    Add a couple weight classes, 10 pound jumps at the lower weights and 15 pound jumps at the middle weights is pretty big. Also weight classes don't have to end in a 0 or 5, I would go with something like.

    Strawweight-132
    Flyweight-138
    Bantamweight-145
    Featherweight-152
    Lightweight-160
    Welterweight-170
    Middleweight-182
    Light Heavyweight-197
    Cruiserweight-215
    Heavyweight-285

    Legalize all strikes.
    Have fighters punch themselves in the genitals and eye gouge themselves before the fight starts. So when the referee says "I warned you in the locker room" it makes sense before the immediate point deduction for such fouls.
    Have Bruce Buffer after "It's time" walk out of the cage.

    Do you even watch MMA? Currently referees give out 2 free fouls before they even consider taking a point.... My proposal is a compromise.

    Also if fighters are known to Foul every single fight, they're getting cut. Not sure what your thought process was behind your comment. CTE?

    The dumb-ass boxing 10-point scoring system, the ridiculous 12-6 elbow rule, the absurdity of champs being allowed to sit out for long periods of time (holding up the division).

    Implement a sudden death for draws where the ref flips a coin, winner gets a free shot on the opponent. Continue this back and fourth until KO shows the victor

    also give a free punch to anyone eye gouged, nut shot, or who’s opponent holds the cage.

    also, refs need tasers to break up LNP, wall and stall

    Ppl saying stuff like can't weigh a certain percentage after weighing don't realize how much more dangerous that really is.

    Damn sherdog is clueless. Most ppl would run the business into the ground

    I hate to say it, but that wouldn't fix the judging. We simply need better judges. It will end up being the same shitty judges giving the same shitty scores. Fights you think should go 4 will just go 3. Or more draws with 2-2 rounds. Too messy

    1. remove all the rules, such as illegal elbows, knees to the head on the floor, kicks to the head on the floor, headbutts, allow it all, like its supposed to be, this is supposed to be Ultimate Fighting. The sport was not made to have all these softie rules

    2. remove 265 cap, and lew HWs weigh whatever they want

    3. send all of the WMMA to another show (if people really love it as much as they brag about then great for them! they get to watch it without any of the male fights!)

    2. less fight nights and more stacked PPVs
    3. fighter has to be unconscious to stop a fight

    Nah. I strongly disagree. If someone makes a mistake over and over, you can chose to say he is an idiot, or you can look at why? If more people keep on doing the task wrong, maybe the task is too difficult?

    If you expect too much of people, you will always need to have the best, top motivated, smartest people to do a job that can be made simpler. It is normally a waste of resources and it will make training and finding the right guy very tough, and if she/he decides to quit, it will be a huge problem to replace her/him. If you make things easier, more people will do it right.

    I love how it worked out for K1, (even if I think there should be even more extra rounds). Extra rounds to determine the winner is great.

    I dont see how this makes draws? it would never be draws. With three judges deciding, it makes it more accurate, and if they disagree or think the fight was somewhat difficult to judge, they just make it a forth round (instead of just picking a winner, even if they are not sure who was best, like they do today). If the forth round is too hard to judge, they just make a fifth round, and then they will have a clear winner.

    1. Change the gloves to the Pride ones, so they can penalty harder for eye pokes.
    2. Stop that weight cutting BS. That's way to retarded to be a thing in 2021.
    3. Remove rounds and just have fights for max 15 or 25 minutes.
    Honorable mentions:
    Have fighters go out alone on a stage during the entrace.
    Remove promos and other BS on PPVs. Why should people pay to having their time wasted?

    Would love a super grand prix every year in each division where the best fighters fight in one night to secure a grand prize and the champ belt.

    K1 STYLE ;)

    Pride and UFC need to merge into a final form.

    Have a merit based ranking and matchmaking system.

    No more pathetic title shots to losers (last BW title fight had two guys both coming off a loss smh)

    Khazmat fights in all Divisions he can make weight. Every event !

    I should of just stuck to a realistic rule set change but throwing whatever types of rules are to include whomever. Dana might not be liked but he has a pretty good grasp on the fight business and realities and a solid team. I don't think a lot of it benifits the guys who walk away with the long term health effects but that's a different story for another thread.

    1. Make it a ring instead of a cage
    2. No more downed opponent rule
    3. No drug testing

    Other things worth mentioning are hiring a screaming lady and moving events to Japan.

    1. Cut down on cards and stack the fight nights and PPVs you do have

    2. Tournaments for the number 1 contender slot would be great

    3. Move out of the apex and do fight nights in the south where you dont have to much concern about covid regulations. The live crowd makes a big difference and if they cut back on live shows this would be fairly easy to accomplish
