Rules of the UFC ‘MMA Rules’

Don’t get me wrong, the guys who fight in the cage are some of the best conditioned and best trained fighters in the world, however, they are very much limited in their training.   They don’t train against weapons or against multiple attackers and there are a lot of things that are very effective in a street fight that they cannot do (groin strikes, eye gouging, biting).   As the old saying goes:  ‘You will fight the way you train’  There are some of the things that MMA fighters can not do therefore they don’t even train to do it.  If they train to do it and they accidentally do it in the the ring, it can result in penalties and they could even get disqualified. The following acts constitute fouls in a contest or exhibition of mixed martial arts and may result in penalties, at the discretion of the referee, if committed:    Basically, There is NO:                                                      i.     Butting with the head ii.    Eye gouging of any kind iii.    Biting iv.    Spitting at an opponent v.    Hair pulling vi.    Fish hooking vii.    Groin attacks of any kind viii.     Putting a finger into any orifice or any cut or laceration of an opponent                ix.     Small joint manipulation x.     Striking downward using the point of the elbow xi.     Striking to the spine or the back of the head                          xii.     Kicking to the kidney with a heel                                                                                 xiii.      Throat strikes of any kind, including, without limitation, grabbing the trachea xiv.     Clawing, pinching or twisting the flesh xv.     Grabbing the opponents clavicle xvi.     Kicking the head of a grounded opponent xvii.     Kneeing on the head of a grounded opponent xviii.    Stomping on a grounded opponent xix.     Holding the fence xx.     Holding the shorts or gloves of an opponent xxi.      Using abusive language in fenced ring/fighting area xxii.      Engaging in any unsportsmanlike conduct that causes injury to an opponent xxiii.     Attacking an opponent on or during the break xxiv.      Attacking an opponent who is under the care of the referee xxv.       Attacking an opponent after the bell has sounded the end of the round xxvi.      Timidity, including, without limitation, avoiding contact with an opponent, intentionally or consistently dropping the mouthpiece or faking an injury. xxvii.     Throwing the opponent out of the ring/fighting area xxviii.    Flagrantly disregarding the instructions of the referee xxix.      Spiking an opponent to the canvas on his head or neck xxx.       Interference by the corner These are all the things we encourage when your life is threatened, especially the bitting, ripping and gouging
