no rounds just go till somones knocked out or taped. dont really want all that stomping if deaths happen then there would be for protestes and lots of other bad stuff. but would love to see the fights go with no stop (rounds, timelimit)

1 soccer kick to the head of downed opponent allowed per fight, would be a quick ending. Plus allow people to wear gi's if they wanted. It would really bring some interesting situations as a gi can be good or bad.

Change the scoring method. Don't be so easy giving out 10/9 every round. Score it how bad you messed up the other guy or how bad you got messed up. Just being in good position throughout the fight should win the round but not give 10.

Yeah but everyone would have broken finger's. And they fight once every 6 months. Can't have that. In pride guys get stomped all the time and they get over it. broken finger's take a while to heal. I love the gi idea.

You'll still need judges being that if there were no time limits you'll usually run out of PPV time before all the fights are done.

I would like to see a return to the old fashioned 15 minute time limit with an overtime round. I think it would make for more exciting fights with quicker conclusions.

Nah man I'm talking about wrists and elbows and even shoulders and knees. LOL I ain't talking bout to big ole fighters going in there aiming for the fingers. Besides if you do it the way its supposed to be done, you can control your opponent without breaking his bones, just creating a constant arm-bar type pain. It's hard to explain but it's sorta like judo. It's called Akido. It's fun you should look into it...they teach you how to throw guys twice your size around with an effortless tweak of the wrist or over your shoulder with one swift motion or do a standing armbar and if your opponent doesn't tap during a standing armbar, they dance. Like I said it's fun shit and it's real fun doing it to your unsuspecting friends too. They'll want you to teach them.

Akido is a great martial art. The place where im going to start training soon teaches Akido and Jiu-jitsu. Its actually a combination they call Aki-jiujitsu. Im really surprised theres not more of it in todays MMA competitions.

becaus then you can use your weight+gravity and get extremlt devestating force.

But you are allowd to strike downwards if you are lying on the ground, by that I mean striking from the head towards your feet (9 to 3)

a commonly misunderstood rule...
