Other martial arts in the UFC

Are you allowed to use kung fu in the UFC? What about ninjutsu? People try to say that kung fu doesn't work, but it is in fact a very good martial art to learn. So why don't they use it in the UFC? Are they only allowed to use MMA(I'm assuming MMA is a whole other martial art)? Why don't they use ninjutsu? If they did use either of these two then I think they would win a lot faster. After, I myself use it and I have never lost to anyone so far. They are usually wrestlers, but then again I also know brazilian ju-jitsu.....

Because most of the techniques don't work. You can't hit in the eye or throat or groin, so believe me you aren't the first person to think about this shit. As for ninjitsu, trying to creep on up on a person wont work when you are right in front of them. The best styles are already utilized in MMA.

Ninjutsu isn't exactly only about sneaking up on someone. There are a lot of other moves in it that would kill a person.

I get the feeling that killing someone in the middle of a fight wouldn't go over too well with fans or the media.

HAHA! Yeah, I guess that would only get you some good fans about 1000 years ago.

I think they didn't exactly show everything in ninjutsu...... because they also teach you about pressure points to paralyze your enemy and how to win against more than even 3 opponents.... so yeah.....
