    Following the riot at an MMA event last friday (involving James Thompson breaking a pre-fight promise to keep the fight standing, which resulted in fans apparently throwing beer cans and chairs into the ring), the Quebec boxing commission has decided to enforce existing rules more strictly than previously. This means no knees or elbows, and a 10-count for fighters who are knocked down...

    :ugh:

    This better get resolved quickly.

    Is it just me or is there no way that Dana would now allow a title fight to happen there?

    wait so thompson went to the ground causing a fan riot..... so the rules are changed to not allow knees and elbows and implements standing 10 counts?

    that makes perfect sense! :uh:

    No more Ufc in quebec, assholes :squint: I fucking really hate when people complain about fights going to the ground, even though some can drag on, it's part of the sport. Might as well watch K1
