    PRIDE rules with elbows and the 10-5-5 in a boxing ring with the net on the bottom half.

    Tbh, the new unified rules, despite not having been adopted by every state, are pretty good. They fixed the downed opponent rule and tightened up the rule on eye pokes.

    I just think some referees need to be better versed in them so that we avoid a Mousasi-Weidman disaster.

    No it would force the top opponents to strike/improve position or go for a sub.

    As we get more informed judges the lay and pray tactic will go the way of the dodo... just like with the weidman situation is making fighters play the hands on the floor loophole.

    One fifteen minute round. Important fights get a double overtime option. If the fight isn't finished in 15 minutes, it's a draw. If fight isn't over in 25 minutes, it's a draw.

    No biting.
    No eye gouging.
    No fish hooking.
    No groin shots.

    Kicks/knees to a grounded opponent is encouraged

    Headbutts, are encouraged


    Fighters who finish and put on action packed fights advance further than one's who go to a draw with less action.

    It would cause most fighters to throw punches with open palms instead of fists

    Says who ?? Fighting is fighting , only the very select few fighters would have the composure during a fight to think about injuring there hands
    I really think a lot of this thinking has to do with Rogan waffling

    Groin strikes are very important and must be kept legal. Protect your sack!

    there are plenty of fighters who's got weak ass hands, they'll stop punching after few breaks and most likely will use different strategy for their next fight especially if the broken hand costed them a loss

    but I'm not in the favor of vale tudo rules, as a fan, it'll make the fights less pure but boring as hell.

    in a cage
    pride rules with elbows (including 12-6)
    weight class for every 10 pound except the absolute weight class
    10 minute round, then 5, no decision, only finish
    if no finish, sudden death rounds,
    each fighter can choose either only grappling or only striking
    ref flips a coin to see who goes first
    if still no finish occurs, becomes a draw

    Biting is my primary form of self defence - please don't take it away from me

    No rules at all, weapons and eye gouging allowed
    Brass knuckles allowed
    No refs
    Ball strikes allowed
    Hair pulling allowed
    12 to 6 elbows allowed
    Soccer kicks allowed
    Knees to a downed opponent allowed
    But no strikes to the spine, so, one rule but other than that let it go

    That's how they used to do in Pancrase so I don't why fighters would just go and break their hands

    In pancras yes but that was the rule set from the start , think it would be next to impossible the promote fighters to take on a pancreas style in modern mma ...... plus it would suck
