    All valid points and views. I think most of us are pretty clear on the differnces. My main thing is how fighters would cross over to differnt rules and whether it would really effect them. Shogun for instance usually uses alot of stomps and how he would fair in UFC with them completly disallowed. However thats already been sorta answered for us at 32.

    I prefer UFC rules as I think the ring limits some of the grapplers ability to work compared to a cage and I see the elbows as opposed to ground kicking a simple swap.

    Elbows although they do cut, they also provide a short yet powerful attack when in guard on the ground, simply relying on punches in close quarters like that limits you. The same but opposite goes for UFC with no headkicks on the ground, strikers have to go into a grapplers world on the floor for a final finish or stand people up and try to once again finish a fight on their feet.

    I do think the biggest change is the cage though as it presents so many more options than a ring. The Coleman / Fedor fight on 32 kinda just came to a stand still when Coleman wrestled Fedor into the corner, it made a kinda stalemate. Pushing him up against a cage may have presented some other options to explore with his grappling.

    Oh sure, you can't have "no holds barred" and expect any State athletic commission to sanction it.
    The old UFC was considered "Barbaric" and in order to achieve sanction status, and become a mainstream sport, they had to clamp down and enforce the new rules

    You definitely can't stomp, but I did see GSP hit Mayhem with an axe kick while Mayhem a couple of time when they fought (to the mid section, not head). Although, I don't really see how an axe kick is that different to a stomp in my opinion, especially the way I have learnt to throw it.
    Lol I know its odd like that, but you definently cant kick someone in the head

    ok theres no elbows allowed in pride but

    theres no stomps or knees to a ground opponent in the UFC

    the UFC disallows more then Pride does.

    and I actually like the no elbows to the head rule, I like to see them of the cuts but it makes sense to me.. you take away elbows to the head.. you limit the chances of a fight being stopped by a cut and no one wants to see that!

    Well in Pride your still allowed to elbow the body of a downed opponent. But i like the stomps and knees to the head on the ground. Personal preferance i suppose.
