Floppy Divac -
Is BJM correct in saying there's no illegal slam when a sub is being attempted? That doesn't sound right at all. Not saying he's wrong, but it sure sounds wrong to me. A rule doesn't apply because there's a sub going on? How long has this been a thing?
the poster with scant regard as to whom he is pictured with, is correct
suddenly, all bets are off in terms of safety! suddenly the slamming fighter doesn't need to worry if their opponent comes down, with full force, on a bent neck?
if so, seems reasonable to review this rule.
bonus paragraphs: ... when does the lifting/lifted fighter need to break their grip on the submission, before they are again protected? if they are holding it until they realise they are airborne, and let go, what happens if their neck comes down at an angle that's likely to cause serious damage?
(Ms Andrade did not seem to have a plan b once she lifted Rose. it was a swift action. Rose was gonna get a bad slam whether she released or not! does it follow you are vulnerable to a spike if you ever try a standing submission?) food for thought.
