    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Original UFC rules were?

    Does anyone know what they were or where I could find them? I tried using the search, but nothing popped up. All wiki told me was that "the UFC operated with limited rules. There was no biting, no eye gouging, and techniques such as hair pulling, headbutts and groin strikes were frowned upon, but allowed."

    Earliest UFC the better. Thanks!

    I'm pretty sure it was no biting, eye gauging, and fish hooks. Groin shots, hair pulling, and headbutts were allowed (if I recall correctly from UFC 1), but I'm not sure about attacks to the spine.

    UFC 1 was no eye gouging, no nut shots, no biting. They only put nut shots back in for UFC 2 because a bunch of karate types said they were essential.

    No fish hooking was only after UFC 6 where Tank Abbot tore out half Oleg Taktarov's face, as the rules prohibited the obvious finger-munching counter.

    No, unfortunately the first 10 UFCs were completely underground. Rumours of it having been on PPV are extremely exagerated.

    Were they really? I remember seeing a fight between the "Nazi Savate fighter with a broken hand" beat a fatty to a pulp...Geraud/Gerard?

    What UFC was that?

    That was UFC 1, 1st fight Gerard Gorduea vs. Teila Tuli, Gerard actually didn't have a broken hand until he punched that sumo wrestler.

    I was lucky enough to find the first 4 UFC's on DVD.
