I know it's a cage, why does no one get stabbed any more I saw a spectator stab Waldo Von Eric at the old garden once, no flying leg scissor, their was a hold that the iron shiek used forget the name of it, they still use the body slam, no hammer lock why don't they hit people with a bomber rang like the kangaroo brother use to do, no bear hugs?
Leg locks are used
Of course I understand those are fake pro wrestling moves but don't tell me a headlock, full nelson or bending a guys leg back doesn't work.
I will ask my youngest son about it he is a black belt BJJ. You can slip out and can reverse those holds. Leg locks are still dangerous. They work on getting out. My son had miniscus surgery trying to get out of a leg lock.
When I was a kid there was a guy walking along the sidewalk with his arm out to his side. People had to move around him. Then one guy told him to put his hand down. He did not feel like moving around him. So a fight started the guy with the arm out knew Judo. He started to throw the guy around. After the fourth throw the guy got off the ground pulled out his gun and shot the guy who knew Judo in the chest killed him. True story happened over 50 yrs ago.
When I was young we wrestled outside in the grass and I used all those holds and they worked. I got submissions from using a full nelson and a leg lock where basically with the other guy on his stomach I pulled his leg back.
Leg locks are used in MMA. Not the most used techniques, notably because you usually lose position.
For the others, if I well understand, those are things we see in pro wrestling. Well, pro wrestling isn't about efficiency.
Bending the legs backward is just way too easy to get away from for a fighter. And also, the opportunity never presents itself becsuse fighters will never allow the position to happen.
Conor McGregor !
Ronda Rousey vs Gina Carrano?? Remember before Ronda, there was the woman who opened the door for Women's MMA in Gina Carrano!!! That match would be one for the ages!!! I'd pay WrestleMania(sad show last night despite breaking the attendance record!!) money to see that one!!
Because those are too tricky to implement especially you are fighting on a mixed discipline match.
