    Not that I don't agree with Shogun but the rules in place were the only way to get and keep MMA regulated in the states. Soccer kicks would have given the McCain's of the time far more firepower.

    The UFC really can't do anything about the rules when in the States. I'd love for them to incorporate head kicks/knees/stomps to a downed opponent as well as a yellow card type system. On a side note, on the past couple of cards, I haven't really noticed a fight that would require a yellow card.

    Let us wait patiently for Shogun's retort.

    Kinda sad that after over 6 years in the UFC he is still complaining about the rules.

    Oh, no mouth guards or gloves either. Those are for pussies. While we're at it, let's just live up to the original intention and surround the cage with live alligators.

    I think elbows, knees to the head on the ground or on a rising opponent, stomps and soccer kicks should be legal with commensurate training for referees to stop action immediately upon a finishing move. No soccer kicks should be thrown after a fighter is out, with a penalty of a no contest lingering.

    three 5-minute rounds hurt Shogun as well.

    I was never a huge fan of soccer kicks, but I hate when elbows are thrown specifically to cut. I could never get behind Florian as a fighter for that nonsense.



    None of that is going to change during Shogun's career, sadly.
