    The New Jersey Athletic Commision is /asking/ for our input(as fans and competitors) to possibly allow knees to a downed opponent.

    Please read the thread and send a letter.

    I'm about to leave for work but when I get back I'm going to type something up.

    I would love to see a sanctioning body in America allow for this.

    Dana White even has said that he wished they had this rule.

    I think they should have them if they are safe...but really they should ask a medical expert on the subject. I'm not sure if the powerful downward compression on head/spine are safe or not.

    All they have to do is look at Pride and realize that they havent killed anyone.
