The cage or ring is a competition with rules, first rule is two guy's fighting. In 90% of fight's I've witnessed there's been more than half a dozen guy's involved. If your strategy is to take someone down and fight them on the deck you completely expose yourself to the wrath of the others in the mix. The tactic must be '' I must not go to the floor ! ''. Non-violent bystanders will '' Stick the boot in ! '' if they see someone on floor. Watch the CCTV fights on You Tube, you go down in a crowd, you ain't getting up.
