    Think about it:

    Martial Arts, especially Eastern ones, have a storied legacy of unique weapons. Should UFC take advantgae of this and incorporate a weapons only division, to draw more interest and bring back the fire, so to speak?

    Obviously the weapons would not be lethal, but be blunted with strict rules; kind of how boxers wear gloves and even UFC fighters wear padded gloves on their hands.

    Imagine a guy with a Sai going up against a guy with a nunchuck! Finally we would see what works and what doesn't work when it comes to weapons; and this time martial arts without weapons (Muay Thai I'm lookin at you) won't dominate. Karate could make a massive return...

    Armored "medieval" MMA-style fights are a thing, and they take place in Russia and Europe. But I don't think its even legal in the States.

    I think this is a great idea... We'll get the Brazilian commission to sanction it and we're good to go... TS vs. Navy seal 1st match ever

    Not a great idea putting weapons into the hands of a War Machine or a Mayhem Miller, or even Ronda...
