    Seems like you are more likely to get KOd slamming than you are if you are slammed from our list. Even the 2 I named have unique terms (Hughes had him on the fence when he himself dropped from the choke and Rampage and Arona really did clash heads first)

    for example, and i know fedor is an animal, randleman's sup should have ended that fight. there have been many other examples of guys getting driven to the mat and then continue uneffected. guys go down during wrestling matches on slams, some quit some can't continue, often.

    why is the mma surface so forgiving?
    A lot of wrestlers get slammed pretty hard and are OK as well (watch some greco). I'm not sure making MMA more dangerous is the answer to anything.

    Slams seem to be some of the most impressive, but least effective strategies in MMA. Once a guy learns to take a fall, a slam rarely does much damage.

    Does that mean Brock Lesnar can never be hurt by a slam?

    Is it against MMA rules to pick a prone opponent off the mat, lift them up, and then slam down on top of them? It seems like it would be a good strategy, especially for former greco guys.

    i agree that it is an ineffective strategy, but it shouldn't be and i don't think it has anything to do with knowing how to fall.

    cory, i think fedor did nothing to lessen the impact. if that was on a wrestling mat on a gym floor the fight would have been over.

    It is not against the rules, but based on energy expanded and damaged inflicted it probably would be a wise strategy.
