How would the rankings/ landscape of WMMA change with UFC 1 Rules (+no groins shots)?

    Just wondering. It said only eye gouging and biting was against the rules in UFC 1, and that these were only enforced via a $1500 fine each time. Also, um, let's say for the sake of argument they also didn't allow "groin" shots.

    Would Ronda still have run rough shot against almost a dozen opponents like she did? How many times would JJ have been finished by now ? Would KO go up? Would medical bills? Would early stoppages be even more common?

    Whoever was best at headbutting from top control would be queen.

    Are we having the same levels and efficiency of drug testing as at UFC 1 as well?

    Rose would be safe from hair pulling.

    I expect that the BJJ fighters would fight with a gi.

    Pre-USADA Ronda would be a goddess.

    Whatcha gonna do when Ronda-mania runs wild on you?

    180 pounds of chicken wings, beer, and hatred from being the fat ugly kid would be unleashed with no rules.

    No weight classes & no drug testing so Cyborg roids up into a 200+ lbs monster and Hulk smashes everyone.

    Woulda loved to have seen Ronda fight in a Gi. Would NOT love to see ANY fighter punched in the back of the head. Pretty sure UFC 1 the ref couldn't stop the fight and John McCarthy had a huge problem with that and so would I.
