Create Your Own UFC

Alrighty....done finally...

So if you guys could be the ones in charge of making all the rules in the UFC, how would it be? You can choose as many options as you want and your screen name will show up for people to see what you picked. Comment on your picks if you want or specify if its neccesary. Don't bash others for what they chose though.

I like the joint manipulation rules cuz I'm really good at that shit and I'd love to see some fighters use Akido occasionally. I also would like having open weight gran prix's and allowing fighters to fight in a higher weight class at their current weight. It wouldn't hurt anything and it would show how good of a fighter he truly is. And I like not having someone fight 2 guys with the same background twice in a row. I like Chuck but all he fights is either BJJ or wrestlers and he still has yet to fight a striker.

I agree with you! I would love to see UFC do a tournament style once a year or something, that would kickass.. and open weight class, if they wanted to.
I wouldnt make them.

Some barbarian wants soccer kicks to the head of a downed opponent LOL
Maybe in a tournament held once a year I would let that happen, but these guys are relying on this for money, cannot afford to be disabled

Yea you can click on any of the underlined numbers in the "number of votes" column and it will bring you to a screen that shows you the name of everyone that voted. It doesn't matter which underlined number you click, you will see all options and see who voted for each all on one screen.

I just notcied I forgot to vote for the open weight gran prix...yea if you forget one your screwed you can't vote again so you'll have to post it if you want someone to know.

I think the best would be no sharp point shoulders (hate fight calls because of blood)and fan decided matches

also i might have missed it but if its not on their after a ref stops a fight for the unable to inteligently defend them self if they hop back up within 5 sec place them back in the center or something else

Favorite Fighters
1 GSP(gonna beat hughes at UFC 65)
2 Fedor Emelianenko
3 Sean Sherk
4 BJ Penn
