    The whole restriction list looks like a How to: Put Someone in Hospital
    Generally punching anyone anywhere is not a good thing, nor is cutting of circulation to the brain or hyperextending joints
    There is no cheating, there is only jiu-jitsu.

    Remember the UFC was on the verge of getting banned in the US in the ealy days. Alot of rule changes were made to prevent this. These rule changes also let the UFC go under state fighting(boxing) commissions that allowed it to grow in popularity.

    Yeah, it's been said, but rules were added so that they could get the sport sanctioned. Getting it sanctioned kept it legal and got it back on PPV. ...And eventually, mainstream TV.

    So your girlfriend doesn't cringe and say "ZOMG that's what you do when you go to the gym!!!!!", after she keeps asking you show her a Pride fight and Heath Herring rocks a ************ and then sprints across the ring to knee him in the face while he's on all fours?

    I think without the Rules the UFC would not have manged to acheive the success it has - people dont wanna watch someone get their head stomped, its not pleasant.

    Its the same with Pride who banned elbows- they banned elbows not because theyre too dangerous but because they often cause cuts and therefore alot of blood.

    Dont forget these shows televised all over the world.

    At the risk of getting a temp bann, this moron has to be trolling newbie town or he just emerged from under a rock and has never actually watched any sort of MMA event at any level in the sport.

    i think you meant... "you're wrong, you're wrong, you're wrong, you're wrong.......oh wait, did you hear?.........YOU'RE WRONG......."

    edit: moved from newbietown because that forum isn't for this kind of thread.
