I really think it would be an entirely different game than the rules-based MMA of today. I do not see the same fighters being on top.

For some reason, I think that under no rules, Wandy would reign supreme. He just has the brutality to make it work IMO.

For the record, I think NHB would also take the weight classes out of the mix. Would LWs even exist in the sport against such large, dangerous opponents?

Well how no holds barred could it ever actually be? I can't imagine watching somebody bite another's ear on video, for real. Vale Tudo is as close as you can get that I can imagine. With no weight classes - Tim Sylvia would pack on some weight and be the top guy I imagine. Or some Giant Nortje type
