The downward elbow strike was re-admitted, since the rule was originally set to stop someone from elbowing in the back of the head. Now that they have a clear definition as to where the illegal blow would be they reinstated the downward elbow strike."


I'm not sure how accurate this article is. I'll look for the rules online because I would like to know for sure
EDIT:
http://www.ufc.com/discover/sport/ru...regulations#15
"
The following acts constitute fouls in a contest or exhibition of mixed martial arts and may result in penalties, at the discretion of thereferee, if committed:
Butting with the head
Eye gouging of any kind
Biting
Spitting at an opponent
Hair pulling
Fish hooking
Groin attacks of any kind
Putting a finger into any orifice or any cut or laceration of an opponent
Small joint manipulation
Striking downward using the point of the elbow
Striking to the spine or the back of the head
Kicking to the kidney with a heel
Throat strikes of any kind, including, without limitation, grabbing the trachea
Clawing, pinching or twisting the flesh
Grabbing the clavicle
Kicking the head of a grounded opponent
Kneeing the head of a grounded opponent
Stomping a grounded opponent
Holding the fence
Holding the shorts or gloves of an opponent
Using abusive language in fenced ring/fighting area
Engaging in any unsportsmanlike conduct that causes injury to an opponent
Attacking an opponent on or during the break
Attacking an opponent who is under the care of the referee
Attacking an opponent after the bell has sounded the end of the round
Timidity, including, without limitation, avoiding contact with an opponent, intentionally or consistently dropping the mouthpiece or faking an injury
Throwing opponent out of ring/fighting area
Flagrantly disregarding the instructions of the referee
Spiking an opponent to the canvas on his head or neck
Interference by the corner
Applying any foreign substance to the hair or body to gain an advantage"

I don't see "covering the mouth"
Well since its an amendment to the rules its possible the UFC did not update there site with this information, or there web master took this information off an old source.

I thin kyou will find that the officials rule book is much bigger than that what the UFC has on there site, but I guess Joe Rogan makes it legal cos he says so

And its not something you see often, give me one other example aside from the Jones/Shogun fight since 2008 when you have seen this tactic applied?

Sherdog comfirms that these changes happened

http://www.sherdog.com/news/news/Rev...ivisions-13533

Quote:
Smothering the mouth or nose of an opponent has been added to the Unified Rules' fouls list, prohibiting a fighter from using his hand to prevent his opponent's ability to breathe. According to the new verbiage, this does not include choke attempts where a fighter's mouth is covered by his opponent's arm
It talks of the same meeting on the same date reporting on a meeting that took place July 2008 where the rules of MMA where reviewed and changes where made.

Another quote from the Sherdog Artical

Quote:
The amended document -- drafted by the ABC's MMA Chairman Dale Kliparchuk, New Jersey State Athletic Control Board Deputy Attorney Nick Lembo, ABC President Timothy Leuckenhoff, California State Athletic Commission Executive Officer Armando Garcia* and veteran referee "Big" John McCarthy -- primarily provided clarifications to the already existing Unified Rules instituted in April 2001 that serve as a regulatory beacon for the sport throughout North America
It all look very much above board to me, would be nice to see this amended document, could be the case the info we have online is out of date from the officials scores ikely do to lack of been assed to update the websitewe, but then its not like the ref and officals have to rely on the web to gain access to the rules,the fact is the refs will have access to the amened document snd should be upto date on the rules much more so than the general public, so whats on the web could be out of date from link posted prior to this.

well, the last link I posted is not out of date in reference to the changes made in 2008, since it was posted on July 30 2009.. However, the changes made in 2008 are not in there.

Like I say refs will not rely on what is posted on the web to inforce the rules of MMA, if this meeting took place and this rule chance was made it does not need to be added to there website to make it official.

Many MMA news sources reported on this meeting, Sherdog, MMAJunkie and loads of others if you look into it, its very likely this meeting did take place from what I can see and that this rule exists, I find it hard to believe that all these news scorses pulled this meeting out of there ass and added this rule in error, more so when other rules listed in the reports like the weight classes for example are correct and is now common knowledge, so why would this be wrong?

I am willing to bet its right, and unless there has been an amendment since that rules out this chance then its stands, and I can't see why they would rule out this rule it would not make sense for them to do so since lets be real that technique is cheap and suck ass and deserved to be outlawed.
