Says who? If a fighter remains on the ground, and the fighter who stood up remains on his feet, then the figther on the ground is dictating where the fight happens. Only arbitrary rules make your statement true. It is just as bad to stand up, as it is to remain on teh ground. Neither fighter can force the otehr to go where they want to go
no, but if fedor had wanted to he could've kickfucked mino's legs with low kicks. and never mind those little stabby kicks that mino poked at fedor's knees, those aren't going to keep someone who likes to low kick away.
bottom line is that the rules dictate what happens, and the rules dictate that mino has to stand and engage if fedor escapes his guard.
mino COULD have tried to dictate where the fight took place by closing his guard.
perhaps your father can tell us why mino didn't use closed guard to try to keep fedor on the ground with him.
