Oh come on you know that is only for training. We are fighting on the ground
Ok, Mr.Cocky get ready because were fighting ground
Sorry, we're fighting old school baby
STOP! You cant kick me when i'm down
Looks like we have some differences
You guys have just evolved and became more tactical in fighting, us oldies are more just brute strength
Yes, but we both like to fight whether it be on the ground of standing up
Like ancient times wrestling the fighters either fought on the ground or upright.On the ground they would have to make their opponent submit.In upright fights they would have to make their opponent fall to the ground three times to win.This is different from mma today where fighters train for both ground and upright fighting.Then in fights they will fight both on the ground and upright, unlike the ancient times which used the upright mostly just for training and the ground fights for the games.
The rules have evolved over time to make the sport safer for the fighters. In ancient times they were allowed to strike anywhere in any position.The modern day mma has banned strikes with legs while opponents are on the ground. The sport has been evolved to make it less dangerous.
Both Pankration and modern day mma are very different. The mma fight in a cage but in pankration they fight just on the ground in an open area. The rules have evolved to make it safer.
