Yellow Card?

I know the yellow card forces the fighters to fight, but i wanna know everything about the yellow card. I agree UFC should have something like this.

There's not much too know. Once the fight starts to slow and neither fighter is progressing the fight a yellow card is issued. If a fighter performs an illegal action in the ring then one is issued. Once a fighter gets 3 yellow cards they are disqualified. If both fighters get DQ'd then the fight is considered a "no contest."

Yeah once you get one yellow card, it goes down from there. The yellow card keeps the fight going which UFC need to implement somehow. I bet if UFC had yellow card that Tim Sylvia and Andrei Arlovski fight would have been a lot better.

Yea that's exactly what I was thinking when I was watching the Sylvia/Arlovski PPV sparring session, where's the yellow card? Once you mess with their money, these guys tend to wake up.

Damn, 50% for red? Has that ever been handed out?

Red Card

I remember it happening once, about 3 years ago. Can't remember who it was. The fight just never got going and it went to the ground and BOTH fighters were given red cards for inactivity after 2 yellows. I do remember Bas commenting what a shame it was, I'll try to look it up.

It would have been yes, but there have been times when cards have been issued in the past few Pride events which I thought were harsh - it becomes another point of contention a bit like dodgy judging decisions.

Gilbert Yvel got 3 yellow cards and was disqaulified in his match against Don Frye because he kept grabbing onto the ropes to avoid being slammed down to the mat (not to mention his use of the eye poke). That's the only disqualification I can recall.
