    dare I say it….I kind of wish the sport had extra protective gear, i.e., thin helmet to prevent lacerations and heavy concussions. But the gear would have to not interfere with the wrestling and Jiu Jitsu submissions. What if the fights were judged on a technical scoring system?

    Why is Pascal Kraus with two different entries in the list?
