The rule No knee when hand are down needs to change !! :(

The rule it self is just much more dangerous than if it was just legal .... it makes guys play with the rules wich is very dangerous because there is alot of adrenaline going on and you being a fighter you cant always be checking out if the guy has one hand on the ground or not .....


if you trust that the other guy is gonna be calm and always being on alert if your hands are down .... you are eventually going to be against the wrong opponent who is gonna knee you in your friggin eyes causing them to pop!! ...cus you where too busy playing the "hand to the mat game" instead of protecting your face .....


that position is very weak fight and alpha wise .... both when up against the cage and also when on the mat playing pure hands down game ...... i just think it has no place in a contest called THE ULTIMATE FIGHTER

if you guys have any gifs of the hand playing game ... please share ... i think its ridiculous

I agree, the fight should need to have a knee down rather than a few fingers.

Maxi needs to chill a little in his fights. This was his 2nd DQ caused by being too aggressive.

It's one of many rules that should be changed.

They also really shouldn't let you stretch your fingers out of the glove while standing, since it creates a risk for eyepokes.

Boxers sometimes hold their gloved fist out to paw, and that doesn't bring with it a risk of eyepokes, so closed fist pawing should still be allowed, but not stretching the fingers out.
