MMA  > General MMA  > Rules YOU would like to see changed
July 10, 2009, 10:24 AM
Ever watched a match and said " well thats a **** rule"?

Here is my list of changes I would like to see in MMA/UFC

1) Foot stomps. - I HATE this move. Its very dangerous to the fighter receiving the stomp and to me its very cheap and unnecessary.

2) "Standing them up" - While this is good for the fare weather fan who only wants blood, this is a bad rule. The fight is on the ground or against the fence FOR A REASON. Its a FIGHT, the ref should not interfere in the NATURAL progression of a fight.

3) Some sort of organized ranking and title shot formula. - Broc getting a title shot after going 1-1 is solely a publicity stunt. The sport should have stricter rules on what you must achieve before you get a title shot. I know this will never happen but it still burns me up seeing Lyoto Machida wait 3 years undefeated for a shot and broc getting one at 1-1.

4) 3rd round worth MORE than 10 points. - Im sick of seeing fighters win the first two rounds and just coast in the third to win a 29-28 Decision. Make the third round worth 11 points to make fighters work THAT much harder. It will bring out the better fighters and the fighters with more heart.

I could name a few more but I want to see YOUR opinions.
