Greece and Rome doesn't have some foothold claim on the origins of grappling. Plenty of homos grappling in Asia or wherever before the term was coined.
Your 1st paragraph is ridiculous, they train stand up to become a well rounded fighter, same reason they train submissions, same reason standup fighters train wrestling and Bjj. They don't train striking techniques to make uncle Dana happy, that's the most ridiculous statement yet. Next you'll be telling us Ronda is training striking because Dana thinks it will be more exciting for her to stand and bang for 5 rounds rather than finishing fights in under 5 minutes.

As to your 2nd paragraph, maybe you should pick up ahi story book. Historically the Greeks and Romans were the forbearers of modern hand to hand combat.
The "some homos" comment was cute though.

Isn't it about time you took your uninformed self on for another year or so?

This makes absolutely no sense.

They work on standing because it is MMA and everything starts standing up. Their base is still wrestling and the ruleset in the UFC does lend itself better to Wrestlers.

RIGHT

US State Athletic Commission which worked with the UFC to create the rules.

Seriously how old are you using "dumb" "stupid" and other rude terms? Or are you just trolling?

There are some good Asian fighters in the UFC, and there have been historically. The issue is that most Asian fighters tend to excel in the lighter weight classes, which are not as popular. There's also a lot of smaller organizations in Asia where they're probably more comfortable fighting. Dong Hyun Kim and Chan Sung Jung are two very good fighters, although Jung (who is awesome) is currently serving his Korean military term.

Maybe it's just not culturally prudent. I imagine that most MMA fighters end up severely debilitated by the end of their careers. It's just not healthy for people to get their joints bent outside their natural range of motion, nor is it healthy for them to sustain repeated blows to the head.

It's a pretty dumb profession in all honesty.

You clearly know absolutely ZERO about mma, martial arts, boxing, judo, Jiu Jitsu and so on.

I actually know a lot about boxing, not just the history, but about multiple styles, and what works against what, and when certain things should be used and when they shouldn't, but it's not exactly a brilliant sport.

In what way is a man punching another man in the head healthy? In what way is another man bending your joint out of place or snapping your arm healthy?

You don't think there is a high probability of becoming disabled?

You may be delusional.

Instead of imagining, how about pointing out some MMA fighters who did end up debilitated from MMA?

Last I looked, MMA did not break the top ten of dangerous professions...

Clear you have no actual experience in this, probably just half knowledge, which is dangerous knowledge.

No, you're dangerous.

It's blatantly obvious that MMA is a dangerous sport. Apparently, you don't think that's the case. That makes you dangerous because you're either being disingenuous or you're lying to yourself.

Lmao I love these boxing guys that still insist on coming over to bash mma.

I can count on one hand how many deaths have come due to mma. How many boxers die?

Ask guys like don frye, or Dan Severn, Royce Gracie. There is a laundry list of mms guys in great health after training and competing in Bjj/mma for decades.
Now go look at guys like James toney, hell you can't even understand a word he says.

The only mma fighter I can think of off hand with severe issues is mark Kerr, and his issues are due to his severe drug addiction.
