    Ones that stick on with an adhesive?

    Something similar to these stick on bifocals but thin and plastic to protect eyes.


    These eye pokes are out of control and I hate them.

    instead of just mocking me you should help me understand why my idea is stupid.

    you don’t know how old I am or how smart I am. I’m genuinely just trying to help.

    Why not luchador masks so they can market MMA to a larger audience? Also it hides their embarrassing Koed faces

    Getting punched in the face whilst having a bit of thin plastic stuck over your eyes?

    Problematic

    I think the best way to discourage fighters from cheating during fights is to allow the ref to view replays of infractions before making the official call on the fight.

    Maybe even introduce a secondary ref who makes notes of infractions. If the secondary ref catches it, he can notify the primary ref who can give a fighter a warning in between rounds. If it happens again, stop the action for an immediate point deduction, call for a point deduction in between rounds, or make the announcement before the final call, and let fans see the replays so the ref can justify his decisions.

    This would allow the ref to not only uphold the rules, which would discourage guys from taking advantage of loopholes (eye pokes, late hits, grabbing on to stuff, etc.) but would also allow the momentum of the fight to keep rolling.

    What if the fighter gets cut on the forehead and blood dripping down to the lens? should the ref stops the fight so said fighter can clean the goggles? seems like a hassle rather than a solution.

    No. gloves that make it impossible stretching your fingers all out.

    Another solution would be puffy finger jackets - custom made for each finger - then you got soft fingers and can't hurt eyes
