Iíll bounce from place to place, in your face. You wonít know what hit you.
Youíll just be standing around and Iíll knock you straight to the ground.

I think point fighting is a problem. If you rule the fight as a whole with damage dealt as the prime scoring, you take the tools of save fight away from point fighters who take you down and lay on you until the round is over.

UFC make fighters. Pride made legends.

Make it legal to strike the opponent's head anywhere if they turn and run or hold onto an ankle while you're standing.

Remove control from scoring criteria.

Give more weight to damage and close submission attempts in scoring criteria.

Remove strikes to the knee.

If a fighter becomes known for grabbing the fence or poking eyes in his previous fights don't give him warnings anymore - go straight to deducting a point.
Nah, Aldo would be deducted 2 points before the opening bell lol

Boo the Ceasar DisGracie Camp.

1) Allow flying stomps, soccer kicks and knees to a downed opponent, hand or no hand on the mat.

2) Get rid of "accidental" eye pokes by instituting a red card system that would penalize repeat offenders.

If kicks on the ground were allowed then Aldo would never need to win another decision in his life.
