    1. Safety first
    Don't hold on for a sub for too long
    Don't sucker punch an opponent when they walk away from you
    Don't wear speedo's that are too small for you
    Don't play around when you are in a fist fight
    Don't tap and then pretend like it never happened

    Do keep striking until the referee says stop
    Do get in shape when it's time to fight
    Do make sure the fans get what they want otherwise you could get the boot
    Do treat your boss and employers respectfully
    Do Thank everybody for their support win lose or draw.

    Don't wrestle unless you can finish your opponent or otherwise have a marketable personality

    Okay, women get an exemption from this rule.

    ...unless they are related to Tim Sylvia. We can't take any chances.

    Don't stop in the middle of a fight to complain to the ref that your opponents legs are greasy.

    Don't stop in the middle of a fight and jump up on the top of the cage and celebrate your victory.
