    Some of the important points.

    1.The New Jersey State Athletic Control Board (NJSACB), is not in favor of the proposed new definition of a grounded fighter or the elimination of heel kicks to the kidney as a foul,

    2. NJSACB counsel Nick Lembo are against of early weigh-ins for MMA events done by California, Nevada, Mohegan Sun and Kansas

    3. Leaders from Missouri and Ohio have started the Association of Combative Sports Commissions (ACSC) as a counter to the ABC.

    Nice...maybe some other standard will come about and we'll get grounded knees and strikes back.

    Or everything gets fragmented and goes to shit.

    At this moment, according to Unified Rules of ABC, heel kicks to the kidneys is considered as foul, Just like Eye poke or Nut Shots. In this new rule sets ABC is going to remove Kick to Kidney from Foul list.

    Nobody should be against the new weigh in rules unless you are in favor of going all out, same day weigh ins.

    Now that we've got New York, we don't need New Jersey.

    I'm expecting the latter. This is bureaucracy in the US after all.

    That's a shame, because I've heard the New Jersey AC is the best in the business.

    it's almost as if some negotiation occurs between parties before final decisions are made.

    WOOOAAHHHH!!!!

    wtf NJ... this is dumb as hell. And it has to be a rule change to make playing the game illegal because it is currently legal there is no addendum saying you cant. And people ripped McCarthy when he told fighters dont play the game I wont penalize the other guy.
    Also this is MMA and a combat sport you cant just get rid of things because you dont want them getting hit in the face.

    Later on in article: I dunno I guess they have a point that some things like the early weigh in were not voted on, but it was a test to see how it went and since it went so well other governing bodies adopted it even though the other commissions might have other ideas on what to do.

    Overall it seems like some states are being salty and that this is probably just your typical political power struggle.
