    I mean it has to be that, 12 to 6 elbows, and upkicks. Rules like these make this sport dumb and too gamey.

    The most ridiculous rule is not being able to fish hook

    Not being able to throw your opponent out of the cage is the most annoying. We need the Tank days to return.

    Considering that you could probably kill someone if their head was against the cage when you knee them, no.

    That one is fun but going knuckles deep in a grounded opponent's bumhole should be legal too

    then find you a good organization that doesn't enforce those rules. I'll wait...

    Maybe they will also allow steroids and eye gouging....

    I prefer the rear naked fuck to the rear naked choke myself.

    Get a grip. We are all better off if no one actually dies inside the cage.

    What's ridiculous is so many different regions having different rules in place. Doesn't UFC have a big highly paid staff of execs to go around and lobby state athletic commissions? Also ridiculous is how long it takes to change rules.

    That and not being able to upkick a guy on top of you if one of his knees are touching the mat.

    MMA rules need a hard reboot.

    I mean if you're gonna make rules based on what techniques can kill someone then may as well ban the entire sport

    Yeah, but a knee or kick to someone's head where there is nowhere for the head to move is just really bad. Might as well allow for head stomps.

    Irony being this is actually against the rules of pride because he is grabbing the rope to stabilize.
