So question for all of you who know MMA rules better than me: why are basic scissors like the bodyscissors or headscissors rarely if never used in MMA fights, both guy vs guy or girl vs girl?? Is it that they're not allowed or not effective for ending a fight? I had a heated talk with my friend after he said that scissors weren't effective in MMA and in general. I'd seen them used several times whenever I went to my school's wrestling matches. Seeing that and watching some of the female matches on stuff like WWE (I'll always remember Layla being my inspiration) and seeing how much pain the victim was in made me use it a lot whenever I used to grapple. Yes, I know that TV wrestling is fake, but seeing the amount of power of that hold really made me use that as a bread-and-butter kind of thing. Again, I'm a newbie to this sort of thing, so sorry if I come off as ignorant!
