Good stuff. One question when they are ground how long does the ref get them to stay there before he stands them up??
To me the stand up element is the best part of the fighting and they need to encourage that much more. The rolling around on the ground stuff is boring..like grappling in boxing.
Honestly its really up to the judges. If the fighters don't show any action, production or progressions in their locks and it looks like they're resting, than the ref will stand them up.
