Re: Would the Ikkyo pin work in MMA?
Saw a video of Steven Segal giving Anderson Silva some pointers and demonstrated what looked like an Iriminage by walking inside of the punch. Would be different technique for fighter to deal with when stand-up boxing is more of a square off and that is what they would expect.
Also dropped Silva with Kotegeishi too - that was funny.
Still I think some techniques such as Ikkyo or Iriminage could be effective and not violate small joint manipulation rules.
