The sporting league with the reputation of housing the best strikers in the world should include all aspects of the striking game imo.
Then they would have to include suplexes from San Shou, Judo hip and reaping leg throws from Shootboxing and head butts from Burmese boxing.
You cannot allow a favored Muay Thai technique and not allow techniques from other striking styles.
