Jones vs Gustaffsson after one more impressive performance by Goose. Make it happen!
It's called dry humping because when people lay n pray they do very little damage. It's a technique that's great for nullifying your opponent and eaking by on points, and since point fighting is heavily frowned upon by fans of combat sports, people insult their style of fighting.
I wish they would implement a yellow card/stalling system. That way, instead of just standing the fighters back up for inaction, they can give a stalling warning; 2 warnings and you loose a point. This would apply to grapplers who make no attempt to pass guard/throw heavy punches, and for fighters who decide to fight like clay Guida in his last fight, Huston Alexander in his fight with Kimbo, or Silva in his fight with Maia after the 2nd round.
Implement a yellow card system, and eliminate octagon control. Instead make it 1 point per takedown, 2 for a slam, 1 for fully transitioning from full guard to side control, 1 point for full mount, 1 point for every 2 seconds you have your opponents back (for up to 3 points), 0.5 points for an escape, 2 for a reversal (encourages sweeps), nothing for a sub attempt (thats not effective aggression). Punches and kicks on the feet are scored as normal, and holding somebody against the cage doesn't net you any points unless you are throwing shots. I feel like that would make MMA much more entertaining/fair.
