I've seen a lot of threads on guys going back and forth over "dirty" tactics (biting, throat strikes) being fight-enders/deciders. Not gonna solve anything, but I figured i'd just share a story.
My sparring buddy's younger brother is a JV football player at his high school. He apparently jawed some two Senior varsity players at a party and for whatever reason found himself taking them both on at once. Untrained, it wasn't long before one guy had him in a messy nelson and the other guy was slugging away at him.
Let me back up and say that my buddy's brother is untrained. He spars with us often, but never trains/drills his fight game. We stomp him around with relative ease.
In a pinch, he bit the guys arm that was holding him. The guy pulled up enough to give him a shot at his face. My buddy's brother bit the side of the guys cheek and sunk in.
The other guy stopped swinging and stood there for a second, then started yanking them apart. At this point, the flesh on the first kid's cheek had separated quite a bit and was bleeding out pretty nasty. The guy with the bite wound fell on his side and flopped around frantically, shouting something to the effect of "my fucking face".
The fight reduced to 1 on 1, my friend's brother hit a takedown from the sitting position, went to knee on belly, and pounded the other kid out. He took a few shots in the face, but in the end, emerged victorious in a 2 on 1 challenge.
I dont condone his instigation of a fight in public. I think he is often a dick, and undisciplined, but I admire his guts, and i'm proud to say he's got a wicked adrenaline rush in him.
Now I'm not so sure of some of you "hardened experts" who claim that bites cant decide fights. The unexpected is always a valuable tool in a no-rules situation.
