    Commentary during the fight (or at least give an option to mute it. I want to hear the sounds of the fight itself, not how corn nuts are corn to the core)
    Knees to the head on the ground being illegal
    TUF tying up the belt

    1: Day before weigh ins (need same day)
    2: 3 round fights (all should be 5 maybe belts are 7)
    3: Untrained judges.

    WMMA (Just not for me)

    Cutting fighters for not being exciting enough (Like Shields who almost choked out Lombard and just beat Woodley who's in a title eliminator)

    Standing up fighters (I don't like that the guy on the bottom can just hold the guy on top down and just wait for the ref to stand them up, learn to sweep or stay down to the bell, it's not the guy on tops job to be active, it's the guy on the bottom)

    [Bonus] Same day weigh ins, I hate that some guys are huge and just cut like crazy and don't really suffer from much of a disadvantage because they make all their weight back by the time of the fight, I don't like guys like Lombard at WW because they'll be able to win via size and just make a lot of guys drop weight

    Round by round scoring, knees/legs to a downed opponent, and this isn't really in the UFC's authority but to get the judges to be less trapped by the 10-9 must that seems to have taken over. If you see a 10-8 round, score it like that. If at the end of the round you're scratching you're head about who won, or how the one guy survived all those attempts to finish, score it a 10-10 or 10-7 accordingly. Oh and lets get a little nuance it judging take downs, if a guy fails on 3-4 takedowns throughout a round and finally gets one in the last 30 seconds of the round, that shouldn't win him the round, although whole fight scoring would address this.

    Those three things would do a lot of good for the sport.

    I really like these three. But I also think we need a consistently enforced rule against stalling (from any position) that quickly penalizes fighters by deducting points. This is the number 1 change needed, in my opinion, and would greatly improve the quality of the fights. If you do that, there is no need for standups. Also, fighters won't be able to back up so much on their feet (I'm looking at YOU Lyoto Machida)!
