Total lack of front headlock/turtle guard after sprawls + Lack of guillotines.

Recommended Posts

I noticed a successful sprawl currently almost always, from what I've seen in several hundred matches, leads to both fighters standing up disengaged, which is simply just not accurate. Often, or perhaps more often than not, a successful sprawl will result in a front headlock against a turtle guard which can be an extremely effective position even if just to strike from--Amplified much more if the rule set allows knees to the head. Currently though, that never happens, and in a match-up against a wrestler with "Constant Takedowns" as a trait, this will result in the wrestler shooting 10+ times without any consequence even if they fail every time.


As well, I don't think I've seen a single guillotine choke attempt off a takedown into guard, which is common even if low success rate.
