    Rule 8 produced a few stunningly dull fights.

    This.

    People always cry about decisions, but I'd rather see a boring fight stopped after 15 minutes than be forced to sit through that shit for 90.

    No. You don't.

    If they didn't scrap rule 8, Shamrock/Severn II would STILL be going on.

    Funny that the early rules were better in a lot of ways than the rules of today.

    i dont know if this was a first draft or something but it is definitely not the rules that were used for UFC 1 and the next few.

    there were no rounds or time limits, no one wore gloves (except art jimmerson on one hand) but still punched to the face, and groin shots were definitely thrown.

    I believe the only rules were no eye gouging and no biting.

    The articles I linked below said UFC1 disallowed groin strikes.

    "At the inaugural UFC event, there were three rules: no biting, eye gouging or groin strikes. "
    "The others compromised with Rorion and UFC 1 rules were set. Fights had an unlimited number of five-minute rounds. Eye gouging, biting, and groin strikes were designated as illegal techniques."

    If you watch UFC 1 you will see a clock in the corner of the screen sometimes.

    No biting, no eye gouging, and no small joint manipulation. No rounds/time limits. And the first guy to use what would become MMA gloves was Tank Abbott.

    No whining. And once a Hawaiian is beaten unconscious, he must be punched until he has convulsions.
