ONE FC adopts full PRIDE rules for soccer kicks following Arlovski-Sylvia NC

Quote:
Just this past Friday (Aug. 31, 2012), Andrei Arlovski and Tim Sylvia battled it out for the fourth time inside a cage at ONE FC 5: "Pride of a Nation" in Manila, Philippines. "The Pitbull" vowed to get his revenge on "dickface," no matter the cost, and that's exactly what he did.

The cost ended up being the fight.

The Belarusian dropped "The Maine-iac" with two powerful right hands and then proceeded to kick the big man in his head while he was down (watch the .gif by clicking here). The problem, of course, is that he didn't get permission from the referee first, which one has to do in ONE FC in order to execute a soccer kick.

Arlovski was given a yellow card while Sylvia was given five minutes to recover. He couldn't, and the bout was called a no contest, planting the seeds for a fifth meeting between the eternal rivals.

If they do meet again and it goes the same way, it will be a clean win for Arlovski.

That's because the promotion announced that going forward, it will adopt PRIDE rules in regards to soccer kicks. From the organization's Twitter:

Effective immediately, ONE FC has adopted full PRIDE rules for soccer kicks.

And now it's open season.

I'm glad they aren't in the Unified rules most of the MMA I watch is under. But if they are going to have them in their organization, I guess they just have to go all the way like that. I think that their intention of fighter safety was a good idea, but obviously sounded better in their heads and wasn't working well in the actual fights where things moved way too fast.

I just want to know what kind of stupid you have to be to think it would have worked in the first place?

Obviously they have a bunch of people that have no clue as to what they are doing.

There is no hope for this company.

Are stomps allowed or just soccer kicks?

are welbows legal too? If so, then that makes mma more realistic not that it isnt but that instinctual urge to knee someone and soccer kick them makes it liike more like a true fight even tho they are true fights just less rules

Yes, elbows are legal as well. I saw both elbows and knees in the first fight on Sherdog. Though I'm wondering what the case was with the Huerta fight.

That was the worst rule ever anyway. "Hey, he's down, can I kick him in the head?" "Sure, go ahead."
