    Fighters like Henry Cejudo is why MMA needs a rule change. I thought Dillsnake was overated, overhyped, though I wasn't sure Cejudo would win, but Cejudo did knock him out.

    I think it's incredibly ridiculous for a guy like Cejudo, who in the past struggled to make it to 125 pounds, who lost bad to the dominant champion first time but also arguablly lost to the same champion the second time but won in the judge's eyes, to fight someone like Dillsnake for the title of a weight division that the company itself was planning to scrap down due to its unpopularity, without any singular defense prior to whatsoever, without giving the dominant champion of all time, who arguablly won the second fight, let alone dominating first win, the return match.

    But even more so, at the very fundamental level, what it really shows is that MMA needs a rule change. As things stand in today's ruleset, if you are a high level wrestler, you are likely to have a great degree of success in MMA, though obviously not everyone.

    I mean, the advantage that wrestlers have in today's MMA is sickening, and make things rather stale.

    You start with three takedown attempts allowed. Fourth takedown attempt = one point deducted.

    It's not really a secret that the Unified Rules were made to benefit wrestlers.

    So you Are talking about a rule change that doesn’t favour Wrestlers? Like giving less points for TDS?

    Or Are you saying something else?
