    Are they allowed to?

    Back in the day they could not. But now someone from a fighter's corner can watch the broadcast on his phone and eavesdrop on strategy, learn if he's injured, etc.

    Edit: I meant in between rounds, not during the fight itself.

    How would you prevent them from listening to the opponent's corner...?

    Yes, and it finally seems like corners are just now starting to use codes instead.

    They aren't supposed to peek, either.

    Vaseline in the ears. Just add that to the precautions and checks at the Harley-Davidson Prep Point

    No, there is a strict honor system that has been in place and respected by all fighters since Zuffa took over. I believe violations of this code may be punished by 12-48 month suspension.

    I edited the title to reflect what I meant.

    I meant listening in between rounds.

    Sometimes your opponents corner gets excited and they are a lot louder than they realize so you can actually hear what they are telling him. Nothing shady about it.

    I literally laughed out loud when greg jackson screamed TRAVISSS BROWNE during the holly ronda fight. It probably meant punch her in the baby maker

    So you listen to your opponent's corner and ignore yours?

    I think I have heard Joe say "I do not want to change the fight" whenthe fighters were grappling immediately infront of him.

    Well, the ref might spot the Whisper 2000 as you tried to smuggle it into the cage, but besides that, go nuts.

    isn't there a little delay between the broadcast and the actual event anyway? even if it's 10-20 seconds that's a long time when you only have 60 seconds to talk to your fighter
