Almost all the rules changes from that ABC meeting were rejected. Not just by the UFC either, but by influential commissions, several of whom weren't even represented at Montreal. Downward elbows as fouls are still there, the "headphone" definition of the back of the head was rejected and the mohawk rule was replaced with a hybrid definition, weight classes didn't change, and you can still smother people.

Discussion and review of unified rules of MMA, presented to ABC, 7-30-09

Quote:
ABC Montreal 2008


At this convention, a document proposing amendments to the Unified Rules was released to the membership. This document included controversial topics such as drastic weight class changes and liberalizing permissible elbow strikes, among other changes. After the conclusion of the convention, the ABC’s President, Tim Lueckenhoff, formed this Committee to review the original unified rules and the amendments proposed in Montreal.
They made many changes to the Montreal rules, and then their recommendations were accepted at the July 2009 ABC meetings.

Some people think that they can convey either a philosophy on life or a complex political statement using a signature on the internet. I'm not one of them.

Bullshit....Herb Dean was RIGHT there the entire time I'm pretty sure he would have heard Miller say "Stop".

You and me both, I can't even hear anyone say fight back in that clip. All I hear is Goldberg and Florian.

Audio Technika's man, best headphones ever.

I played it 5 times and heard fight back every time.

I was worried mainly about the people who said they couldn't hear any words at all lol

I definitely heard someone say stop, but it also definitely was not Miller.

I'll take that bet, how much you want to do?
