This all speculation on my part, but:
They teamed up with DSE and several other companies to pull off Yerenoka! which did NOT allow knees/kicks/stomps to the head of a grounded opponent (hence why the Akiyama/Misaki ruling was overturned).
So if I had to guess, M-1 is going to go away from those kind of strikes as well. Also, for their first event in the US none of that will be allowed. As far as elbows, it'd be a good idea to protect Fedor from those from a business standpoint, so I'd be willing to say no elbows too.
Again, this is just my opinion.
