    Who is with me here? The judges, refs, and fans take a lot away from its potential IMO.

    I'm watching old events and it's pretty :bowdown: compared to UFC. I've just been used to it since it's been a while.

    Pride was so awesome! That's why they were so successful and able to buy out the UFC..............oh wait.

    PRIDE had it's fair share of questionable judging also. Granted, the fans, the rules, and the number of BIG fights per card were WAY better than what we see in the UFC.

    I think they should combine the pride and unified rules.

    Allow kicks to the head of a guy on the ground and punches behind the ear as long as they're not on the base of the skull like in pride, and allow elbows to the head like in ufc.


    Oh yeah, and ban foot stomps.

    :rofl: why ban foot stomps? Because you personally think they're gay and aren't a means to end the fight? What about leg kicks then, or shoulder strikes from inside someone's guard? Hell even elbows, none of those will knock you out.

    Because they're cheap and require no skill. In a real fight I'll be a foot stomping fool. They're definitely a means to end a fight.

    But in a competitive fight they're bullshit. Basically the same reasons you would outlaw groin shots. If you want to allow both, fine. If you want to ban both, fine. But allowing one and banning the other doesn't make sense.

    And yes, in my personal opinion, they're gay as fuck for competition.

    Those are all skillful strikes. Are you saying any strike that can be done should be allowed? Cool. Rabbit punches, strikes to the spine, headbutts, groin shots, etc are all cool, then. Right?
