    Arkansas MMA embarrasses me sometimes.

    So a promoter called me last week, saying he'd pay me $50 to be a judge on his fight show. Well, hell yeah, I was gonna go watch one of my training partners fight anyway. Might as well get paid for it.

    We get there and there's a staff meeting first. The promoter is an incredible excitable TKD guy who's like 6'4" 250 redhead. Just for a mental picture.

    "Alright guys, now, I'm sick of going to these piece of shit fight shows where fights end in 20 seconds cause some guys squeezes another guy's neck. No guillotines or RNCs first round."

    I was stunned. The other two judges, a TKD guy and a boxing guy, nodded their heads in approval. He asked me my opinion. "Fucking retarded" was the first thing to my mind but I sputtered out, "That's really silly."

    "Yeah but I'm sick of seeing guys who shouldn't win the fight taking the W cause of some BS move," said my giant ginger friend.

    "BS move? It's like telling boxing guys they can't jab! If you have fighters on your show that can't defend their back or don't know how to shoot a double without being guillotined, they shouldn't be fucking fighting!" I was livid at this point, completely red.

    "But it's the same shit every time!" he retorted. "I want to see some cool stuff like in the UFC."

    Oh, dear sweet 7 pound baby Jesus. "Anderson Silva, Demian Maia, BJ Penn...they all have a bad habit of RNCs. Are you saying that's a BS move?"

    The TKD judge was to the point he was fanning me with paper and Giant Ginger was telling me to breath. He moved on.

    "Also, no elbows or knees to the face. Except flying knees. Those are okay."

    WHAT.

    THE.

    FUCK.

    And thus began a night of terrible, terrible, way-to-green-to-be-in-there fighters. The ring doctor and I just cracked jokes all night (after one guy didn't answer the bell to the second round he said, "Doctor recommendation: Vagasil and a training camp.") as the promoter kept yelling "DAMAGE! DAMAGE!" and "Quit hugging I wanna see a fight!"

    lmao. They should just make the "fighters" dress up as Street Fighter 4 charaters and make them wear shiney lights attached thier gloves that go off when they punch. Then have a guy hide under the ring with a Shaolin kung fu movie sound effex machine

    it would be tough to fight with some bullshit promoter making up rules an hour before the fight lol. no chokes, or knees or elbows, but flying knees are ok, wow sounds like he needs to find some better fighters so he can quit making up new rules before the fights to try to get them to last a bit longer.

    and hell if someone doesn't train enough to avoid simple RnC's etc they will probably gas out and not be ready with cardio either so might as well let the strong choke out the weak in the first 20 seconds to save the crowd from watching some out of shape chumps sucking for air not doing shit.
